How do you handle the fact that some users turn off automatic updates? Does your server support old versions of your app just to keep everyone happy? Surely Facebook doesn’t support users who installed their app in 2010. Right? Websites are so much easier because there is only 1 live version, but mobile apps seem to be a completely different animal.
I am still in beta, so not production ready, but as I make changes and pivot like any other startup, I have the luxury of informing my (~20) flexible test users that their current version is broken and they need to update to the latest version. I want to run A/B tests on real users, but I’m not ready for my app to go live, pivot, break, and then receive bad reviews. Once I go live, what is the best way to continue pivoting and improving my app when some of my users will be back at version 1.0? What does everyone else do since we are still pre-ionic deploy?
