Binary (App File) Updates
The following changes to your app require a complete republish to the app stores to replace the app file or app version:
App Title (iOS only)
Keywords (iOS only)
Screenshots (iOS only)
Adding Push Notification module after initial publish
Adding radio or Audio podcasts after initial publish in order to allow for background playing
Adding Facebook integration for Log In feature after initial publish
These changes may also require that you email us the change, as some elements are locked post-publish to avoid confusion about this republish process. Let us know if one of these changes was made at shoutem.com/contact, and we will update this in the builder, and resubmit the app to the stores on your behalf.
Users will see this as a store-based update, or a new app version.
Server-based updates don't require a new app file submission, and will be seen by users after a Republish and manual app restart on their end after 15 minutes.
Examples of server-based changes include:
Module icon changes
Module positioning changes
Any Design Phone/Android image change (except App Icon and Launch image)
To put it most briefly, if it isn't on the Binary updates list above, it can be updated to the live app without file resubmission.
