Re: [Dhis2-devs] [Android] New Releases of Data Capture and Tracker Capture Apps is out!!


Hi Ifeany,

 We are seeing that Google play sometimes doesn't update all fields when we
release, sometimes information is cached and people see different dates or
versions, but we have seen it in the web, not in the phones.

- can you tell us if this is happening in different devices??

- can you verify which version are you running?  To do that, go the App
Menu -> About this App      It should say 1.6.6

If it doesn't, one option is to uninstall the app and install it again, and
if that still doesn´t work, then you can download the apk from Github
following this link
<https://github.com/dhis2/dhis2-android-datacapture/releases>, however,
downloading the apk might be a solution for you, but not for 60 facilities.

Android 4.4 is not a problem.

Let us know how it goes.
