For Developers:

Easy to Combine

QuickUpdate uses the same dictionary that English UpdateKit and Update Checker 2.0 use, therefore, it’s very easy to use UpdateKit, Update Checker 2.0, and QuickUpdate for your shortcut, as you can use the same dictionary.

Multiple Languages

You want your shortcut to be suitable for everyone. That’s why QuickUpdate has support for English, Spanish, or Vietnamese!


Sometimes, users want to install updates later. That’s why QuickUpdate lets users choose whether they want to update or not.

Offline Mode

If you’re offline, you still want to use your all of your shortcuts. That’s why QuickUpdate has an “Offline Mode,” where instead of your shortcut stopping if the user is offline, the shortcut will continue.

Tap To Check For Updates

Not only will QuickUpdate check for updates for your shortcut, but it will also check for updates for itself when you tap on it. This not only means that the user can decide when they want to check for any updates to QuickUpdate instead of constantly checking and taking up boot time, but also means that your user’s boot times will be kept optimized on the newest methods.

Multi-Decimal Support

You want to be able to have multiple decimals in your version, such as 2.2.2. That’s why QuickUpdate is one of the fastest Updaters with Multi-Decimal support.

Semi-Worded Version Support

You want the ability to have worded versions, such as “2.0 Beta”, or “4.0 Aqua Edition.” That’s why QuickUpdate has support for semi-worded versions, which means as long as your version has a number first before the words, you can call your version whatever you would like.

Easy Implementation

QuickUpdate is very easy to implement. Down below is how to do it! QuickUpdate (P.S.: Shortcut Name is optional and is only for those who want to combine it with UpdateKit. If your shortcut only supports QuickUpdate, it is unneeded.


QuickUpdate has a Download badge, which you can put in to your description. Just copy this text over and your description should have the badge!

By looking at QuickUpdate’s actions, I was able to optimize my Updater.
That’s Great! Just give credit to QuickUpdate for help on Optimizing your Updater.


Does QuickUpdate have support for Multi-Decimal in older versions?

The oldest version that has Multi-Decimal is 1.4. Every version older than 1.4 does not support Multi-Decimal.


I get an error saying that an update is available even though one isn’t.
If you have a version number that hasn’t released yet on RoutineHub, such as you give your Dictionary 1.8 but the latest on RoutineHub is 1.7, it will detect an update.


What iOS version is QuickUpdate for?
iOS 12. However, when iOS 13 comes out, future releases may support iOS 13. Please be aware though that while not often, the iOS 12 version may still have updates after iOS 13 releases, through not frequently.
