Description

The Boy Scout Handbook

A Guide to Adventure, A Guidebook for Life

A Handbook for the Past and the Future

You hold in your hands a century of Scouting. In addition to being a reference for

the youth of Scouting’s second century, this 12th edition of the Boy Scout Handbook

also honors the heritage of Scouts who came before you. It combines art from

previous editions with modern illustrations, photographs, and information.

As you browse through this app, take note of the elements that make it special.

- Quotes from past and present BSA leaders and literature will inspire you and remind you that Scouting’s values are timeless.

- Vintage artwork from Handbooks past will help you understand how Scouting skills have changed very little from a century ago.

- “In This Chapter” boxes will give you an idea of what you can expect, as well as a quick index when you’re looking for specific information.

- Photography is essential to a beautiful book. Three of the five professional photographers who worked on this edition are Eagle Scouts; one was a Life Scout and now has worked professionally for the BSA for 30 years; and the fifth is an adult Scouter!

Features:

- Toggle between full page view and text-only view

- Searchable Index

- Bookmark and store your favorite sections

We’re excited to bring you the first digital version of the Scout Handbook. We will continue to make updates to the features and functionality to make this the best application to suit your needs. Please email us at bsa.handbook@scouting.org with your comments.

Getting much better, no content updates, but viewability is way better.

:
I bought this back in August and gave it 1 star. Version 1.1 is a much improved release, but some of the issues, like fixing typos and keeping the RULES CURRENT, are still lacking. Example, "Bugler" is NOT a valid leadership position for Star, Life or Eagle, it was a typo in the 12th edition and it's still a typo, and yet it's still in this revision. I'm leaving the parts below, from my first eval, cause they still apply. Beats carrying around the book in a few cases. The beauty of electronic copies, you SHOULD be able to keep the data updated, but not so in this duplicated, miniaturized version of the 12th edition. A Scout is Patient. (or will need to be with this app) Guess I should give it some positive comment, nice reference material, even with the 90MB payload of this 1.1 update. Fixing the ability to paginate in text mode is great... However, if I am flipping pages in FULL screen mode, and scroll down to the bottom of the page to see the page number, then "finger flip" to the next page, it goes to the top of the next page, which doesn't allow you to see the page number. YES, I can count, but I would like to be able to flip in the same view (top of page, middle of page or bottom of page) without having to reset the vertical view for each subsequent page. The ability to have three font sizes in text mode is GREAT. Hint to BSA: Don't even think of charging for updates... We who bought a pig in a poke on day one, have spent all we intend to spend... just saying...

4/5 stars

Liking this more after the update

:
The latest update fixed a few frustrations I had with the app. I hope BSA continues to invest in this app and provides more features over time. Keep it up!

5/5 stars
