In this guide, we'll explore how you can initiate changes to your app and seamlessly navigate between those that go live instantly and those requiring store updates

Changes on Your side

Barberly empowers you with the ability to make timely adjustments to your app in two key ways:

Immediate Updates (Live Changes):

  • Updated Design: Give your app a fresh and appealing look by tweaking its background, logo or colors

  • Texts and Content: Keep your clients informed and engaged by making real-time edits to information and content

  • Images: Showcase your barbershop's vibe by effortlessly swapping out images for lookbooks, barber's and service's avatars

To apply immediate updates:

  • Access your app's configuration page and make the necessary changes

  • Click the "Apply to Live" button

The best part? Your clients won't need to go through the hassle of updating the app from the store. Changes will seamlessly appear in the app, providing a fresh experience without any manual downloads

External Changes (App Store Updates):

Icon, Brand name, Description, Screenshots: When it's time to enhance your app's presence on app stores, here is the step-by-step guide:

  1. Make the Necessary Changes: Update your app's icon, name, description, as needed on your app's configuration page and click the "Apply to Live" button

  2. Submit an Update Request: Much like your app's initial launch, submit the updates to the app store

  3. Review and Approval by the stores: Apple and Google typically review changes within 3-5 days to ensure they meet their guidelines

  4. Full rollout: Once your changes are approved and published, your clients will see upgrades on their devices, and we inform you accordingly

Updates / Technical Improvements by Barberly

On our side, we at Barberly continually strive to enhance your app experience through technical improvements. Most of these improvements are made available to your clients right away unless they intentionally disable them. In such cases, updates remain accessible for manual download from app stores.
