In order to help you carry out exceptional care, the Birdie Carer app often needs to be updated so that it runs as smoothly as possible to give you the best experience. 

However, we are aware that it can be time-consuming to have to update your app, so this article will show you how to set your App up to automatically update - making using Birdie even easier for you.

Why is it important to be on the latest version of the app?

It’s very normal for an app to be regularly updated by its developers. These updates allow us to release improvements and fix bugs, so you’re always getting the best experience using the Birdie app.

When a new version of the app is released, it’s important to make the update as soon as possible. Using an older version can mean you will notice the system slow down or not work as well as it should. If you are having issues when using the app, it’s a good idea to update it. Often this will fix the problems you’re experiencing.

How do I know when a new version has been released?

You can set the Android and iOS app stores to auto-update your apps. This ensures you’re always using the latest version, and means you don’t need to remember to do it.

On iPhone (IOS)

On your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch, go to Settings > [Click on your name] > iTunes & App Store. Then turn on App Updates.

On Android

Open the Google Play Store app > click on your icon in the top right corner > Settings > Network Preferences > Auto-update apps > select an option:
