vers 2.3 available yet?

Postby zToddW » Tue Jul 29, 2014 7:15 pm

Anyone got the new version 2.3 yet? When I sync it doesn't update itself. I'm excited to use the new custom contact lists.

I have it. The update is not a function of doing a sync within the app, but rather what your settings are for the app in your App Manager under Settings. You can also go to the Play Store anytime and download the update.

I have a kindle fire hd and I can't get the update. I deleted the app and downloaded it again, to no avail, still no update. Is this a problem?

According to the LDS Tools app page on Amazon, version 2.3.0 is available. So I'm surprised you wouldn't get it with a fresh download. Are you checking your version from the app using Help > About on the menu? If so, what version does it say you are running?

It says I have 2.3.0, but I don't have access to Meetinghouse on my menu, go figure.

In order to use the meetinghouse feature, you have to have a maps app installed – I think probably Google Maps. You may also have to have location services enabled...

Well I already had MapQuest, but I downloaded Google Maps. Deleted LDS Tools and downloaded it again, still no menu item for meetinghouse or reports. Does anyone out there get the full version 2.3 on their kindle fire hd?

What setting should I look for to change? I'm pretty sure I've had lds tools update notifications before automatically.

I just tried un-installing and installing it again from the Play store. It installed version 2.2.0.7 again. Any more suggestions?

What version of Android are you on? I'm wondering if they upped the minimum required and that's all the higher your device can go.
