Skout is a highly respected developer of a very useful location-based networking and dating app as well as a website that is used for social networking purposes. The company was one of the first companies to use an app to help people who are looking to date. It was also used for a mobile people discovery app to provides an emphasis on creating a generalized user location. The application can be used on both an iOS as well as Android operating systems. Skout also owns other companies and applications that include an application exclusively devoted to nightlife app and the application that is known as Fuse which is used as a way to create temporary group messages easily and quickly. Their Facebook page reports that there have been over 500 million connections used that were made solely by using their app in a single year.
The company takes advantage of a cellphone’s global positioning system that lets their users look for as well as find many other users that are located within the general radius of each other. While the app does not allow people to find out a user’s precise location, it can still enable connections to be made. All of those who are using the app may choose to decide opt-out of the built location-tracking features that can be found on the app. The GPS location technology used here is only enabled by those users who are part of the the adult community and not under a certain age. This is designed to help people avoid inappropriate contacts with minors that may occur without the parent’s permission. While someone who is using the system to look for people, they can decide to see detailed profiles as well as recent activities of various users that they might find interesting and might have in common with them. This particular application also allows the users who are working with to contact others they want to potentially hook up with to use instant messaging or even send charming and thoughtful virtual gifts to another user. Safeguards are in place to help make sure that app can segregates all adult and teen communities who are using it at any one time. The Skout app is currently available in 180 countries with plans for expansion into others as well in the near future. Users can choose to communicate with other uses in fourteen different languages. Skout has been tweeting out plans recently to introduce more language options in the future to enable international travelers to make even better connections with each other.
Skout also has a specific travel feature that is designed to allow all of their users to meet people in another city even while they are traveling their temporarily. Skout Travel is only available as a premium feature that requires a user to pay an extra fee. Another feature that is available on Skout is known as the “Shake to Chat.” This particular feature allows people to connect with others who are shaking their phones as they are doing so. This can be another fun way to connect with others in their community.
