How do I install on an iPad?

To install on an iPad, in the app store change the drop-down choice from “iPad Only” to “iPhone Only.” The TPT app will then show up in the store. (That is correct: Select “iPhone Only” to install on the iPad.”

How do I set notifications?

In the app, select “settings” (the gear icon) and “Choose tip reminder settings,” either on or off. Then select the time of day you wish to have the daily tip sent to you, then “Save”. You will get three acknowledgments. The time display will remain on the current time, although your notification will be sent at the time you selected.

In the iPhone you have several options, including Sounds, Banners (which appear at the top of the screen momentarily, then go away) or Alerts (which remain until you proceed). Of course you don’t need to wait for the notification; you can access the daily tip at any time, as well as the last five tips, by opening the app.
