Monte has a tool that integrates with testApp, which lets me notify my

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."
