We are very pleased to announce a new way to access World Scouting information on iPhone, iPad and iPod touch mobile devices.

SCOUTS is our new application available for download from the Apple App Store and is compatible with iOS 4 or later.

Scouts from around the world can install our SCOUTS app for free on their mobile device and get immediate access to selected content directly from our website and related Internet services.

  • Discover the latest news articles from World Souting or from your favourite region in your preferred language (Arabic, English, French, Russian and Spanish supported)
  • Download books and other materials from the WOSM library (English and French supported)
  • Enjoy the latest videos or photos from our galleries (A new gallery will be added during the World Scout Jamboree.)
  • Browse our maps to see the locations of world events, Scouts of the World bases and SCENES Centres .

All this content can now be viewed easily from within the SCOUTS app.
To install the application, simply visit the App Store and search for SCOUTS or click here.

We would like to acknowledge our gratitude to Oleksander Motyka of Scouts Australia who has developed this first App for World Scouting.

If you are already an Android developer and would like to volunteer to help us develop a similar application for release on that platform, please send us a message at with your details. We'll be very happy to hear from you.
