Find Friends in MyFitnessPal on iPhone 6
Edited by Freya, Crystal, Eng
Hi, you're watching VisiHow. This is a tutorial on how to search for friends in the MyFitnessPal app for iPhone 6.
To begin, unlock the phone by pressing the lock button on the right-hand side of the phone. Alternatively, press the big round button at the bottom of the phone called the home button.
Once the lock screen is up, simply swipe right to unlock the phone. Enter the passcode or press your finger on the home button, which doubles as a fingerprint scanner, if you have that option enabled.
Look for the "MyFitnessPal" app, which, in this case, is in the "Useful" folder. It is a blue icon with a white silhouette of someone jumping, and in the left-hand corner there is a grey tab with a little dumbbell symbol. Tap it once to open the application.
It will automatically open to the homepage where we can see our daily calorie count, the option to connect, some status updates and blog posts.
In the bottom gray bar, tap the last option, "More", with 3 dots. This will open up the menu.
Tap on "Friends" indicated by 3 stick men in a bunch, on the left-hand side.
At the moment, we don't have any friends, but if we did, they would be listed here. We can find requests here as well.
Tap the plus sign in the top right-hand corner to find friends.
We can either find friends through the phone contacts, Facebook or email. In this example, we will use Facebook. Tap on it and it will bring us to the Facebook application.
MyFitnessPal will ask to access our Facebook information, tap on "OK" to agree.
Press "OK" again to find your friends.
Now there is a list of people that we can add or invite to MyFitnessPal. Tap on "Add Friend" to add someone, or press the back arrow in the top left corner.
To invite people via "Email", we can put in the email address, our name for the subject, and a message. Tap on the white check mark in the top right-hand corner to send the invite, or press the back arrow in the top left corner to go back.
To find friends through your "Contacts", the phone will first ask for permission to access them. Tap on "OK" and it will find your phone contacts.
In this example, there is only one person that uses MyFitnessPal, so I can only add one. Tap on "Add Friend" to add them, or press the back arrow in the top left corner to go back.
Tap on the "X" in the top left corner to close the "Add Friends" section.
Tap on the back arrow in the top left corner to go back.
Press the home icon in the bottom left corner to return to the home screen.
This concludes the tutorial on how to add friends in MyFitnessPal on the iPhone 6. If you have any questions or comments, please post them in the section below. Thank you for watching VisiHow.
