    Default Sideload updates

    I typically uninstall a sideloaded app and then install the update. Is this necessary or will the updates load on top of the prior version?

    In some cases, when you uninstall an app and then update it, sometimes it doesn't work. The best way to do it, is to just update it, sometimes the old file is overwritten and sometimes a duplicate is made. The benefits of this, is if the new version is incompatible with OS2, you can just delete it and still use the old one. Some games up your save files if you uninstall or even upgrade.
