2019 JMM Mobile App
The 2019 JMM Mobile App is now available for download on iOS® and AndroidTM devices. It is also available in HTML5 format. There is no charge for this app and it is provided by the AMS and MAA strictly for your convenience and to make your meeting experience as productive and enjoyable as possible.
Note that this app is available to the general public. The JMM does not use the personal data entered into the app for any purpose. Users are responsible for setting their privacy settings within the app appropriately.
Download the App
To download the app, enter www.tripbuildermedia.com/apps/jmm2019 into the browser of your mobile device or snap the QR code below. This link is a universal link and when placed into the web browser of a phone, tablet, or desktop computer, it will recognize what device you are on, and bring you to the appropriate place to access the app. Those of you who are on a laptop, desktop or any other device can type this link into the browser and you will be taken to the HTML5 version of the app. Note that PlayStore lists the app as "2019 Joint Mathematics Meeting."
Note that on your "Settings" icon, you have the ability to opt in/out of: a) adding items from your personal JMM schedule on the app to your phone calendar, and b) push notifications.
Put the Meeting Directly into Your Hands
This app gives you access to the program, posters, exhibits, social events, committee schedules, floor plans, sponsors, speakers, abstracts, and local information.
This year the abstracts have been downloaded to the app in plain TeX code. You can see an abstract for a talk when you click on "About" under that talk. To see the abstract in pdf format on the web, click on the "Abstracts" button (located under a paper clip icon). The app will search the body of an abstract for the term being searched. (See other search options below.)
- Tap the Global Search icon (looks like a magnifier glass at top left-hand corner) on the main screen to find whatever information you are looking for. You can also search in each category; i.e. exhibits (by booth and by name), program, speakers, key words, etc.
- Please note that the Global Search will return results in the program on the individual talk level, while a search in “Program” will first return results on a session level, and you will then need to drill down to the talk level.
- To find out what is happening in a particular room via the Global Search, it's best to be very specific about what you type. If, for example, you are looking to see what is in Room 5B in the Convention Center, type "Room 5B", and you will get everything that is occurring in Room 5B. If you typed just "5B", you will get everything with a "5" in it and probably with a "B" as well. And as mentioned in the second bullet above, searching on the "Program" level will first return results on a session level and you will then have to drill down to the talk level. The Global Search on the main screen is a faster option in this case.
- During the meeting, clicking on the “Now” button in the upper right-hand corner of the Program screen (below the Search icon) will sort to that exact time that you clicked on it. For example: If you were to click on "Now" at 5:00 pm, it will show all sessions going on at 5:00 pm. Other sessions occurring after 5:00 pm may show up under them.
- To search the program by category, click on “Program” and then click on the Filter symbol (looks like a funnel) at the top of the screen. You will be able to view the program by the categories listed. Click on a category and then click “Done”. For example, selecting “AWM” will show only the AWM events on the program.
- To search by subject classification, click on “Search” (looks like a magnifying glass) at the top of the screen, type “-CODE-“, and then click “Search” again. For example, if your code is 05 (Combinatorics), click on “Search”, type “-05-“ in the window, and then click “Search” again.
- Find out who is coming to the meeting by searching on a participant's name or school.
Create A Personal Schedule
- You will be able to build a personal schedule and access it from the web or the device in which you are using the app; i.e. iPad or smart phone. A simple username and password must be created to get started. The sole purpose of this is to give you the functionality to access your schedule across devices.
- The first time you add something to your MySchedule, the app will ask you for permission to access your calendar. If you say yes, it will add everything to your calendar from that point on. This can also be turned on/off at a later date via the Settings icon in the app.
- To Export a .csv version of your schedule, touch “MyEvent.” In the upper right corner of the screen is the word “Export.” You may choose to export MySchedule, MyContacts, MyBooths, MyCity, or MyNotes. After choosing, click “Send”, and an email message will be created with the file attached. Note that choosing talks on the talk level, rather than at the session level, will create a more informative .csv schedule.

- Why is a username and password needed? This is to give you the ability to build a personal schedule and access it from the web or other devices; i.e. iPad or smart phone. A simple username and password must be created to get started. This password will give you the functionality to access your schedule across devices.
