Monte has a tool that integrates with testApp, which lets me notify my
users of updates.  Then I give the users a certain period of time before
the app locks them out if they don't update.

On the first day, God created the heavens and the Earth
On the second day, God created the oceans.
On the third day, God put the animals on hold for a few hours,
   and did a little diving.
And God said, "This is good."
