The Good Turn application is a simple yet hi-tech replacement for the age-old good turn coin carried by many scouts to remind them to “Do a good turn daily.” It was primarily designed for the iPhone and iPod touch. It works on the iPad in the double-size mode. The fully functional application is free of charge. Additional in-app purchases provide different stylized coins, bronze, silver, and gold, for flipping each time a good turn is done. The cost of these goes towards keeping the web companion site running, future development, and most importantly supporting our local Boy Scouts and Cub Scouts.
In addition to the phone app, the Good Turn Web companion site provides a view from any web browser to the good turns that people are doing all over the world. You can navigate around a dynamic Google Map with markers on recent good turn locations. The site also provides support information for the application.
