Loved the old version - The new version - No


I LOVED the old version of the myScouting app. I would tell others about it on the commissioner team and District Key 3 Team. How at my finger tips as District Commissioner I could check unit rosters while meeting with them to confirm an app had processed or not. Also I used the color coded YPT all the time. With a quick filter then checks I could quickly email those expired or that would in 30 or 60 or 90 days. I was encouraging others to also utilize that so we could help get the notices out. After the iPhone update the old version wouldn’t work anymore and I went to look for an update and instead found a whole new app. Yes I can enter a simple contact still but the app was most being utilized in ways that are no longer available so we would have to have our computers with us when meeting with a unit to check on things for them. I 100% support having an app, the new look is nice, but please bring back where We can access easily the member lists for the units as well as the YPT status and send emails by selecting individuals.

A dumpster fire


I write software for a living so maybe I'm being a little bit harsh but this is the worst, and I mean the worst, app I have ever used. Think "making an app using Office 98" and you're only halfway there. I just imagine everyone at BSA HQ thought this looked amazing when it was running on their Compaq desktops with Windows ME...

Just off the top of my head, here's the biggest sins:
- The UI doesn't resize correctly when rotating.
- The progress buttons are tiny and finicky.
- The audio kicks in too late so you think it might have frozen.
- The interactive elements of the training aren't aligned with the graphics at times so trying to find the next button you have to push in order to progress is a sadistic game of "Pin the tail on the donkey".
- If you happen to find yourself on a screen where you need to scroll down to see the complete slide, be aware that you will not be able to scroll back up!!! You will need to leave the training and come back. Seriously!?! (On the plus side, it does save your progress, most of the time so this behavior can't be some sick interpretation of 'leave no trace'...)

BSA, if you're reading this (***please read this***) find a contractor with a proven UI DESIGNER and a track record of successful cross-platform implementations before burning cash on another terrible tool! I am begging you.🙏🏻

Great Start


This is a great start, but it was a little painful to use. The biggest problem was usability. On an iPad 2 AIr I found it difficult to get the full text or buttons to display in many places as I did the training. Drop downs to select A, B, C etc where frustratingly difficult to use. Some text was too small to select, even on a tablet. (For example, a list of the ideals in the scout law in tiny cursive text.) As a new Pack Committee Chair, it wasn’t obvious which training was most important and needed to be completed first. I figured it out, but the design could be cleaner and clearer when there are so many options and so much text.

I hope this isn’t a one and done. QA and keep going!
