Within the Scout It app you can scout new locations provided by other users and save locations privately that you have scouted on your own. All locations are neatly organized under country, state, city, and then by more detailed words of your choosing. Also within the app you are able to host venues or studios you own for hourly or daily rentals to other creatives. Creatives likewise can book venues or studios within the app to have their next photoshoot at. Hunt is a feature where user can post a query and the other users can comment on it.
The hosted public venues can be searched and booked for a particular day and time slot.
-Venues are available in hourly slots for booking.

-Booking will need an approval from Host. Once approved, the user will need to make the payment which will complete the booking.

-Once approved further booking for same slot and location cannot be done.
