The first box (*Sending push notifications*) when you create a new
application is a snippet of code to you use in you backend (using our
sender API) to send a message to UPS and it delivery to the devices like
it. The second box (*Registering installations*) when you create a
variant is a snippet of code to you use in you mobile app to register you
device in that application like it
Ah, ok. I now think that the provide text/headers and icons for the two
different boxes are perhaps not good enough. Andres, would it make sense to
be more explicit there? I think some of what passos wrote could be perhaps
baked into the boxes, right ?
