For many of us (myself included!), it can feel like we never have enough time to get everything done. When you're rushing from one thing to the next, or when you spend most of the day away from your computer, it can be tough to find the time to register for events or contact fellow members of your organization.

Luckily, if you use a smartphone or other mobile device you can now quickly keep in touch with your organization wherever you are, with the Wild Apricot for Members App.

You can use the app to view your profile, register and pay for events, search the member directory, contact other members, and much more. Plus it’s free, and it's now available on both Android and iOS.

Starting to use a new mobile app can be intimidating, so we’ve made sure you can get things done with just a few clicks. Below are three things you can do with the app that all take under 30 seconds.

But first, get started by downloading the app. You can click the buttons below, or search for "Wild Apricot" in your device's app store.

1. Register for an event

  • Tap on an event in the list to display the details of that event.
     
  • Tap the Register button next to the appropriate registration type to bring up the registration form.

  • Once you complete the form and tap Continue, you will be taken to the Review and confirm page, where payment options will appear. Depending on the payment method chosen when the event was set up, you might see Invoice me and/or Pay online buttons.
