Automatic App Update even if local storage has changed

New

Mobile Application | Reactive Web Application.

Outsystems sends most updates of an app directly to a mobile device, unless you change the local memory (the entities) of an application. In this case it is necessary to uninstall and reinstall the app.

This procedure is very cumbersome for most users, since they are used to other apps that update the app completely.

It would be very helpful if Outsystems would have the possibility to automatically check if the local memory needs to be updated and if an update is necessary, Outsystems would also do this directly without the user having to reinstall the app.

In general it would be nice if there is the possibility to push a build update to the users without having them explicit deinstalling and reinstalling a application. If possible it would be nice, if the local database would be migrated to a change -> kind of having a div between the databases and a update statement executed.

In the following szenarios a User needs to install a new build.

  • the configurations for a mobile platform were changed
  • the Extensibility Configurations property was changed, for instance, modification, addition or removal of mobile plugins, changes to status bar transparency, custom icons or splashscreens, and so on
  • an external resource of a plugin was updated
  • the application name was changed
  • the entry module or its name was changed
  • the application icon was replaced
  • the main color of the application was changed

Its not always easy to let your user to know that they need to manually install a update of the application. It would be nice if there is a feature, which checks on that ground breaking changes and gives the users a "one click" update, so that its a seamless upgrade of the application.


Hi Daniel,

Not that it will solve all that you describe in your idea, but I think you should check out the following Forge component that helps forcing mobile updates.
