New Mobile App helps Youth Track Advancement

New Scouting mobile app, which is now available for both iPhone and Android devices.

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.

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.
