Follow these steps to install a beta version of the Register App on your iPad.

1. On your iPad's home screen, tap App Store.

2. Install TestFlight.

Within the App Store, search for "testflight", tap the GET button, and then Install. Depending on your security settings, you may be prompted to enter your Apple ID password.

3. Open the TestFlight app, accept the terms and conditions, and allow notifications.

When you see the prompt "'Test Flight' Would Like to Send You Notifications", tap Allow. This way, the iPad will alert you when new beta versions are available, and also when your beta version has expired.

If your beta version expires, you'll be unable to use the Green Bits app until you either install a newer beta through TestFlight, or revert to the regular, non-beta version of Green Bits.

4. Register for beta access.

Go to our beta registration page and enter your name and your Apple ID email address, then click Get Beta Access.

5. Check your Apple ID email.

Check the inbox for your Apple ID email address and find a message with the subject "Green Bits Inc. has invited you to test 'Green Bits Register'".

If viewing this email on your iPad, click View in TestFlight and you'll be automatically redirected to the TestFlight app for the next step.

If viewing this email your computer, phone, or any other device, click the link to view your Redemption Code.

6. Install the beta.

After tapping View In TestFlight on your iPad, you'll be automatically directed back to the TestFlight app. Or, if you opened the email in step 5 on another device, open TestFlight on the iPad, tap Redeem in the upper right, and enter your code.

Tap ACCEPT, and then INSTALL. If you see the message below, tap Install to replace the current app version with the test version. No data will be lost.

Once the installation is complete, open Green Bits and you're ready to go!

7. Install on additional iPads if necessary.

Install TestFlight on each additional iPad. Once you've activated TestFlight on your first iPad, the app will be automatically activated on each additional iPad as long as they are all logged into the same Apple ID (see Settings > iTunes & App Store).

Once you've installed and opened TestFlight, tap ACCEPT and INSTALL Green Bits beta, as in Step 6.

8. Keep beta apps up to date.

Each beta version is only available for 90 days since its release, and the TestFlight app will tell you how many days until your current version expires. Once expired, you'll be unable to access the Green Bits app. If you notice that your beta version will expire soon, or you receive a notification that your beta version has already expired, open TestFlight and you'll see newer available beta versions on the left side. Tap Update to get the latest version. Or, uninstall the beta version and revert to the regular non-beta Register app, which is always available to download and update from the App Store.
