Skout, a geo-based online social meeting hub, and a dating application is one of the first of its kind. Much like dating websites, you can find and meet new people. However, with Skout, you can locate them based on their general location. The app is available for iOS as well as Android systems, and in 2013, reported over 500m connections of people using the app.
Skout uses a GPS to aid users in locating others near their area, although it will not divulge the precise location. And, users can choose to forego the option of geo-tracking by adjusting the settings within the app. Furthermore, a GPS location reveal is only for the adult user community.
When users search the site, they can view profiles with recent activities of Skout users and can then instant message the ones they are interested in speaking to. Another option available with the Skout application website is the ability to send gifts – virtual gifts—to other skout users. Communities within the Skout app, both of teens and adults, are kept completely separate, and mixing of the two is not possible. Skout is used worldwide and in over a dozen languages and in countless countries.
Skout also provides a feature for traveling, allowing its users to meet others in the city they are traveling. As a paid feature, Skout Travel is perfect for dating when on vacation or business trips.
An additional feature offered through Skout is the Shake to Chat feature. This extra will connect its users to others who shake their phones while using the app. And, as an added privacy feature, Shake to Chat users remain anonymous for nearly one minute after starting a Shake to Chat conversation.
A universal platform for making friends, chatting, or finding a date, Skout offers an alluring interface and one that is very similar to Facebook.
