Are ASCO's apps free, or will I have to pay to download them?
All of the apps ASCO offers are free to download, however several of them require either a subscription or ASCO membership in order to access their content.
Which apps require a subscription or ASCO membership?
The iMeeting app requires a Virtual Meeting subscription, which can be purchased in the ASCO Store. The iDirectory app requires ASCO membership. All others are free to access, however the iPlanner app does require users to sign in with an ASCO.org username and password (registration is free for non-members) if they wish to sync it with the ePlanner.
How do I download the app I want?
You can find links to the various applications on the Mobile Apps page. You can also find apps supported on your mobile device directly by accessing the Apple App Store or the Android Play Store and searching for "ASCO".

My app isn't loading properly. How can I fix it?
There are a number of reasons why your app may not be loading properly and, as such, a number of possible solutions.
Out-of-Date Operating System: Please ensure your mobile device is updated to the most recent operating system in order to access all of ASCO's apps. Find a list of the operating systems supported by ASCO for each of its apps above.
Connection Issues: If you are connecting to ASCO apps via WiFi, please be aware that the strength of a wireless signal can impact performance, particularly with streaming videos. Firewalls or other settings put in place by a network administrator can also impede access and are common at medical and academic institutions.
Crashing or Freezing: Memory overload – often caused by running multiple programs or apps at the same time – can cause apps to malfunction. ASCO recommends a number of possible fixes should your apps crash or freeze, including, killing the app, restarting your mobile device, and uninstalling and reinstalling the app. Please note that with Apple devices running iOS, simply closing out an app may not be enough to kill the app. You may need to double click the home button and click the minus button next to the app to kill it.
I cannot find the menu button in my Android device.
To use the menu button on your Android device, you must touch and hold the app switch button (a.k.a. recent apps button).
Can I get any of this content on my mobile device, even if I don't have one of the devices above?
Yes. A subscription to Meeting Podcasts provides access to the same content that is contained in iMeeting. Meeting audio and video podcasts can be synced with any device that supports mp3 and mp4 formats.
I still need further assistance or I have a different question. Who can I contact?
