  3. 3
    Swipe across the screen to enter a passcode, or simply hold a finger onto the Home button to use the fingerprint scanner
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  4. 4
    Next, we need to find the MapMyRun icon, which is blue and white with an image of a man running inside of a white circle
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  5. 5
    Tap the icon once to open the application, and it should automatically take us to the map page, where we can start recording workouts
    .
    It may also open the login page, in which case please refer to another video on this website, where we explain exactly how to sign up and/or log in to MapMyRun.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  6. 6
    First of all, "COACHING" is in the top left corner
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  7. 7
    "LIVE TRACKING" is in the top right corner
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  8. 8
    Both of these options have very small, orange teardrop shape images in the corners
    .
    This means we need to be upgraded to the premium version of the app before we can edit these settings.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  9. 9
    First, we have "MUSIC", which is in the middle at the top, and is indicated by the musical notes
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  10. 10
    Tap on "MUSIC" to view exactly which music we want to add
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  11. 11
    On the "Music" page, we can synchronize certain music apps as well as the iPhone Music Player with this application
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  12. 12
    We can select "SHUFFLE" at the top left corner
    .
    The icon will turn blue when enabled, and will be gray when disabled. This is the same for "REPEAT" and "AUTO PLAY" located next to "SHUFFLE". The icons are blue when the option is enabled and gray when the option is disabled. Just tap to enable or disable. This is a way to control our music within one app rather than skipping between two different applications when working out.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  13. 13
    Press "Record" at the top left corner of the screen to go back to the MapMyRun map
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  14. 14
    Then we can go to "ACTIVITY", which is on the left-hand side, just below the "COACHING" option
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  15. 15
    Tap on "ACTIVITY" to choose exactly which activity we are going to be doing
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  16. 16
    The most recent activities are listed under "Recent" at the top, and we have things such as running, dog walking, push-ups, etc
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  17. 17
    We can also tap on "All" at the top right, and listed in alphabetical order are all of the possible exercises we could be doing
    .
    We have football, fencing, handball, ice hockey, and even musical instrument. Scroll through to search.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  18. 18
    Tap on a letter on the right-hand side of the screen to skip to that part of the alphabet
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  19. 19
    Alternatively, we can simply use the Search bar at the top of the screen
    .
    Tap on the search bar, then use the keyboard that appears to enter an activity.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  20. 20
    Start typing in a few letters to find exactly what activity we might be interested in
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  21. 21
    Tap to select an activity if we find one of interest
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  22. 22
    For now, we'll just press "Cancel" at the top right corner to return to the previous screen
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  23. 23
    We'll choose an activity from the list
    .
    I personally like to choose "Run", so we'll tap on that.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  24. 24
    The next option is "ROUTE", which is in the middle
    .
    Tap on that to open up our "Routes".
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  25. 25
    This screen will load nearby routes that other people have done
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  26. 26
    If an advert pops up, just press the "x" on a corner of the advert to close it
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  27. 27
    At the top of the "Routes" screen, there are three options
    .
    We are currently on "Nearby".
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  28. 28
    This loads other people's routes that have been run in our location
    .
    If we are on vacation away from home, this will show us popular routes in the location we are currently visiting. This is very useful.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  29. 29
    We can look through and tap on one of the routes to load more information about that particular route
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  30. 30
    On the "Route Detail" screen, we have the option in the top right-hand corner to "Do It", which means to start in this route
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  31. 31
    We can tap on "Routes" in the top left-hand corner to not use this route and go back and choose another
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  32. 32
    On the "Routes" screen again, we can tap on "Bookmarked" at the top in the middle to go to any routes that we may have bookmarked
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  33. 33
    We don't have any routes "Bookmarked" at the moment
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  34. 34
    Finally, tap on "My Routes" at the top to open ones we've already run
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  35. 35
    Go back by pressing on "Record" at the top left corner
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  36. 36
    Our final option to edit is "Gear", which has the icon of a shoe
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  37. 37
    On this screen, we can select which gear we are using
    .
    This is quite a long process of selecting exactly which gear, but once we have done this, there will be a list of things to choose from, such as the type of shoes, maybe our sweatbands and this kind of thing. This is a fairly useful part of the app. Say, for example, we're using Nike shoes. It will tell us exactly when we can update these shoes, or when they are no longer supporting us, and when we should get a new pair.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  38. 38
    Go back by pressing "Record" at the top left corner of the screen
    .
    It's not compulsory to enter in our gear.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  39. 39
    Now, we are ready to start our run, so when we want to start, we'll just press "Start Workout" in the orange bar at the bottom of the screen
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  40. 40
    The assistant will start to explain what we're doing
    .
    We're obviously not running at the moment, so we don't have a current pace or calories.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  41. 41
    As we're running, if our settings are on the default settings, then she will tell us when it has been 10 or 15 minutes, what our average pace is, etc
    .
    She sort of explains the run to us as we're going, so we don't have to keep looking at the screen.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  42. 42
    However, when we do we'll see the option to edit our music along the top
    .
    As mentioned before, we don't have to switch between the music players.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  43. 43
    We have the option to "Pause Workout" at the bottom of the screen in red
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  44. 44
    When we pause the workout, it will show us our exact information at the time
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  45. 45
    We can then tap on "Resume Workout" workout to continue
    .

    We can finish our workout by sliding across the black button where it says "Slide to Finish"
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  47. 47
    When we save our workout, it will have the details about it recorded
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  48. 48
    We can change the date, and we can edit the Activity again as well, if we ended up doing something else
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  49. 49
    We can add or edit "Notes" as well
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  50. 50
    Press "return" in the lower right corner to remove the keyboard
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  51. 51
    At the bottom, we have the option to share our workout details with different people and using either Facebook or Twitter
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  52. 52
    Then we can "Discard" the workout by pressing on the gray button at the bottom
    .

    We'll just tap on "Discard" for now because we didn't actually do anything
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  55. 55
    The app will double check with us to be sure we want to discard our workout, so we can just tap "Yes" to confirm
    .

  56. 56
    It will then take us back to the page we started

Questions and Answers

How can I get more than one song to play when I walk?

I click Record a Workout. My Activity is Walk. I do not select a route, No Gear. I click Music. Click Auto Play. I highlight the first Artist in my music selection. I click Start Workout. The music plays, but only the one that I highlighted.

Was this helpful? Yes | No| I need help

After you tap on "Music" and "Auto Play", tap on "Repeat" to disable it if needed. Then, you can tap on "Playlists", where you can use playlists from the Music application. You can put as many songs into playlists as you wish from within the Music application. You can also tap on "Albums" or "Artists". If there is more than one song from the tapped album or the artist, then the songs will play too. You can switch songs on the fly by tapping the double-triangle buttons that denote the previous or next song.
