If you have already downloaded and installed a previous version of PoGo-UWP and want to update to 1.0.8, you will need to uninstall the app from your phone by long-pressing and selecting uninstall from the app list. Then, download the latest files from the link below, and follow the steps in our How To article to install the new version. (You also try to just redeploy the new appx file and overwrite the existing one. You do not need to reinstall the dependencies if you go this route).
