    About Beta

    This is a BETA version of the Swift App which means we're still working on a few things. If you have an older device you may experience some slower loading times.

    For Swift customers, account switching is not available yet within the Swift App.

    Purchases made for any child linked accounts will not be valid in the Swift App. For now, please continue to buy those products and manage your account online.

    If you would like to set up a child account, you can still do this online.
