Reverting back to a previous build.

I made some changes to my app and when I did the build a lot more than just the info I updated had been changed. How do I go back to the previous version on the builder so I can start with the correct working version for my updates?

    Sorry, but we do not store old versions of your APK. You should check your local backups/downloads for that old APK if you need it for some reason, but we don't have it.

    Thanks Collin, I do have a backup of my previous published APK. How do I make that the current version on Andromo instead of the latest one so I can figure out where the issue lies with the newest version? Do I have the ability to somehow direct Andromo to use the earlier version? Or can I send a copy of the apk to you to make the changes?

    I'm not understanding what you mean or why you want to do that. There is no way to "go back" to a previous project. You will either need to stick with your current APK, or update it if you like using the site.

    Hey Colin,

    I have a version available on the Google Play Store (version 1.4) I had
    tried to update that version on Andromo to version 1.5. (what I called it)
    When I made the changes on Andromo a lot of changes were made to the
    program visually that I had not changed once I opened the .apk. I did not
    upload the new .apk to the Google play store because of that. So now on
    Andromo I have the new (bad) version... what I want to do is use the old
    1.4 version instead of the 1.5 version so I can find out why all the
    graphical changes happened when I had not made any changes in the graphics
    or colors. Just some text changes was all I did. I do have a copy of the
    1.4 apk in addition to the new 1.5 that isn't correct. Is there any way to
    see/go back to the v1.4 apk on the Andromo builder?

    Sorry I'm not a REAL app writer hence the need for Andromo. I did manage to
    make a nice app... I just can't seem to see what happened to my
    graphics/looks of the app when I ade only some text changes.

    It kind of sounds like you haven’t uodated that app in a loooong time. As in, before June 28, 2017.

    Andromo v5 was rewritten to reflect the new Android Material Design guidelines which have a more modern visual design.

    You will simply want to take a look at the new Dashboard styles and pick one that will work for your app and possibly adjust the “Feature” image for each of your Activities or choose one of the “icon” style dashboards for a quick update.

    Hey Colin,

    OK, that explains it.... I will go in and rework the app visuals and make
    my necessary changes.

    Ok, good luck with your apps. The new modern material design visual styles will greatly improve the look of your apps!
