Have you done a good turn today?

"Do a Good Turn Daily" has been the slogan for Boy Scouts for generations. Some good turns are big and some are small but each one is a thoughtful, kind, or helpful act that makes the world a nicer place to live.

Helping someone cross a busy street, cleaning up trash on the roadside, helping someone pick up an overturned grocery bag are small examples of a good turn. Sometimes just a kind hello to a stranger can lighten up their day.

Of course, saving a life, helping out others during disasters, helping maintain the environment, and volunteering are big good turns. But you don't have to do a good turn like these everyday. Get started small and work your way up!

Visit the Good Turn Web to see good turns done by users of the Good Turn iPhone application. There is an interactive map that shows some of the most recent good turns from around the world!

  • v1.0.1
    • None known.
  • v1.0
    • Under iOS 6 Beta 4 tapping the History tab sometimes crashes the app. Unknown if this will happen with the release version. 
    • Under iOS 5.1 or less the app uses the deprecated UDID to limit the number of GoodTurns submitted from the app to the GoodTurn Web in a single day. If turn submission is disabled in Settings, the UDID is never shared. Use of UDID will be removed completely in the next version.
