Launched in 2018, the new Scouting app provides a better way (than Scoutbook) for a Boy Scout and his parents to view and track his advancement. A troop leader needs to use Scoutbook to enter or view advancement for youth other than his/her own.
Article: Scouting app for iPhone and Android helps Scouts track advancement on the go (Bryan on Scouting, 3/15/18).
The app is free and available on iOS and Android devices.
After downloading the Scouting app, parents and youth use their Scoutbook.com credentials to login. Don't create your own Scoutbook account. Use the one sent to you by the Troop. If needed, your invitation can be re-sent.
