Simplify Girl Scout cookie season with myCookie apps.
If you have one or more Girl Scouts in your family selling Girl Scout cookies then myCookie Family is for you.
Whether your scout has the cookies in hand and is selling them outright or she is taking orders first and collecting payment upon delivery later, myCookie Family will help you stay organized. myCookie Family enables families with one or more Girl Scouts to keep track of each scout individually, monitor cookie inventories, use digital cookie sheets, and track payments to the troop conveniently from your mobile device.
Created by an experienced Girl Scout cookie-selling family. Special care was taken to make sure the app is simple to use yet full of time saving features. Take some of the stress out of managing the details so you can focus more on supporting your Girl Scout as she learns the business side of cookie season.

Ratings and Reviews
Best cookie family app ever
This app allows my daughter to take orders from her own phone, without the hassle of a paper form that could easily get lost. AND the issue of trying to read handwriting and figuring out who really ordered what because the lines got crossed on the paper form is no longer an issue.
This app allows customer information to be saved. Can put an order in, mark it paid, mark it delivered, and can even note if the customer gave monetary donations as well!
Once we got a good sized number of orders in the app, she figured out that there are filters so she can filter to see only the orders not delivered or not paid etc to help her complete the sales.
Game Changer for Multi-Scout Families
The app is fantastic! The multi-device sync makes it possible for older scouts and both parents to all update one order list. I would love to see the ability to select contacts from iPhone’s contact list, see contact’s purchase history from previous years, and ability to enter a single order for a contact like “Grandma” and have it allocate the order credit between multiple scouts.
I was very excited when I read the reviews but now somewhat disappointed with the sync option. The sync option takes a really long time and I have not had success with syncing. The syncing option could be a little bit more user friendly. If this option is updated, I would be willing to give this app 5 stars.
As I had mentioned in my email I did push out an update that tried to work a bit with the sync option. I put back the manual sync button and did a few changes in effort to get sync to work a little bit better. I am not planning on messing with the app for this cookie season as to not make any issues worse. I do appreciate your feed back and we'll do what we can to earn those last two stars from you.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
