Check for updates supports multi-decimal version numbers. Your version numbers on RoutineHub must match the version in your dictionary. Version numbers are numbers such as 1.5.2 or 2.1, any value with multiple numbers and decimals.

Alternatives

  • UpdateHub (Beta) by @tdevx - UpdateHub can be integrated into your shortcut with just one comment action. Checking shortcuts for updates becomes slower the more shortcuts you have.
  • UpdateKit by @MikeBeas - UpdateKit is run at the top or bottom of your shortcut to make sure it stays up to date when run. This is helpful if you are giving your shortcut to people new to shortcuts because they do not have to run something else. This will slow down your shortcut and make it so your shortcut can't be used in Siri or the notification widget.
