    This will take us to the main menu of the TripAdvisor app. We have the option to use the search bar at the top of the main menu. Please see the video on VisiHow on how to use the search bar in TripAdvisor for details on that function of the app. There will also be a list of previous searches and the Browse section below the previous searches.

  10. 10
    Tap one of the three available options for how location services should be used by TripAdvisor. There will be a checkmark to the right of the current option. For example, if location services are currently disabled for TripAdvisor, the checkmark will be next to 'Never', indicating the application will never be able to use location services. The second option is 'While Using the App', which indicates the app will be able to use location services, but only while it is open. The third option is 'Always', which indicates the app will always be able to use location services, regardless of whether it is open or not. In this example, we will use 'While Using the App', as there is no reason for the app to use our location while we are not using the app, and it may decrease battery life if an app is using location services in the background.

    Tap 'Near Me Now' to view destinations near our current location. Since location services have been enabled, there will be no notification, and the 'Near Me Now' functionality will be available. For example, tap 'Restaurants' to view restaurants near our current location. This will display a list of restaurants.
