Guidelines for notifying user of an update from store?

    Question

  • Are there any guidelines or best practices to inform users within the app that there is an updated version that they can download from the store?

    Thanks!

  • The store will provide its own notification. If you want to provide your own notification when the user launches your app you would need to track that yourself: there is no API to let the app know that there is an update available, but if you have a server side component you could track that there.
