Enable Force Update feature for mobile apps

When you go live with Bold, your websites and mobile apps will have to fetch data using our APIs. This is easy when it comes to websites as any update made to it will be easily available to anyone visiting the URL. However, the same is not true for mobile apps. When you make the switch to Bold and the contents are written on Bold, the users of your mobile apps will stop receiving latest content as they are linked to your old system. This would mean that you have to either

  1. Build and release a new app and remove the old app from App Store/Play Store. This side effect of this is that you will lose all your existing users until they manually download the new app from the store.
  2. Update the existing app so that it’s compatible with the Quintype suite of products (Recommended). While this seems like a straightforward option, there is a catch here. Not all of your users will update to a new version of your app as soon as it’s released. Which means that they will either stop seeing latest content or the app will crash if you shut down your old system. To avoid this, we have to force the users to update their apps when we switch to Bold. This is possible if your app already has the force update feature enabled on it. If it is not, then you need to release a new version of your app as soon as possible with the force update feature enabled in it. For example, if you are planning to go live with your updated mobile app powered by Bold in December, you need to release a new version of your current app with force update feature enabled at least by September so that there are at least 3 months for your existing users to update their app. Please read more about force update.
