The Reception app is no longer supported and will be deprecated by mid-2022. To keep the same functionality (and gain some!), upgrade to the Boulevard Duo iPad app. The Duo app works with or without Duo card reader. To use the Duo app, your iPad must be able to run iOS 13+.

See how to set up the Duo app without a Duo card reader here.


Using the Boulevard Reception app, you'll never have to ask a client if they would like to add gratuity. Clients can add tip and sign their name, all within the app. It is recommended to use an Apple Pencil or similar accessory. Please see the Supported Hardware article for links to recommended products.
