Question

Mobile Client Updates

Hi

We are distributing Pega Native built app to end users using QR codes. I see there are frequent updates to the mobile client.

1. Is there any forum that tells what are the improvements made to the Pega Mobile Client?

2. What is the best way to push the mobile client updates to the end users. Want to avoid frequent requests to users to download the app again.

Hello,

1. Every release Pega publishes 'What's new in Mobility' recordings and articles on Community:

https://community.pega.com/knowledgebase/products/whats-new/platform#p-cfc87317-c447-4909-aaca-f76902b002ab

2. For end users the most convenient way of receiving updates is from app store or Mobile App Management system. Then receiving updates even every few days is not painful. With QR code based distribution it's more troublesome and you should find the right balance between update frequency and user engagement. Releasing update twice a year should be acceptable for most users. In case of urgent fixes you may have to do it more often though. Concentrate on pre rollout testing in order to minimize the risk.
