Configuring the Basic-5 version of the apps

When you use the app for the first time, you have to configure the app with an email. The E-Type of the apps do not require configuration with an email.

Here are step-by-step sequences for the email configuration of the Basic-5 version of a Mild Tap app. Mild Tap Traffic/Congestion Alert app was chosen as an example.

1. First screen is for data input.

2. When you press the "Next" button from the first screen, you will see the "Configuration Screen" with blanks to fill.

3. The default options for the configuration the Mild Tap Apps. are 3 webmail providers; AOL, Google (Gmail) and Microsoft (Hotmail). These companies offer unrestricted access to their mail service and we encourage you to setup an email account with one of them.

4. After entering the relevant information, tap the "Next" button. If there is an error in the data or if there no connection to the internet, you will receive a message saying that, "The configuration was not successful." Once the email has been correctly configured, you will receive a notification, in your email, informing you of this.

5. Next time you start from the first screen of the app, the configuration page will not appear.

6. To change the email settings at a later time, use the "settings" icon on the contacts page.
