Before Bindo, Part III - Preparing iPad Apps

If you're reading this, hopefully you've already setup your iPad and optimized its Settings... now let's talk apps.

In order to get the most from your Bindo experience, you'll want to add an e-mail address to your iPad's Mail app (for exporting sales reports), download the Ookla Speedtest app (for any future troubleshooting), and of course, download the Bindo POS app. Let's look at how to do those things in a little more detail:

1

 Add your e-mail address to the Mail app

      Note: Be sure to use an e-mail address that you're comfortable giving everyone access to - anyone using the iPad will be able to send and receive mail from this account.
    • From the iPad home screen, open the Mail app - the icon looks like this: 
    • Tap your e-mail provider, fill in your login information, then tap Next.
    • Depending on your e-mail provider, you'll see a series of switches related to other services (Contacts, Calendars, Notes, etc.) These are not used by Bindo. It's up to you whether you'd like to import them. (If you're not technologically savvy and/or the thought of making that choice by yourself is stressful, turn them off.) Then tap Save.

 Download the Ookla Speedtest app

    • From the iPad home screen, open the App Store app - the icon looks like this: 
    • Tap the Search area in the upper right hand corner and search for Ookla. Only one result should appear, tap it.
    • Tap Get (or the cloud icon if you've downloaded it before), then Install. If prompted, enter your Apple ID password, then choose OK

 Download Bindo POS

    • In the App Store app, tap the Search area in the upper right hand corner and search for Bindo. Only one result should appear, tap it.
    • Tap Get (or the cloud icon if you've downloaded it before), then Install. If prompted, enter your Apple ID password, then choose OK

Congratulations - you're now ready to use Bindo like a pro!
