*If you experience issues with the My Oceanside app, here's how to fix:

For both iPhone and Android: an updated version 4.3.0 is now available. Please upgrade from the Apple or Google Play app store.

For Android: if you are an existing user, you will need to completely uninstall the app before upgrading (the app leaves behind cached data):
   1. Go to Settings > General
   2. Select “Apps & notifications,” “Application Manager,” or “Apps,” depending on your version of Android
   3. Tap App Info
   4. Select My Oceanside and tap Storage
   5. Select “Clear data” and/or “Clear cache.” There may also be a “Manage data” option to clear additional data. 

Now you can Uninstall to prepare your phone for the upgrade.
