I am using Android 5.1 on my phone. It shows "This app is incompatible with your device."

Hi Md. Forhad,

 

I can confirm the information Syed shared, the Upwork for Freelancers Android app requires an Android 6+ device.

The new application is nice and includes many features which were missing from the previous app. However it is too heavy and too slow therefore for the time being I will stick with the old app, at least for browsing potential jobs. Hope the new app will be improved with the next updates and will become faster....... Fyg, I have tried it on Huawei P9 Lite with 3 gb RAM and Anrdroid 7.

I have been waiting for this great app since long time. However, I can see that app is so slow and it takes much time like its just opening the URLs in browser.

 

Please improve the speed of the app.

Ever helpful, Upwork notified me when I opened the Upwork app on my Samsung phone today that "You're using an outdated app." So I had two choices: "Download Now" or "Maybe Later."

 

Never putting off for tomorrow what I can do today, I downloaded now. What I got was a much more robust app that provides more information and allows me to do more from my phone than was previously case. Well done, Upwork!

 

Unfortunately, what I also got was an app that tells me, every time I invoke it, that the version I am using is outdated and I have the same two choices. Even shutting down the phone and restarting doesn't convince this new version that it actually is the newest version.

 

C'mon, Upwork. You were thiiiiiiiiiiiis close.

Hi, Riri.

 

Thank you for your follow-up.

 

I will hold off doing anything with the installed app until someone from Upwork comes back to me.

Hi, Riri.

 

A couple of days ago I deleted the version of the Upwork app on my phone and replaced it with the version recommended to me by your colleague Sandy.

 

Everything seems to be working fine now. I really like the upgrade.

 

Thanks for your help.

 

Will
