Before we can use TF Mobile we must log in with our TF credentials (the username and password we normally use to access TF). This procedure is described below. Register a TF account through the main TF website if you do not already have one.
First open the TF Mobile app:
You should be presented with a login screen. Set the server, username and password as specified in the details emailed to you by the TF development team.
Click Log-In. You should now see an overview map. Your current position is shown as a small white circle:
Let’s look at the interface, clockwise from the top-left: The + and - buttons can be used to zoom in/out of the map. This can also be achieved with a pinch gesture.
The text at the top-centre of the screen shows the selected MU, currently (none), indicating we have not yet selected an MU.
At the top-right is the Sync button (to synchronise changes to/from the main TF server) and the Menu button (discussed later).
A scale bar can be found in the lower-right of the screen.
At the bottom-left is the GPS status indicator (currently green) and the Zoom to Location button (which moves the map to your current GPS location).
A low-resolution world overview map is currently shown. The text at the top of the map shows the account TF Mobile has used to connect. A summary of pending changes (changes waiting to be synced to the main TF system) is also shown.
