The 25th APS Annual Convention is fast approaching! Download our mobile app, and stay connected with up-to-date convention information at your fingertips.
The App is available on iPhone, iPad, and Android. Once downloaded, no Internet connectivity is required, though updates do require an Internet connection, which APS is providing free at the Convention.
You can search for “APS2013″ in your phone’s App Store or direct your device’s browser here.
Don’t have a smart phone or tablet? No problem! Use the web version of the App.
Once you’ve downloaded the App, here’s how to use it:
Manage Your Schedule
To view your schedule, just tap on the “Schedule” icon in the menu at the bottom of your screen.
To add an item to your agenda, go to “Home” (bottom left) and tap “Manage Your Schedule”.
*Note: You can also browse by day and by track, by going to “Home” and tapping “Browse Sessions by Day” or “Browse Sessions by Track” in the menu.
The menu at the very top of your screen allows you to choose the day you would like to view. Once you’ve selected a day, tap on the session you’re interested in (Morning Sessions, Afternoon Sessions, Keynote Address/Opening Ceremony, Poster Sessions).
Once you find an item you would like to add to your schedule, tap it.
At the top, you will see several icons. Here is what they mean:
*Note: To delete an item from your schedule, just tap the calendar icon again and a green “+” sign should appear, indicating that this item will no longer appear on your schedule.
*Note: Email your notes to yourself (or others) by selecting “Email Notes” from the “More Tab” (bottom right). You can also email your entire schedule to yourself by going to “Home”, “Build Your Schedule” and tapping the drop down menu at the very top of your screen. You will see the option “Email Schedule”.
For information on convention exhibitors, go to “Home” (bottom left) and tap “Browse Exhibitors”.
Once you have selected an exhibitor, you will see several icons. Here is what they mean:
This icon allows you to email the exhibitor.
This icon sends you to the exhibitor’s website.
This allows you to search the entire convention program by major event/category.
To search for a particular poster or poster session, tap the “Program” icon on the bottom of your screen. Then tap “Poster”. From there, you will be able to search for Poster Sessions by day. Once you find the particular day you’re interested in, tap on each “Poster Session” to view a list of posters being presented at that time.
