Edit Social Posting Settings on MapMyRun on iPhone 6
Edited by Freya, Crystal, Eng, Anonymous
You're watching VisiHow. Today I'm going to show you how you can edit the social posting settings on the MapMyRun application on the iPhone 6.
To begin, we need to unlock our phone by pressing the Lock button on the side or the Home button at the bottom.
Swipe and we can enter our passcode or use our fingerprint scanner.
At our home screen, we need to find this blue and white icon here.
We tap it once to open up MapMyRun. It will automatically take us to the "Record a Workout" page where we can start automatically.
We need these three horizontal white lines in the top left-hand corner.
When we tap on that, it brings up this menu where we can scroll down to the bottom.
Find "Settings", which is second from last.
It's indicated by a cog on the left-hand side. Tap "Settings" to open up different options here. In different videos, I've talked us through these first two sections.
Scroll until we find "Social Posting", which is the third section.
We'll have the option to post by Twitter and by Facebook. I've actually logged in to MapMyRun using Facebook. That automatically gives the application access. However, with Twitter, I haven't.
We have to sign in with Twitter or enable access on our settings.
Then we can automatically add the details here to "Post On Start", "Post Progress", and "Post a Message".
We'll try it on the Facebook one here.
We can enable "Post On Start" if we want people to know we're running. We see that's enabled when it's blue, then we tap again on the bubble to disable.
Tap "Post in Progress", to either enable or disable it.
After tapping "Post Interval Type", we have the option to choose "Time" or "Distance". We can just select one and post the interval time as well. We can scroll through to whichever one suits us.
We don't need to press save, we just go back to "Post in Progress", using the Back arrow at the top left-hand corner of the screen.
It will take us back to "Facebook Settings".
We can edit anything else here.
It gives us the option to change our post message as well just by typing in this text box.
When we're happy with everything there, we just press "Done" and that saves the new settings here.
Same goes for Twitter. We will learn very quickly now, going in our settings, how we can enable access to Twitter.
Press the Home button to return to the home screen.
We need to find the gray icon here with the cog in the center, which I'm sure you will recognize.
Then we scroll down until we find Twitter, which will be towards the end because it's in alphabetical order.
Tap on Twitter and then we can see down at the bottom, "ALLOW THESE APPS TO USE YOUR ACCOUNT".
We can enable MapMyRun, or disable it if we don't want it to be there.
We can go back to the home screen and find our MapMyRun icon again.
Go back to our three horizontal lines and tap "Record a Workout" and it will take us back to the screen where we began.
If an advertisement appears, just press the 'X' and it takes us back to where we started.
