Most iPads are set by default to not download apps that are optimized for iPhones. This is because they are set for a smaller screen with different dimensions and sometimes that looks bad on an iPad. This HAPS 2016 app works just fine on an iPad, though, so go ahead and use it!
1) Go to the app store on your iPad
2) Search for "HAPS 2016"
3) You will get a message that "There are no results for "HAPS 2016".
4) In the upper left corner there is a drop down that says "iPad Only" - choose that and change it to "iPhone Only"
5) Choose the app and download as normal. Then go have fun at the HAPS 2016 Annual Conference!
