Registration includes access to the course presentations via the meeting app (available as both a mobile app and online). With the app, participants will have full access to all available slide presentations for each course for which they have registered. The app also contains a fully searchable schedule of events, list of program participants, abstracts, exhibitor information, and more. (NOTE: No printed syllabus materials or USBs will be available.)
Information on how to access the app, from both Apple and Android app stores, will be e-mailed to all registrants shortly before the meeting. The ACG 2020 meeting app will be available within the ACG Mobile App.
PLEASE NOTE: The app is supported on a variety of mobile platforms, however, for best results, users should ensure their mobile device’s operating system is 6.0 or later for Android, and 10.0 or later for iOS. Attendees should avoid using the app on the following devices: iPad 2, any non-retina devices, and Kindles with an OS older than 4.4.2.

To create a list of your favorite presentations, select the “Schedule” tile from the main screen, then filter by selecting from one of the “Browse By” options.

Presentations can also be downloaded individually through the “Schedule” title, and if slides are available, you will see an image of that presentation’s first slide. Tapping the slide itself or the “View Slides” button will then bring up a new screen allowing you to scroll through each slide in the presentation.
You need to download presentation slides in order to view them within the app and in order to take notes (see below). (A Wi-Fi or cellular data connection is required to download presentation files as well as any PDF documents.)

How do I take notes or draw on presentation slides?

Select “View Slides,” then “Notes.” Use the “Notes” mode to type notes adjacent to the slide. To return to the full slide view, select “Nav.” Notes are automatically saved. Use the “Pen” to draw directly on the slide and the “Marker” to highlight areas of the slide.
How do I take notes when there are no slides?
Use “Schedule” to navigate to a presentation. Select “Take Notes,” then select the “Notes” mode to type notes adjacent to the blank slide. To return to the full view, select “Nav.” Notes are automatically saved.
How do I print or save the notes that I have taken?
Select “My Notes” to launch your personal summary web page (a Wi-Fi or cellular data connection is required), or email yourself the link by selecting the “E-Mail My Notes” tile from the main screen. Within the “My Notes” tile, select “Presentation Notes” to see the titles of presentations you have taken notes on. Select a title to view your notes and annotations for that title and “Print” to print either all of the presentation slides or just the slides for which you have taken notes. Computer users with Adobe Acrobat Pro installed and users with Apple computers have the option to print to PDF.
