Additional Mobile App Update FAQ’s
When can I update my app?
The initial update was made available on March 2, 2017. Our Y Mobile App is constantly improving to meet your needs, so updated features and improvements will continue to be released.
How do I update my app?
If you have your device set for automatic updates, you won’t need to do anything, it will update to the new and improved version for you! If you do not have your device set up for automatic updates, you’ll need to update your app manually:
- iPhone: Open the iTunes App Store, tap the Updates icon at the bottom of the screen, find the Saratoga Regional YMCA app and touch Update.

How do I opt-in to receive notifications?
There are two ways to opt-in to get important association wide updates (emergency facility closings as well as upcoming holiday closings, changes in facility hours and facility closings due scheduled maintenance):
Upon initial download: Say “OK” to Push Notifications when you first open your app after downloading.
After initial download: If you didn’t initially opt-in when you first downloaded our app, you’ll need to go to your device settings to opt-in first.
