Instructions for Updating Your App:


Has this rolled out yet? I’m still on and google play also shows for me.

Also is there any way to be put on the list for early roll out of new updates?


As with all play store updates, it’s a staggered rollout but, yes, it’s begun. I’ve received the update.

I would be interested in that myself but I’m afraid the answer is no.


I thought that the play store staggered roll out was about 2-3 days max. I had no idea that it could take over a week, is this normal?


As I understand it, the pace of rollout is up to the developer. Republic tends to be conservative and start slowly in case unanticipated issues crop up. That’s also why no many how many disclaimers one is willing to sign (I’d happily sign them too), I don’t see them ever entertaining an early release program.


I just got mine today…hopefully you get yours soon.


Hi @l33tlinuxh4x0r,

In the original announcement, @beng noted this would roll out

It reached 50% yesterday, and is currently targeted for 100% deployment on 12/11, but please understand that could change.
