How to stop app auto-updates

Setting your devices to not automatically update will allow you to choose what versions of apps you are running, This is especially helpful when newer versions don't run as well, for example, when  an SB new version does not have a favorite option. The following are instructions how to disable automatic updates.

FOR ANDROID DEVICES

Option A - From Google Play Store - Disable updates for ALL your apps

1. Open the Google Play Store app on your device

2.  Tap the menu button ( the 3 dots in the upper corner) and then select Settings.

3. Tap "Auto-update apps"

4. Select "Do Not Auto-update apps"

Option B - From Google Play Store - Disable updates for an individual app

1. Open the Google Play Store app on your device

2. Search for the app you want, or already have installed

3. Tap the menu button (the 3 dots in the upper corner)

4. Uncheck the box aside "Auto update"

Option C - Settings menu

1. On your device, tap your main menu button, the one to the right of your main home button

2. Tap "System Settings"

3. Tap "Apps"

4. Select the app you want

5. Uncheck the box for notifications, under the clear cache button, and confirm



This option doesn't always work, but is the easiest, and has worked for me on all SB and Perk apps.

FOR iOS DEVICES

1. Open up the Settings app.

2. Tap on iTunes & App Store.

3. Under the section titled Automatic Downloads, you’ll see an item called Updates.

4. Tap on the toggle switch to turn it off so that it goes from green to gray. If it’s already gray, then the setting is already changed and there’s nothing you need to do further.
