This message requests that you:

  • Enter the installation code (only when Boond isn't the editor of the App). For the majority of apps, there are no codes necessary.
  • Confirm that you authorize the app to have access to/edit your BoondManager data (the app will only edit the data that you choose to edit).

Once you have clicked on Confirm, the app will be installed on your interface and you will now find the following icons:
