How to import scala tuning files into Z3ta+ (Zeta) for iPad

Z3ta+ downloads with a number of alternate tunings. Of course it won’t have your latest tuning or inexplicably developers leave out traditional equal tunings like 17, 19, 22, 31 notes to the octave. And it isn’t obvious how to add new tunings to the application. So what follows is a step by step.
