Can I disable automatic updates to the ProntoForms app?




In order to take advantage of new features and optimizations, your team should always use the most recent version of the ProntoForms app on their mobile devices.  App store updates are often automatic.  However, some teams prefer to test out their forms on new versions of the app before having their team update.  Automatic updates can be turned off on each device in order to facilitate this.
