  • Easily stay up to date with the latest theme release
  • Preserve your theme customizations with every update
  • Ensure that you have the latest features and bug fixes

Out of the Sandbox themes are the best reviewed and most popular Shopify themes ever — and now there's an easier way to stay up to date with the latest version of your favorite Shopify theme.



The Shopify Theme Updater app will display the current version of your Out of the Sandbox Shopify theme, as well as the latest available version. With a single click, you can now upgrade to the latest version without losing any of your theme settings or customizations.


Out of the Sandbox is the first and only Shopify theme provider to offer an app that lets you carry over changes you’ve made directly to your theme files, as well as preserving your theme setting configurations. This means that you can easily stay up to date and make sure you always have the latest and greatest version of your theme running in your shop.

★★★ Forever Free Basic Plan + a New Pro Plan! ★★★



Out of the Sandbox customers always get complimentary theme updates for life — which means ongoing access to new features and additions!


The free version of the app makes it fast and easy to update your theme to the most recent version available. With the new Theme Updater Pro plan, you'll have additional access to exclusive features like email notification when a new version of your theme is available, and support for copying over language files!

How it Works


The app will first scan all your installed themes (both published and unpublished) to determine what your current versions are. You'll be able to determine which themes have more recent updates available. If you choose to update a theme:



  • The update will be installed as a new, unpublished theme in your shop

  • Your earlier theme version will still be available

  • Your current color, font, layout and other settings under "Customize theme" will be applied to the updated theme automatically

  • Customizations that you’ve made directly to theme files will also be carried over to your new version

  • Easily preview your store in the new theme version before going live

  • Publish the updated theme whenever you're ready to make the switch


Which Shopify Themes are Supported?


Every Out of the Sandbox theme is supported:



What About Shopify Theme Customizations?

The Theme Updater App now supports customizations! During the update, the app will check to see if you’ve made any customizations directly to the code by comparing your files to the new theme files. If the app finds any custom code or modifications to the original files, it will attempt to replicate them in your new updated version. If the customizations are overly complex and the app is unable to carry them over fully intact, it will identify the files in question and notify you, so that you have the opportunity to update them manually.



Theme customizations are supported in Parallax 3.0+, Retina 4.0+, Mobilia 5.0+, Responsive 6.0+ and Turbo 2.0+. Upgrading an older theme version will require the settings to be configured again.


If you are using a theme that’s older than these versions, the app will still be able to upgrade your theme and move over select settings, but any custom code will not be carried over.

We also have some tips on how to make Shopify theme customizations easier to carry over customizations from version to version, as well as why some Shopify theme customizations can cause problems in your store.

Theme Updater as been a great addition to our store, www.manemanagement.com. Our customers love the app even though they have no idea of the inner workings. It just works seamlessly with our store!

Wow works great. Was a little nervous about using this, but it updated all our design and Christmas Gift Products without loosing anything.

I like out of the sandbox, I paid a 3 figure sum for one that almost instantly became outdated and could not be updated without building it from scratch (edits + custom code, over 10 hours work) and am now finding alot of customers are seeing products as out of stock when they are in fact still available, so is now costing me money and I am forced into choosing spending 10+ hours making what I already have or spend another 3 figure on a newer theme. So I emailed in. Their response "upgrade and spend 10 hours making what you have, or buy a shiny new theme" so zero offer of help or support.

Great app and we are really glad to have this available for our Parallax theme. Unfortunately, upgrades and how to get them installed were not on my roadmap when I was shopping for a theme. I cannot believe that we overlooked such an important feature. Out of the Sandbox themes are incredible for all the fine details they offer with so many large and small touches that other themes would require hiring a developer. With OOS they are standard with customer service second to none.

So we love our theme, but then realized we really needed to upgrade our Parallax 2.4 to the new 3+ versions with added features. Enter the Theme Updater...what a time saver and it worked incredibly well. We had just a couple custom items we needed to redo, but now that we are on 3+ this should not be an issue again. This truly is an invaluable product and it's free! Kudos to Out of the Sandbox for helping its customers.

So far this has worked pretty well with our heavily customized Turbo 2.1 Update. We had extensive customization in a few files but they were easily fixed by hand. Will definitely continue using.

Great team support from these guys!!

This app works perfectly! Carries over customizations perfectly. We have updated twice since installing and have had no problems at all.
