No stars

Doesn’t work on an iPad. Won’t resume a session. Wasted 30 minutes doing hazardous weather, and it started over. It says 40% completed but after asking to resume it goes to the beginning. The drag and drop lessons don’t work. At first I was glad to see it had been updated because the old version was painful to listen to the robo voice. But wow, this is worse yet. IF YOU WANT VOLUNTEERS TO DO THE TRAINING, MAKE IT A GOOD EXPERIENCE.

Very messy app

Very poorly executed app. Odd interface. Should be merged with the red Scouting app.

“Add Announcement” and “Scouting Calendar” are big buttons on the main screen. These haven’t been in use for years and have nothing to do with Scoutbook’s calendar or anything else.

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.🙏🏻
