Edited by Freya, Rushell, Eng
You're watching VisiHow. Today, we're going to show you how Sign up to the MapMyRun application on the iPhone 6.
To begin, we should unlock the phone by pressing the Lock button on the right-hand side of the phone.
The phone can also be unlocked by pressing the Home button at the bottom of the phone.
Swipe across the screen to enter a passcode, or use the fingerprint scanner by placing a finger onto the Home button.
Next, find and tap on the MapMyRun icon, which is blue and white with a blue stickman running in the center of a white circle.
It will take us to an introductory screen.
We can swipe across the screen to scroll through and look at all of the information about the app.
Five small dots at below the information indicate that there are five different pieces of information.
At the bottom, we have the option to enter as an existing user by pressing on the gray button on the left.
There is also the option to join the program by tapping on the orange "Join Now" button on the right.
If we don't have an account and want to sign up, we can tap on "Join Now".
It will then bring up a new window at the bottom of the screen.
We can "Sign up with Facebook" by pressing on that option at the top, or we can enter our email and details in the appropriate boxes on the screen. To sign up with Facebook, we would simply tap on that option, and it will ensure that we are logged in to Facebook and ask for access. Signing up with email is a bit more complicated.
Tap on the text box next to "Email" to bring up a keyboard at the bottom of the screen.
Then type in an email address.
We can move to the next text box to enter our "First Name".
Continue entering information next to "Last Name", "Date of Birth", then "Male" or "Female". Then finally at the bottom we'll choose a "Password". We'll just do that very quickly.
For the "Date of Birth", we can just scroll through the month, date, and year.
Then we can click the box next to "Male" or "Female" to add a check to one of the boxes.
Finally, we'll enter a "Password", and we should type in one we can remember quite easily.
Once we've entered all of our details, press "Done" at the bottom right corner of the screen.
Then press the orange "Sign up" button.
At the top of the screen, there may be a scrolling flower, which just means that it's loading as it signs us up to MapMyRun.
It then takes us to a screen where we can "PERSONALIZE".
Because we didn't sign up with Facebook it doesn't have our Facebook picture or information to use.
We can add a profile image by pressing on the large blue square with a white plus sign.
We can add our weight by tapping on the text box on the left side just over the plus sign.
We can add our height into the box on the right.
We can also "Skip" editing a profile.
Press "Done" to accept any changes made.
We'll just tap on "Skip" to continue for now.
It will take us automatically to a screen where we can record a workout.
It talks us through each step as a tutorial.
It then takes us to the map screen, where we can start to record our runs.
