Skout: The Dating/Friendship App That Will Have You Wanting More

Skout is unlike most other social apps that are in the same category. It emerged on the scene with the goal of doing something different from what the others had already accomplished. It did not take long for people to start to notice this little app that could, and suddenly Skout was the hottest thing out there for those who wanted to connect with others.

Creating a profile on Skout is simple and free. The design of the app is made convenient for those who are trying to use it while they are on the go. Since most people are using apps as they are out and about in the world, it is no wonder the designers of this one in particular wanted to appeal to that crowd.

Once a new member has joined, he or she can search for other people in their area or around the world that are in their desired age range. Doing this means that users are quickly able to identify and find people who are potential partners for them when it comes to meeting them for romantic purposes. At the same time, some simply use Skout as a way of making and meeting new friends. Either purpose is completely legitimate.

People who are on Skout (Huffingtonpost.com) can use some of the cool functions that it has such as “Shake To Chat”. This is a function whereby someone logged into the app on their phone can shake the phone in order to chat with another member who is also shaking their phone at the same time. It may seem like an unlikely way to meet someone, but with so many members on the app, it is easy for two people to find each other in this way. The next thing you know, you are locked into an instant chat with someone else.

Skout has a quirky side to what it does as well. There is no question that its policy to ban bathroom selfies for example is targeted at a certain audience. Namely, that audience are those who are fed up with seeing such pictures all throughout the Internet everywhere else. Since that number is large, it is understandable why Skout would want to prohibit this kind of activity from its own app. It wants to stand out and show the world that it is different from other apps. This is the way to do it.
