My mom isn’t the most tech-savvy person I know nor does she have the best sense of direction, but she does love her iPhone. I’m beginning to think she loves it more than she loves me. Certainly there isn’t a son-replacing app out there…right?
I had the opportunity to beta test the app, ScoutAtlas, before it’s official release. At first I thought the app would only be useful for remembering where I parked but I soon realized it was more than just a simple app.
Here is a description of the app from the developer:
This app helps you save your location, keep a list of your favorite places, and share these coordinates with your friends. You could save the location of your parking spot as you exit the car. You could save the location of a small, secluded spot on the beach. You could save any location you want and with the power of Apple, find your way back to it easily. While looking at the map, you will be able to see how long it takes to get to each of your favorite places. Scout for different locations and store them in your atlas, ScoutAtlas.
So without further ado, here is my experience with ScoutAtlas and how the app brought me closer to my mom.
