A poor connection to WiFi is the number one cause for app performance issues, so the first step in troubleshooting is to verify that you're connected to WiFi and have a strong signal.
Oftentimes with hotel/conference center WiFi you'll need to connect to the signal and also need to log in through a webpage. To do so, connect to the signal and then open a web browser on the device and you should be automatically prompted to log in.

After following the instructions provided, you will be prompted to enter your new password. After submitting the new login information, you’ll be all set to download the app.
