We have used this app since its release.
Be aware of that many 3rd Party Themes does not offer Automatic Theme Updates. You need then to download the newest theme, and do all the customization once again (this can take much time / have a high cost).

However, the themes from Out of the Sandbox offers a Automatic Theme Updater. That is a huge advantage.

We have a website with many 3rd party apps, and a 3rd party Theme Editor.
When using this, all changes we have made are included into the new updated version.

If some code will not be transferred, we are notified of that in the app.
Please note their app have two price points, one with support within 3 days, and one with priority support.

In my opinion the cost of both the plans are easy to justify, if you run a business with revenue.

We have updated the Turbo-Portland theme from Shopify to the new Shopify 2.0 theme with no problems, using Theme Updater Plus.

If we need help, the support from Out of the Sandbox has allways been great.
We had a serious problem with a 3rd party app that was not compatible with the theme. We was sent in all direction, everyone pointing towards another. Out of the Sandbox stepped up, gave us clear instruction, and solved the problem for us, although the error was with another app.

Conclusion: We are happy with both the products and support offered by Out of the Sandbox, and a big thanks to Euwi!

We appreciate this app and how it helps updating to the latest version. We always try to run the latest code on our website and being a small shop this really helps go from version to version without having to do it all manually. There have been times we were not able to use it but that was outlined and expected. For instance going from pre OS2 to a OS2 supported theme required a lot of manual updates but this was expected as OS2 was a different framework altogether. Once we got past that upgrade the Theme Updater app has helped keep our theme up to date with little to no help needed. We have had to reach out to support and found there the help we received to be quick and support was knowledgeable.

This is an amazing Theme Updater which works perfectly with my Turbo Theme (I purchased from Out of the Sandbox). It is awesome that it can even update most of the CUSTOM CHANGES. It is perfectly good that it can also provide a list of details of anything which cannot be updated automatically, so I still can easily update it manually.

It is always a great challenge to update any shopify theme. This Auto Theme Updater makes me only trust and install theme developed by this company.

Of course, elaborate codes may experience problems when migrating to a new version. Especially if custom code was used. If this should be the case, the support helps out promptly and competently. Usually the update works without problems and with only a few clicks. Basically, a great service that other themes do not offer.

Hi The Philosopher's Shirt team!

We are happy to hear that you have had such a great experience with updating your theme!

The Theme Updater is a great way to streamline the updating process of any Pixel Union, Out of the Sandbox, or Archetype theme, and we appreciate you taking the time to leave this review for us.

An absolute MUST HAVE. I have been using the theme updater for several years now and it is the best way for me to upgrade themes. Be careful if you made custom changes to your shop or added other apps...Now that we are using Shopify 2.0 coding, most apps get attached to the new theme automatically, but some apps, that are not Shopify 2.0 upgraded, might have to be added manually. Otherwise, I really LOVE the app and the features it offers.

This is a life-changing app that enables easy updating of a highly customised theme. If you've put in the work to update your theme version to an OS 2.0 version, this will make ongoing updates a breeze. Our experience has been incredible - we did not think it would work for us. There are a heap of negative reviews from store owners who would probably find value in utilising a third party to manage the development and ongoing maintenance of their store. But if you have a bit of a clue and keep your store and theme in good shape, this is probably a great solution for updating to the latest versions. Deserving of 5 stars.

I needed help updating my impulse theme, which has a lot of customizations. I tried the 14-day trial and ran the first update with it. Since the fonts weren't updated and I was very unsure about it, I contacted the support: Corey helped me extensively within a day and even did the update himself! He answered all of my questions in great detail - that's why I'll buy the theme updater app after the end of the trial. BTW: the font problem was a theme problem and is now fixed.

We use the Theme Updater App to regularly update our Archetype Motion theme. Even though we have a couple of Apps installed and some manually added code, the App does a great job. We did run into an issue once, but Cory and the support team jumped in and solved it in no time. We can highly recommend the App and the support team.

I used this app to update my Expanse theme by Archetype and it worked perfectly without any issues. A HUGE time saver.

I was updating from an older 2.0 theme version to the latest 2.0 theme version. If you are not already using a 2.0 version of your theme, this app will not work. Simple.
