Check Out the New Scouting Mobile App!


New Scouting Mobile App Pulls Advancement Data from Scoutbook
 
BSA's Information Technology Group, along with many volunteer beta testers, are excited to announce the new  Scouting mobile app which is now available for  both iPhone and Android devices.
You can search for "Scouting BSA," or click these direct links to download from the  Apple App Store or  Google Play.
Scouting makes it easier than ever for youth and their parents to view and track advancement in the Cub Scouting and Boy Scouting programs-as well as youth recognition in the Venturing program. The app pulls existing advancement data straight from  Scoutbook for viewing on an enhanced user interface.
No cell service? No problem! If your Scouting Adventures take you off the grid, this app's offline capability allows parents and youth (13 and older) to access advancement data anywhere at any time. 
Once the app is downloaded, parents and youth should use their Scoutbook credentials to login. If you don't have a Scoutbook account yet, visit   Scoutbook.com  to create one. Note, a youth and parent can still setup a Scouting account for the new mobile app without a unit subscription to Scoutbook.
The initial release of the app contains the following functions:
  • Track a Scout's advancement
  • Track logs like service hours, hiking, and camping
  • View parent and/or Scout profile
  • Submit feedback
  • Provide parent access to your Scouts' accounts
The new app also supports a night-mode feature, user default data settings, and offline capabilities (under settings). Additional features like a Scout community, notifications, leadership, calendar, and Scout challenges will also be added throughout 2018.
If you find any issues with the new  Scouting app, you're invited to use the "Submit Feedback" feature in the app at the "gear" icon.
