Would be great if it were stable

I would love to track my scout’s progress, but I have had two major problems: 1) the app continually crashes when I try to log in. It seems the only way I can get into my account lately is to delete and reinstall the app and log in fresh. Any attempt to log in after that, and the app will just crash at the login screen. 2) when I was *able* to log in, I went to look at my Scout’s rank requirements, but for each rank I opened, it automatically set it to 100% complete (I did nothing) even though he is nowhere near complete for those ranks. The details show he has many requirements that are not complete. My SM was very confused, as was I.

**Update 08/23: I updated to the newest version and it still crashes when it tries to bring up the google account login pop-up screen

Needs a ton of help

As a mobile app developer and Scouter I find the quality and user experience of this app to be greatly disappointing. There are numerous bugs that inhibit my ability to gain any value from this app. When I try to view my scouts’ advancements I always get an error message stating that it is unable to fetch advancement data. The notifications are very broken. I’ve seen a badge over the app icon for months saying I have 155 unread messages, yet when I try to tap on the messages to read or dismiss them (not sure what functionality is supposed to happen there), nothing changes and messages are still marked as unread. A couple weeks ago, the badge started displaying 3, yet I still have the 155 unread messages that I can’t dismiss. Besides that, the user experience is often confusing and unintuitive. I’m at the point where I’m going to delete the app. It’s embarrassing when parents find and download this app, experience these issues and then ask unit leaders why it’s broken and when it’ll be fixed. The only advice I can give is to write their concerns in a review and hope that someone sees it some day.

yay…….

As a scout I’ve used this app for about a year now. Don’t get me started on all bugs, quality issues, and certain areas lacking functionality. Those things were manageable as long as I got the basic use out of the app. If only I could use the app now. After having finally updated to the new version, the app logged me out of my account with an error message (which for me is normal) and then proceeded to shut down the app. When reopening and logging back in, it logged me in as a parent instead of a scout without any of the inputted scout information except for my certifications. As a result the app is virtually useless to me and nothing I have done to try to fix it has helped. I know that “Scouts of America” has had to fork up a lot of properties because of all the sexual abuse cases, but please, for the love of god, hire an actual dev team to work on this. At this point behind the shiny little GUI the functionality and quality of this app is equal to the ones I made when I first started coding almost 7 years ago.
