I already own the goop City Guides app, how do I get the London and Los Angeles guides?

If you already own the goop City guides app, you will need to run the latest update via the App Store to activate the London and Los Angeles guides on your bookshelf. Please note you will need 3G/WiFi connection to do this.

How do I run updates for my app?

To run an update from your device (iPhone or iPad), click on the App Store icon and then ‘updates’ in the bottom right hand corner. To update on your desktop computer from your iTunes account, click on the Apps link under Library in the left hand navigation. Click on the ‘Available Updates’ link in the bottom right hand corner and then the ‘Download all Free Updates’ icon in the top right corner. You will need to be on WiFi or 3G connection.

What if the Los Angeles guide doesn’t load?

If you experience that the Los Angeles guide doesn’t load on your bookshelf after you have updated, please delete the app from your device (press and hold on the goop icon until it wiggles. Tap the ‘x’ in the top left corner and then tap the ‘Delete’ button). Once removed, re-install it from the App Store (don’t worry, you won’t be charged again) on a 3G/WiFi connection. This should now activate the LA guide.

My app crashes when I open it.

I can’t see some of the images in my city guide.

To enrich your guide, we have included lots of beautiful images of all of goop’s recommendations and favorite spots. The main image for each recommendation will download when you first view it and will then store within the app. You will need to have 3G or WiFi connection for the image to download so make sure you have good connection.
