  • Hello Nico,

    If you mean as an update notification, you should update the version number each time you update your app in order for the update notification to be pushed out to devices.

  • Hi Eric,

    When I open the store, I see this:

    • store
    • Nokia collection
    • apps
    • games
    • muziek
    • 2 updates

    When I click on the "2 updates", I am taken to the updates page, but my app is not there.

    I did change the version number from 1.0.7.0 to 1.1.0.0, should that be enough?

  • It turns out I was too impatient - it does show now on my wife's phone after a couple of days.

  • Hello Nico,

    Now I understand what you were asking. It may take 24-48 hours for the update to propogate to all servers before it will appear on your phone depending on which region your phone is set to.

  • Hello Eric,

    can this also mean that the update is not shown in the startup screen fo the store, while it is already available in the store when you search for the app? Are these served by different servers?

  • Hello Nico,

    Each market (country) is on its own pool of servers.
