  4. 4
    We enter our passcode or just press our finger onto the home button, which doubles as a fingerprint scanner if we have that option enabled.
    The home screen will be shown.

  5. 5
    We should locate the Airbnb icon.
    Home screens can be different. In this example, the home screen is personalized with a custom background. Everything is kept in folders. Airbnb is in the "Travel" folder. The icon itself is a hot-pink- or coral-colored square with an upside-down linear love heart or triangle inside.

  6. 6
    We just tap the Airbnb icon once to open the application.
    The default screen will be shown, where Airbnb will be offering the most popular destinations with some really nice images as well.

  8. 8
    The next is the magnifying glass icon that we should tap.
    This is how we search for more specific locations or something, maybe, more obscure. There is another tutorial on VisiHow with steps on how to search by using the magnifying glass icon.

    Tap the top option, which is "Current Location" with a little arrow on the right-hand side.
    It may come up with an error if our current location is not enabled in the settings.

    We need to press "While Using the App".
    A little blue tick will appear on the right-hand side. This means that as soon as we have the application open, it will be able to find our current location. Otherwise, it will not try to. It's done now. The blue tick is here. We don't need to press "Save" anywhere.
