    What I am noticing is that, I build my solution in Visual Studio, I build & publish the app into the cloud services, wait for the barcode to show up from the publish process, then I update the app and it does not give me the latest version of my software. I tried a couple times, no luck. Next day I pick up my iPad and suddenly I have the latest version of my App. And I did not start up my development machine yet ...

    I tried this process also with updating from within the companion app and I got the same results..... it took 16 hours before I got the latest version of my App. I know this, because I manually set version numbers in my views and scripts.....

    Sorry for typos, English is not my native language

    I am also having the same issue. I am building and deploying my app using App builder. Its getting deployed successfully. But, when I made some modifications to my source code and save, the changes are not reflecting in my device app. Is it not the expected behaviour? I believe  once you made any changes the changes should automatically reflect in device. I am also seeing a new app icon in my android device. I think this changes should run on Companion App is n't it? correct e if I am wrong

    Hi Bala Chandra V,

    Unfortunately, your current inquiry does not contain enough details for us to provide the most accurate answer. You might want to get familiar with the extensive LiveSync documentation here. It explains in detail how the different types of LiveSync, under different setups and circumstances work. 

    For example, your saved changes will be pushed automatically to device only if your device is currently connected to your system and you have already deployed your app on it (or, alternatively, you have the companion app installed). This scenario, however, will work only in the AppBuilder clients that support working with connected devices. In another scenario, based on your current AppBuilder client and deployment method, you will need to use the three finger refresh gesture to get your changes. And so on.

    Let us know if you have any further questions. We would really appreciate it if you provide more details about your current setup and context, so that we can assist you in the most efficient manner.
