You updated your app's content, but this change is not reflected when browsing your app on your device. This article explains why the change may not show on the app and how you can work around it by clearing your device's browser cache to refresh your app's content. 

Note: Any changes you make to the Design and Build section will take effect immediately. However, the majority of the Publish Step changes require a full app update, since those elements are built into the app file or can't be edited without submitting a new version.


The problem lies in the fact that your device's browser fetches the content from its cache and does not send out a new request to get the updated content.


Note: The exact steps may vary depending on the device you are using and the Operating System version they are running on.
