Subject Re: Updating a Program

It takes a few hours of setup work and then half an hour to an hour each
time you create a new build.

I've created a class that helps with the process here
<http://bit.ly/2jQ73yh>. Once you set it up you don't have to change the
code. The setup instructions are in the class ASDocs. They may be slightly
outdated. Let me know.

Then in the future you update the application descriptor online. For the
updating process I use the steps listed here <http://bit.ly/2lcQc5K>.

Whenever you upload a new version and the user opens your app a window will
pop up that asks them if they want to update. If they click yes then your
existing application is updated. All the users existing data is preserved.
