How is live update in Appflow

I recently tried this new feature on my app, what do you guys think of it ?


The live update is cool, but I realized the new version is only stored in the local storage.
Also, if user click app -> clear storage
the new updated version will be gone and app will be reverted to it’s original version
let me know about you ideas and how you handle this situation, thanks !

If the user clears the storage, once it opens the app it will download latest files again.

If you configure the plugin with background update method, then the app launch the old version, downloads the files in background and on next launch will show the updated version, but if you configure the plugin with auto update method, then it will wait showing the splash screen until the download is finish, so the updated version will always be shown despite they deleted it.

Thank you so much !!
Have you noticed issue that, “auto” update method doesn’t always update the app.
It’s very inconsistent.
