Updating Your Agents of Discovery App

The Agents of Discovery App and the Mission Maker platform receive constant updates from our development team to make them easier to use and to ensure that they are compatible with the ever-growing list of different phones and devices out there.

While the newest version of the Mission Maker will automatically replace the old one, the same is NOT true for the Mobile App! You and your visitors will need to make sure that the latest version of the Agents of Discovery app is installed on the device(s) being used. Every device is different, but we’ve provided some steps below that you can follow to ensure that you are on the latest version.

  2. Look at the profile icon in the top-right corner. If any of your installed apps have updates available, a number will appear in the corner of that icon in a red circle. (In the example above, this phone has 6 apps that are ready to receive new updates.)
  3. Scroll down to the Available Updates section. If the Agents of Discovery app is in this list, that means there’s a brand new update!
  4. Tap Update next to each app to update it, or Update All to update all your apps at once.
  5. Wait for the download to complete. Once it’s ready, the spinning circle will disappear and a button that says Open will appear instead.

It’s always a good idea to download new updates when they’re available! Updating will ensure that:

  • You aren’t experiencing any old bugs or crashes that have been fixed in the latest version
