Update your Magpi+ by Friday, October 4th

There’s a major new version of Magpi+

We’ve created a new version of our Magpi+ mobile app for data collection on Android and iOS.  This new update improves server and app performance when many users are connecting and uploading at once — and it’s a mandatory update for all users.
You’ll need to update your copies of our Magpi+ mobile app to the current version (6.1.4) by Friday, October 4th in order to continue uploading data from the field.  If you don’t update, you will be able to continue to collect data, and your collected data will remain safe on your mobile devices until you update the app.  You should not delete your Magpi+ app, as this will delete any not-yet-uploaded data.
For most users either on iOS or Android, the update should happen automatically, and has probably happened already.  If for some reason your data collectors have turned off automatic updates (which is not recommended) see the instructions below this email.  Data collectors currently in the field without an internet connection will be able to continuing using the current app to collect data until they are back on the network, at which point they will need to update their app.

You should not delete your Magpi+ app, as this will delete any not-yet-uploaded data
