    How ironic that you can’t read the steps via an iPhone!

    • Ha, great point. It’s fixed now! You may need to clear Safari’s cache on your iPhone to get it to work if you’ve already tried to load the post once.

    FWIW: With Droid devices having a higher market share than apple in phones, and with more tablet devices in android or windows, it might be a good idea to produce info for devices other than apple.

    • about to say the same thing.

    Does the Droid have a place to store PDFs? All this is is really an app to store and read pdf files. Droids do this better through their native apps to my understanding.

    Not as easy as portrayed. You have to download the app, then re-sync your phone, then go through Safari (not Google) and use ‘Guide To Safe Scouting PDF’ as your search criteria. I manage to find it and download it off another unit’s site to my iBooks bookcase.
    I got it, it just wasn’t easy or intuitive. Expect lots of questions.

    Pretty simple. Took less than 30 seconds to do. Already had iBooks installed but even if I didn’t would have taken less than a minute for it to download.
    @Scott yes you have to use a web browser (safari is the default) to get to google but you still use google to search.
