New Update Available for Scout for iPhone: iPhone 5 Optimization, New My Dashboard, & Local Things to Do Discovery

When we set out to create our next navigation product, we didn’t just want to build an app that could take you from one place to another.  Instead, we wanted to create something bigger; a more personal navigation app that could really help you navigate your life – from driving you to your favorite people and places to helping you figure out what to do on Friday night.

Today, I’m really excited to let you know that it is with that vision in mind that we've updated Scout for iPhone – and it's now available in the AppStore.

In this latest update, we’ve added ways for you to discover events & activities near you, totally refreshed My Dashboard, and have optimized it for iPhone 5!

NEW DISCOVER ACTIVITIES, EVENTS, & THINGS TO DO

On Scout.me, you’ve always been able to search and discover things to do like live music, outdoor activities, & family events near you but today I’m happy to let you know in this update, you can now do all of that right in Scout for iPhone.

Want to find a show to go to tonight? Easy.

Feeling like you want to go on a hike? No problem.

Want to find somewhere to take the kids this weekend? Piece of cake.

In the updated Scout for iPhone, you can do all of this and more – and of course, as soon as you discover something worth checking out, we can help drive you there too.

To start discovering things to do near you, just hit the “More” button on My Dashboard and you’ll be brought to a list of 12 categories you can browse. Some of them include, live music, family fun, kids events, and adventures.

Try it out and let us know what you think!

 

My Dashboard: Updated & Refreshed!

In this update for Scout for iPhone, you’ll also notice that we’ve totally refreshed “My Dashboard” to make it both easier on the eyes and more convenient to use.

Most notably, we wanted to make it simpler for you to access your favorites (heart icon) and your most recent trips so we’ve added short cuts right on My Dashboard. We also made the map larger to give you a better idea about your surrounding area.

Lastly on My Dashboard, you’ll notice we’ve updated the icons – which we just thought looked cooler. ;)

Now Optimized for the iPhone 5!

The last thing I wanted to share with you today is that Scout for iPhone is now optimized for the iPhone 5 so now, you can discover and drive using the entirety of its beautiful 4 inch screen!
