Latest iOS app will soon be mandatory

Paul Hewson

Back in November of last year, we released a brand new version of the iOS Commusoft app for iPhone and iPad users. This completely overhauled the diary, added voice search, and improved the app's speed.

As we understood that change can be difficult, we gave users the ability to revert back to the old app, allowing them to upgrade at a time that was more convenient for them.

Now, after 6-months, we are planning to remove the old version of the app. Most iOS users have already moved to the most recent version of the Commusoft application, however, if you haven't yet, you will automatically be moved over from Monday 24th of June 2019.

To make sure you're not caught off guard, check out the changes to the app below. Don't forget, you can move over sooner - and we recommend that you do - find out how.

Please note, this only applies to the v4 Commusoft app. This does not impact v3 users.

Want to update now?

If you wish to start using the the latest version of the app, follow these steps.

Go to the Settings app on your iPhone or iPad, scroll down until you find Commusoft and switch on ‘Use New Diary’. Restart the Commusoft app (double tap home button and swipe Commusoft away), before opening the app again. You will now see the updated interface and latest features in Commusoft.

 

If you don't do this before Monday 24th of July 2019, the app will automatically upgrade to the latest version.
