Girls Scouts Go High Tech with iPhone Cookie Sale App
Are the days of Girls Scouts knocking at your door selling cookies on their way out? Proving that iPhone mobile applications are now fully mainstream, the Girls Scouts of the USA, the organization which oversees Girls Scouts in the US, said today that it has released the Official Girl Scouts of the USA Cookie Finder for the iPhone or iPod touch. The group said that the free app allows users to find their way to the nearest cookie sale nearby, with dates of the start and end of local cookie sales, and ability to post those sales to Facebook and Twitter. The app even includes an interactive voting feature for favorite Girl Scout cookies, which can also be posted online. Unfortunately for Los Angeles, Ventura, Orange County, San Diego, and other area residents, all of those Girl Scout cookie sale events recent ended.
