  • 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.


Theme upgrades are always FREE — and so is the app!



Out of the Sandbox customers always get complimentary theme updates for life — and using this app is free too!


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The app will first scan all your installed themes (both published and unpublished) to determine what your current versions are.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  • The update will be installed as a new, unpublished theme in your shop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+. 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.

Very good app! Makes the life easier. Recommend highly Turbo themes too!

Such a great app. Checking for updates is something I forget to do. Now in the last two months, I have easily updated Baby Bootique's theme twice via this app. I still have a bit of merging work to do because of customizations but if you don't have any custom code in your theme, it's a one click update!

Makes life easier with this app. Definitely recommended if you use Out of the Sandbox themes.

Although you need to be aware that any custom installations/modifications of the html code will be removed if you update.

So make sure to save and compare.

I was very quick to judge the app, so I am taking the time to re-write this review. It was extremely helpful, and any problems that I had during the update process were my own.

Thank you again, for providing amazing, robust themes and professional support.

it's good for the store with less customizations, not for us. I saw my store is totally difference in the new update theme. I don't think I can use it.

Great themes! So far no update to mine...I'll modify the review once I know it's working. :)
