What's New in Version 2.1.2
New 2015 Programme Badges
Useful but needs update please
Very handy app, love the way it's so easy to flick between sections as well as between different parts of the app, different versions of the promise, etc. Please update though as the app still doesn't include the new (or rather reinstated) Health & Fitness badge for Beavers.
STILL not updated with Health & Fitness by April 17 - and will we ever see the new leadership stripe added?
Fed up now - STLL NO UPDATES - we're nearly in June, and not only do we not have any sign of Health & Fitness, we don't have the updates from last October to the Digital Maker badges, and I recently almost used the old criteria for the badge. This is a paid app but developers are treating purchasers as if it was some rubbishy freebie. NOT impressed, cutting star rating from 3 to 1.
LOVE IT 👏🏻⚜️👏🏻⚜️👏🏻⚜️
However please take into consideration lots of the positive comments to amend few bits and pieces:
1) would be great if you can tick when a requirement is completed as part of a badge as most badges need more than 1 requirement to earn them, will make the app so much more useful.
2) I'd like to be able to tick for more than one member.
3) the position badge tab has still the OLD badges in all pictures (all sections)
4) Healthy heating activity (yellow) Beaver badge missing.
But overall I love it.
IGNORE the comments saying the app is useless as a simple Google search give you the info. I agree but that's only right if you can have Internet connection; in my weekly meeting place we never have a network connection and in camp it's rare to have a good one. That's why this app is useful and could be amazing if you amend few bits, so 4* for now.
This is a great app for checking requirements on the go especially if you have no internet connection available. I would like to see, as has been mentioned before, a check box for individual requirements of a badge as some badges are completed over several months. Also I have a cub and a scout, who do I use the app to track? It would be handy to be able to track multiple members achievements.
