    2. Click on the '+New Application button' to begin the process of creating an App on Square 
    3. Enter an appropriate Application Name and finalize the App's creation by clicking on the blue 'Create Application' button 

    5. You will now be brought into Square's Application dashboard, where you will need to click into your newly created app: "MyWiFi Integration App"(to access its control panel).
