    Once the phone has been unlocked, we will see the Home screen, and at the bottom of the screen, we will see several icons.
    This is the area we need to focus on because we need to open the Applications folder.

    It has a grid of white dots, and this is the icon for the Applications folder.

    In this example, it is located at the top of the screen.

  8. 8
    Press down on "Maps", and it will open up the Google Maps application.
    We want to add our home and work addresses to the application. Since these two locations are very important for us, and we probably spend quite a bit of time at each one, it may be quite common for us to need directions to and from one of these addresses to other locations. Adding our work and home addresses to Google Maps helps us to access those locations very quickly.
