Parental Controls
If you see the app in the app store but you cannot download, check if you may have parental controls turned on. Some apps are set to 17+ because the apps may contain frequent medical images.

Device Language Setting
Hebrew (Android): Because of the right to left formatting of the Hebrew language, Android is not compatible with devices set to Hebrew. Please change to English or use the web app version from your event organizers.

“Already Installed ” Message in Google Play
When you go to the Google Play store (from a web browser) and it shows “already installed” but you can’t find the app on your device / download files / app files:
Go to Applications > Settings > Apps > Google Play > check to make sure it’s set to “enabled” and not “disabled.” Once you enable the Google Play app, the event app should be available on your device.

Some events have very large data sets that are received whenever the app has access to the internet. To only use the app with Wi-Fi and not impact your cellular data plan quota, simply apply the following settings:

Settings App > Cellular > scroll to find the app > set the toggle for using cellular data to OFF. To further avoid using cellular data, ensure to turn off Wi-Fi Assist.

Settings App > Mobile Data > Open the app under Data Usage Stats > set the Background Data toggle to OFF.

Steps to access these settings may vary depending on your OS version.
