What is my Shopgate app version?

In this article, you will find out how to identify your Shopgate app version.

 

 

General history of the Shopgate apps

At the end of the year 2010, Shopgate has introduced its first native iOS app - a revolutionary app that enabled shoppers to browse through many mobile shops all in one place. A year later, the first Shopgate native Android app was born. Ever since then, multiple teams at Shopgate have been striving to maintain and improve the apps.

Right before Thanksgiving 2014, Shopgate has released a major update 5.0. Backend code structures and frontend layout designs have been completed overhauled.

The Shopgate iOS 5.0 first came out in October 2014. Most existing iOS apps have been updated since then. Apps which use the Catalog Scanner function are not updated to 5.0 due to a compatibility issue.

The Shopgate Android 5.0 first came out in November 2014. Most existing Android apps have been updated since then. Apps which use the Catalog Scanner function are not updated to 5.0 due to a compatibility issue.

 

Am I using the latest Shopgate app?

You are using the latest Shopgate app (version 5.0), if you answered "yes" to any of the questions below:

  • If you can access categories in a Slide-Out Sidebar on the left.
  • If you see a Barcode Scanner button on the right of your search bar.
  • If you see Favorites listed as a menu point at the bottom.

* You will be able to see your app's version number directly in the apps after we release the next app update.
