We all enjoy discovering new places and experiences but some of us don’t like to be misled. Frustrated with Yelp and skeptical about the reviews? Scout is like Yelp, except the reviews/tips are from your friends. If you are one of those who prefers tips/reviews from trusted persons, Scout is the right source for you. From restaurants and bars to coffee shops, share among friends your collective favorite eating places and tips/photos.

Share ETA – Pick your route and share your ETA easily with one or more contacts in a single tap. Scout suggests your most frequently used contacts to share with while on the road.

Get live ETAs – Scout shows when Meet Up attendees are on the move with real-time ETAs on the map. Now you’ll always know when a friend is late and whether “five minutes away” really means “I haven’t left yet.”

Always be on time – Receive notifications when traffic is slower than usual on your daily commute home or to work. Get reminders one hour before your Meet Up event is set to begin and as your guests arrive.
