Last September, the AAFS Member Mobile launched and due to it’s success and integration into the AAFS Annual Scientific Meeting, we were able to collect some great feedback from all of you! In order to accommodate the demand in feature requests and create a better future for mobile technology at AAFS, we decided to migrate to a web-based technology. Next month, we will be retiring our apps from the app stores in which they were distributed. In order to access the AAFS Web Application, simply navigate to https://webdata.aafs.org/mobile and follow the on-screen instructions. This means that the AAFS App is capable of being run on any device with a web browser: Android®, iOS®, and Blackberry®. Some features, such as the directory and committee search, are accessible and functional on Kindle® and Nook® devices with a web browser.

New features:

  • Extended device support
  • Download contact cards
  • Job posting search and email listings to yourself
