AOAConnect mobile app now available

March 9, 2012

The new AOAConnect mobile app is now available for BlackBerry, Android, iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch. The app will let you search, find and connect with other members, receive the latest professional news and view events, all from your smartphone or mobile device.

The app is pre-populated with all of your contact information to save you set-up time. Features include:

  • Directory – With the mobile app, you can quickly access your AOA colleagues. Search the directory by first name, last name or practice name. Click a member’s phone number to direct dial; click the e-mail address to instantly send e-mail; or click the street address to map location.
  • News – Read the latest AOA, affiliate and industry headlines; view the most recent postings in Optometry’s Career Center®, follow the AOA Twitter stream, read recent blog postings, and access documents posted to the AOAConnect Resource library.
  • Events – View upcoming AOA and affiliate events right from the mobile app.
  • Discussions – Collaborate with your fellow AOA members directly from your device! All of your AOAConnect eGroups are available via the mobile app. After you initially log in to AOAConnect, you can post new messages, reply to another member’s messages or simply follow the discussions. (If you primarily participate in eGroups via the mobile app, you may want to change your subscription settings on AOAConnect to “No Emails” so you don’t also receive postings via e-mail.)
  • Messages – View your direct messages from fellow members.
  • Contacts – Save your contacts directly to your mobile address book. Contact information is automatically updated.

Download now! Go to your app store to download. Be sure to search specifically for “AOAConnect” in your app store’s search box, not just “AOA.”
