  • Easily stay up to date with the latest theme release
  • Save time setting up your theme again 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.

Out of the Sandbox is the first and only Shopify theme provider to offer an app that lets you carry over theme settings from one version to another.

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The app will first scan all your installed themes (both published and unpublished) to determine what your current versions are.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  • The update will be installed as a new, unpublished theme in your shop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 current color, font, layout and other settings under "Customize theme" will be applied to the updated theme automatically

  • Easily preview your store in the new theme version

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

  • Any custom language HTML, JavaScript, CSS or Liquid code applied to the current template files will need to be manually applied to the updated theme

Which Shopify Themes are Supported?

Every Out of the Sandbox theme is supported:

What About Shopify Theme Customizations?

If the template files have been edited directly from the template editor, then these customizations must be manually copied over to the updated theme's template files. When using the Theme Updater app to install the latest version, you will still have a copy of the previous theme.

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 by Out of the Sandbox reviews (10)


WOW! Great thinking Out of the Sandbox Team. I was preparing for the daunting task of rebuilding my website after an theme upgrade and then discovered you had developed this. Thanks so much!


A much needed app but it does not carry over all of the previous theme's customizations.


Excellent theme updater. It works in the background and takes the frustration out of manually reinstalling the website theme. Great company and even better support!

Keep doing big things Out Of The Sandbox!


I appreciate the folks at Out of the Sandbox - great with troubleshooting and this update worked well. We LOVE our new theme (Turbo) - already convinced a dear friend to get it for her business.


Makes it easy to keep your store updated with the latest from Out of the Sandbox!


The Theme Update worked very well. I had postponed updating my theme because I was worried about the time involved. When Theme Update launched, I went ahead. It only took me a few hours to update my theme, and that included a lot of tinkering beyond just the update.


Another example of how well these guys have it figured out.


I installed it yesterday, and I already publish updated version of Retina theme. It was very easy and simple to do. I really like this app. I'm expecting another upgrade on the theme soon.


This just goes to show you how well Out of the Sandbox supports their code and their customers.


Wow! I was getting ready to pay someone to upgrade my Parallax theme to the latest release and here comes an app that does it for me. Flawlessly. I could preview it and tweak it until I was ready to publish it. Awesomeness in an app. Thank you guys so very much!
