Settle Up 3.6 (ad supported), updated on Nov 19, 2011.

Problem: can't turn just created group online on version 3.6, getting an error message saying that this group was created before the 2.0 update.

How to reproduce:

1) Create a new offline group with two people.
2) Click on the sync button (the one with two arrows in a circle).

Error message shows that online sharing can't be enabled because the group was created before the 2.0 update.

I just tried that and it works for me. Can you try again? What phone do you have? Does sharing from the create group screen work?

Samsung Galaxy Ace running Android 2.3.4.

I just tried sharing from the create group and got a message requesting my permission for the app to access my Google account. I accepted and then a shared group was created. I deleted the group and started again, creating a new group and only sharing after it was created, and this time it worked.

So the real problems is that sharing a group already created only works if you have started a shared group before (and then enabled access to your Google account). If you never created a shared group before and then never was requested access to you Google account, then the error message is misleading.

Ok, that might be the issue. It's just really hard for me to test, because even when I uninstall the app phone remembers that I granted permission to the Google Account and doesn't ask again. I will look into it when I will work on next version.

Hi, I just released new version which simplifies groups sharing a lot. Can you please verify your problem is still there or not?
