IMPORTANT NOTE: If you plan to use the app on two of your mobile devices, it's important to set up the multi-device sync within the app on both devices. (See tip sheet for more details.)
Also, if you find the app is slow to launch, you may bypass the update by simply tapping the back arrow on Android or the cancel button on iOS devices to immediately get to the dashboard. Update times during app launch vary by device, connection strength and also depend on when you last did a full update. Remember, this is a large meeting with 6,600 abstracts, 1,700 sessions and 8,500 attendees! Make sure you try to update at least once a day to capture any changes, such as session updates, newly added attendees, etc. If your refresh button turns red, it’s time to update.
