    Hi,

    The current upgrade is for those who have bought the B4A book.
    We did previously offer a free upgrade for those who bought the Basic4Android book, but, as you say, this offer has now expired.

    I paid both, not free upgrade...
    But the second edition was very good, so, pretty happy to spend my money.

    The new edition actually has many improvements so it's worth getting.
    I'm happy to let you upgrade free. Please email a copy of your receipt for the B4A book to
    b4a@pennypress.co.uk

    Phil,

    It should be great, if you continue the B4X saga:

    B4I and B4J, your next 2 books....

    Yes, I agree with you, but unfortunately we don't have the time to write them at the moment.

    Hello Phil,

    I have purchased the Amazon Kindle version earlier, but when I go to "Manage your Kindle Content" some of my other e-books have the "Update" button available, however, your book has no "Update" button and I can still see the 2013 version in my library.
    How do I upgrade to the latest version??

    Thanks

    It depends whether you bought the old version of the book (Basic4Android) or the new version (B4A) which covers version 5.20.
    The B4A book should be automatically updated on Kindle. The Basic4Android book, which covered version 4, is no longer being updated since it has been superceeded by the new book.
    Hope this clarifies the situation.
