The smartphone app for the 2011 World Scout Jamboree has been launched and allows Scouts to find other users, easily exchange contact information and discover points of interest and navigate the Jamboree site. News and twitter updates about the jamboree are also easily accessible.
Simply Scouting, the theme of the jamboree, aims to show Scouting in many aspects. One of the theme's key concepts is "Meetings" — the spontaneous coming together of new friends — this the app's creators hope it will serve that goal.
The jamboree app is available free for iPhone on Apple's Appstore and Android Market.
