Menu - Do you have a standard "Help | About" form?
  v3.0 Posted at 19/11/2014 6:18 PM by Rebecca Liu
Every application you build should have the same "Help | About" form. The form should always display the following information:
  1. Version number
  2. URL
  3. Description of the product and what it does.
    Tip: This should be consistent with your standard description on the product box, website homepage, product page etc.
  4. Contact details (especially a phone number)
  5. Branding (logo)
