You do understand that this is how software use to be, right?
The company in question puts their software on their own website and "rubber stamps" their own updates.
Even the most stringent QA will miss things... users behave and use it differently quite frequently.
Yeah, I understand that is how software used to be... When a loaf of bread was fifty cents (U.S.), cars all had carbeurators, and lot of TVs still had vacuum tubes (other than the CRT).
Oh, and before everyone and his dog wasn't trying to steal your personal info off your smartphone through the internet; because smartphones didn't exist, the "internet" was still called DARPAnet, and China was still an agrarian society...
Times change. Sometimes that means old habits have to, too.
For example, Microsoft was slow to learn that the world wasn't one big, happy, computing family, and they (well, mostly their users) suffered for decades because of it.
But by the time Android came around (especially considering it is the idiot-bastard-son of Linux, which is the idiot-bastard-knockoff of Unix) there was simply NO excuse to not have a more "hardened" approach to software distribution, like iOS does.
Call it a Walled Garden or whatever, the proof is in the pudding...
