I really like the way that "Financier" notifies you that an update is available. The Red stripe across the top is brilliant !!!

Good Job !!!

Thanks! It's been a while since that's been activated, LOL. :)

The technical reason is actually quite interesting for it though:

On a normal website, excluding aggressive caching, you always get the latest version when you load.

With Financier, you actually get the version you had last time you visited (if you visited previously). Financier then downloads the 'new' version of the app in the background and then shows you the banner to refresh.

The main site (https://financier.io) does this too when it gets new updates since it works offline as well!

One thing I've been thinking about implementing was a link to the announcements board of the forums so people could easily see what's changed.

Anyways! Thanks again!

Is there a way of finding out what version of Financier I am using ? Or does it matter ?   :)
