Logging Into Your Mobile App Account
The SwimTopia mobile app is a companion app to your team's SwimTopia website. If you have a login to your team's website, you'll use the same login credentials for the SwimTopia mobile app:
Are you a registered member of a team that uses the SwimTopia team management solution as their team website?
If you have activated your account on your team's website by setting up a password, then all you need to do is log in to the SwimTopia mobile app using the SAME email/password that you use on your team website.
➞ See Account Activation, Login and Password Management if you need help.
➧ NO/NOT SURE
Go to YOUR team website (either teamname.swimtopia.com or possibly a custom URL for the team -- but NOT www.swimtopia.com) and see if you can log in there. If you cannot, then you either need to register with your team on the team website, or access the meet in the SwimTopia mobile app as a Guest User.
➞ See the Guest Mode Access section below for more details.

Guest Mode Access
(Available for meets using SwimTopia's Meet Maestro...ask your computer rep if unsure)
SwimTopia Mobile's Guest Mode allows meet spectators without SwimTopia logins to use the app so they can search for upcoming or past meets and follow their favorite athlete's throughout the meet from anywhere!
>>Note: This access is also useful for your athletes who want to keep track of their progress thru the meet on their phones and do not have a log in on your team site. (if you're using Meet Maestro to run the meet)
With a Pro Subscription, guest users can designate their athlete favorites, access heat sheets, follow the progress of the meet if the team is using the Live Event/Heat bar, and view live results and scores.
Without Pro, guests will still be able to follow along as the meet progresses if the team is using the Live Event/Heat bar, but will only see results once the meet has completed.
Guests will be prompted to upgrade to Pro if they attempt to access screens beyond the Meet Overview. They can try Pro for FREE for 7 days, then upgrade to Pro for $2.49/mo or $9.99/yr
>>Note: For a meet to show up in the Public Meet Search, the meet must be using SwimTopia's Meet Maestro meet management software AND the “Public Meet Search” option must be explicitly enabled by a team admin under the Mobile App settings in Meet Maestro (disabled by default).
NOT FINDING WHAT YOU'RE LOOKING FOR? - This message displays at the bottom of the screen to provide a possible reason when a meet is not coming up in the search.
<<Tip: We suggest that once you log into the mobile app via Guest Mode, don't log out. When you log in via Guest Mode, a "token" is associated with you to remember who your Favorite swimmers are. As long as you don't log out of the mobile app, the app will remember your favorites, and you can continue to see their history over time. But if you do log out of the app, the token is no longer associated with you to remember your favorites. The next time you try to use the app, you would have to log in as a guest again, and then re-favorite your swimmers.
