Isn't it about time we harness the power of the cameras on our smart phones? Why is it that with millions of people walking around with video cameras in their hands we still have to go somewhere and find out that the show is sold out or the line is too long? Why spend the money, time and effort when you can ask people what's going on right then and there? There are apps out there that let you read reviews of restaurants. But how old are those reviews? And do you really trust what people write? Don't you want to see with your own eyes how the food and the scene looks THE NIGHT you are going to that restaurant? What if you just want to see what the Eiffel Tower looks like TONIGHT from your car in Boise, Idaho? With Scout it you can do all those things. Just send out a request and you will get a video answer! Don't be limited... Experience the world and all it has to offer.. Meet new people... send out a request... go ahead... you know you want to…
The SIR (Scout It Request) is the backbone of the app. It's how you reach out to the millions of users on the network that you don't actually know. Want to know how crowded the restaurant you're going to is? What that new bag at the mall looks like? If that famous actress is really at the club? How the Taj Mahal looks at night? Who is sitting next to the Queen at Wimbledon? Get answers to your questions by sending out a SIR (Scout It Request).
Type in any location -- it can be a famous landmark or an address or a city -- and ask for video. Your SI Request goes out over the network to ALL the users in that location. Those users get a push notification letting them know that you have a question and that they can help. You'll be amazed at the answers you get and the different viewpoints you see.
Once users respond to your request, you get a push notification that your question has been answered and video has been posted. View the videos. If you like them, you can share them with all your friends by adding the videos to your feed. If you don't like them, you don't have to post them -- you control what you share and what you don't.
Scout it isn't like logging on to other social networking apps and looking at what people post. SI not only allows you to search for what you want by keyword and location... it also gives you the power to leverage the network to ASK people to post things for you! The real magic of Scout it is that you can make friends all over the world simply by engaging in the community. Your journey begins with one simple request... What will it be?
