If you have a prior version installed on your iPad install the OTES Update by tapping the following link:

Tap to Install the OTES Update
This update will only update the OTES_otg file on your iPad. A new backup bk_OTES_otg file will also be created on your iPad (if you have an old bk_OTES_otg file, it will be replaced.
Do not run this update if you have been using the bk_OTES_otg file to enter data). Only run this update if you have been using a file named OTES_otg to enter data. Data from the old file will transfer to the updated file. You must also have FileMaker Go 13 installed to use this update. If you only have FileMaker Go 12 installed on your iPad, you will need to install FileMaker Go 13 to your iPad. You will also need to move the OTES_otg file from FileMaker Go 12 to FileMaker Go 13. You can do this my using iTunes to copy the OTES_otg file from your FileMaker Go 12 folder to your computer and then copy it from your computer to the FileMaker Go 13 folder. After completing this, you can then run the update. Once the update is ran, do not continue to use the FileMaker Go 12 version. The FileMaker Go 12 icon has a blue/purple background and FileMaker Go 13 has a white background.

Here are a couple links on how to use iTunes to transfer files:
