TAPS Events Mobile App

TAPS provides a mobile app for all national and regional seminars. The TAPS Events app puts advance details about the seminar right in the palm of your hand. You can connect with fellow survivors and get logistic updates and reminders during the event. This interactive tool will allow you to share stories and experiences, engage with TAPS through our social networks and post pictures of your favorite TAPS family events and activities — all in one place.

How to Download the App

Event Mobile App Cover Screen Shot

The app is available on iOS and Android devices and can be downloaded in the App Store and Google Play store by searching “TAPS Events & Programs." The app will move up in rankings as more people search for it, but if you don't see it at the top of your search results, just scroll down and look for TAPS Events. 


Security Verification & Access

The system has a two-step security verification, which requires an individual email and password for each adult user. The password is unique to each event and the first password you are assigned will be your password going forward regardless of how many future events you attend.  For newly registered attendees attending the 2018 Fort Hood Seminar, the password is "taps2018". 

Survivors who did not provide an individual email at registration, presenters or special guests can request access to the app by completing this short access request form. For further assistance with the mobile app, contact appsupport@taps.org or visit the Help Desk on site at the event.


What’s my Username & Password

Your username is the email you used to register. If you previously downloaded the app for another event, you will continue to use the first password you were assigned. If you forgot your password, email appsupport@taps.org for assistance. 


Getting Started

Event Mobile App Screen Shot

Once you’ve downloaded the TAPS Event app, you’ll see a list of events for which you are registered and authorized to access. Select the seminar you are currently attending.  If you are a new app user, you will be prompted to enter your email and password to gain access to the event information. 


Setting Up Your Profile

You can immediately set up your profile (click top left corner), add a photo and link your social media accounts. Our social feeds for comments using #hopehelpheal, #gratefulnation and #tapsfam will pull directly into the mobile app and users can post from the app directly to their social media accounts.


How do I access info about other TAPS events I attend?

There is also an event app for each National and Regional event that puts the event schedule, speaker info and workshop detail right at your fingertips. Those can be found under the "More" menu at the bottom right.   


How long will the app be live?

Each event app is “LIVE” for one year after the event and you can continue to connect and offer support to survivors and each other via the event’s activity feed long after we’ve all returned home. 


Have a competitive spirit?

The app also recognizes super users and influencers who help connect survivors to each other and to resources at the event on the Leaderboard.  If you have a competitive spirit, check out the leaderboard for your progress.
