Publishing App does not update with new JS on subsequent publishing (SOLVED, but with further suggestion.....)

#1

I’ve been having trouble publishing subsequent updated versions of an app I’ve been creating. No matter how many time I publish the app or if I change the version number, the old version is still there.

I know that you can update the slug and create a new publication that way, but that isn’t ideal, I’d like my testers to simply open the original published app and see the changes.

To recreate the issue,
-create a new project in expo (I chose a tabbed project)
-publish the project, and open the project on a device…
-change some text in the HomeScreen.js file
-then publish again, in the expo app clear the history reopen the app using QR or link
-No changes

UPDATE! So I managed to see the changes by manually closing Expo Completely then opening the app, but also waiting about 15mins, I’m not sure which solved my problem.

Can I suggest you have a date/time published in the Expo Page for the App, and some indication that the is something being processed before app is fully available? It’ll save time trying to find a solution to something that is not technically is bug.

Many thanks! Otherwise fantastic work, the Expo ecosystem work brilliantly!
