Location scouting is hard!
Do you do location scouting? And if you do, wouldn't crowd sourcing be the perfect solution? Of course! LOL
I stumbled into Scoutt the other day and thought I'd post about it so that others might get started. And no, I didn't go searching for other apps… I thought maybe y'all would comment and help me find out if there are others?
I tested this a little bit and didn't find much in my home town of St. Louis.
I was also frustrated (and maybe that's because I have a free account?) that every time I clicked on the MAP button on the menu, it took me to Toronto – not to the last location I was searching. If you start diving down into sample images, wouldn't you want to go back to where you last were on the map and not Toronto? Note: I found a “default location” in settings, but it would still be nice to have it go back to your last searched location.
So there's work to be done, but this could be very useful for photographers/filmmakers wanting to find cool locations if everyone jumped on.
