I use the Stack Exchange mobile app and I'd like to see one change to help end users out.

On the menu towards the bottom there is a "help" link, which is a bit misleading. There is no help at this link: this link is only version information about the app.

Change its text from help to about and either add a real help link that runs a tour of how Stack Exchange works just like the Stack Overflow tour.

Or eliminate "help" altogether and simply rename it to "about."

    Great suggestion, we've had plans to add a help center in the app for a while but haven't yet and the current presentation of what we have is definitely misleading. – Kasra Rahjerdi Aug 27 '14 at 16:00
  • @KasraRahjerdi - will this come in the form of an update via the play store? – JonH Aug 29 '14 at 18:28
  • This change has been done in iOS. – Arie Litovsky Sep 9 '14 at 18:59
  • And the android app I see is still old :|. – JonH Sep 11 '14 at 18:47

As of the next update for both iOS and Android the "Help" item in the left sidebar is now labeled "About", thanks for the great suggestion!
