Help!

I can't download the app!?
Is your device connected to the Internet? You must have a working Internet connection to download and install the app.

What's the app store login?
This is specific to you and your personal phone or device; when you set up your smart phone the first time, you would have been asked to set a username (usually your email address) and a password, be it an Apple ID or a Google Play account, so you can purchase and download apps. If you can't remember it, check with your phone/device service provider. If you cannot retrieve your password, please use the web version of the app (using your browser on the device.)

I'm registered for the conference, what is my login?
Check your registration confirmation email for the "Go Mobile" login information, view the login information on your printed conference registration receipt, or login to your conference registration account at https://conf.aeaweb.org to view login information.

My "Go Mobile" login doesn't work?
Be sure that you have entered the token correctly, and be aware that the number "1" may be similar in appearance to the letter "l" and the number "0" may be similar to the letter "O." Contact assa@vanderbilt.edu if you still have trouble.

I don't have an iPhone, iPad, or Android device?
Use the web app by entering http://ativ.me/assa in your browser address bar.

I have an older iPhone, and when I try to install the app, it tells me I must upgrade to iOS version 4.3?
If you are using a 1st or 2nd generation iPhone, you will need to scan the QR code above for the web version of the app, or go to http://ativ.me/assa and use the web version of the app. If you have a 3rd or 4th generation iPhone that needs to be upgraded to iOS 4.3, you can do so by connecting your device to iTunes through your computer. More help on how to update a device is available at http://support.apple.com/kb/HT4623

I have entered the web app URL but it's not opening a web app page?
Be sure to type the URL in the browser address bar, not the Google search field.
