It is a blue square with a white circle and a white letter "A". It is also labeled "App Store". Give one press on the App Store icon and this will open up the Apple App Store. In the App Store, we will find a wide selection of games. However, in order to find the game we're looking for, we're going to need to search.
On the bottom of the phone, second from last, to the right, there's a magnifying glass labeled "Search". Tapping on "Search" will open up the search area. We're looking in the search bar at the very top.
We'll start with the first two letters and see what comes up. The "fa" lets us see that Fallout Shelter is now the second-most popular app on the App Store starting with "fa". Give a single press to "fallout shelter", which will open up "fallout shelter" search results.
Tap the button in the header that says "DOWNLOAD" or "GET", "INSTALL" or "OPEN"
Depending on where we are with the game, and whether we've previously downloaded it or not, there may be a different icon there on the right side. Once we've tapped, the game should begin to download. When it's downloaded, we will then tap on "OPEN". After tapping "OPEN", the game will launch, which we discuss in another section of this tutorial.

You're watching VisiHow. In this tutorial, we're going to show you how to get started with the Fallout Shelter game for your iPhone 6.
Once the game has launched, tap "ENTER VAULT"
This will take us into the first part of the game. To get started, we need to create a new vault. The concept of vaults is that they are shelters where people stay to survive the end of the world. Our job is to manage these people. That's what the game is built on.
Save people from having bad things happen to them. Make sure they stay happy. Keep everyone safe. The game is a bit like Civilization. Those who have played Sid Meier's Civilization or some of the expansion games, the old Warcraft games, Might and Magic, will know that each of those games requires players to move along through creating and managing a society.
At the bottom of the screen is a "HELPFUL HINT" box. This is a quick little tutorial that goes over the basic concepts. We can skip it if we'd like to by closing the app and restarting. We will walk you through the tutorial quickly though. Press "OK".
The green hammer icons are potential build sites for our power generator. Tap one to select it. We will choose the bottom right one. There's our little vault, it's been built. In order to make it work, we need people to work.
Here is a person. This person is level 1. This person doesn't have a great deal of special stats. However, we can learn where the person can be used the best, or what's best about them. There's some clothes, some fight ability, there's a lovely little beard. The person's not really happy though. Tap on "OK".
If we drag a person to the wrong room, we can always drag them off of that room and into the other room. So now we have two people in our little area, and they are going to begin working in the power room. When they are working in the power room, this is going to power up things and allow us to accomplish more in our lovely little game.
People are chatting, talking, a little bit of ad lib and commentary. Good stuff. If we need to move things quickly, we can rush them. However, remember that rushing will cost us resources. Right now, we have free resources that we've started off with. However, as time passes, we will use them. We will have the option to use the store to buy more, which we discuss in another tutorial on how to use the Fallout Shelter store. For now, let's tap on "OK".
This concludes our tutorial on how to get started in the Fallout Shelter game on iPhone 6

We can purchase one card, five cards, fifteen cards, or forty cards
These purchases are made with real money. Where it says $9.99, that's real money. If we want to buy cards, that's absolutely up to us. We have not purchased any yet, although we may, depending on how far we get into the game.
