  1. 1
    To begin, we should unlock our phone which we can do by pressing the lock button on the right-hand side of the handset, or by pressing the big round button at the bottom of the screen called the Home button.

    Next is just a case of finding the MyFitnessPal application.
    In this case, the app is here in a folder because the phone is personalized. You can see the icon itself is a blue icon with what looks like a person jumping in white. The top left-hand corner is gray with a small dumbbell symbol as well.
