There’s an App for That

Smart phones are truly amazing. They can suggest restaurants, predict the weather, and remind you of an upcoming dentist appointment. Smart phones are like having a personal assistant in your pocket. Now, thanks to the popular Skout app, your phone can also be your social matchmaker.

Making new friends can be difficult and stressful. With the Skout app, a person can find nearby people with similar interests. Have you recently moved? Make new friends with Skout. Traveling alone in a strange city? Use the application’s travel feature to make new friends. The app is available in over 180 countries so, no matter where you roam, you can find friends.

Skout is not limited to making new friends; it can also introduce possible romantic partners. Many people are turning to online dating sites to find true love. The most common problem is location. Often times the most compatible matches are far away and a long distance relationship is difficult at best. Skout solves that problem with ease by only showing you nearby users.

Skout uses the GPS on a cell phone to locate users near you. You can then browse online profiles and recent activities to determine if someone is compatible with you. Skout offers instant messaging to allow users to become comfortable with a person before meeting. The app also offers virtual gifts that users can send each other as a way to break the ice.

Teenagers are using the application as well. Rest assured the two age groups are carefully segregated. Also, the GPS function is disabled on teen accounts for additional safety. Teenagers often have difficulty making friends at school. Also, most teenagers are more comfortable texting than talking. So Skout allows young people to make friends in a way that is acceptable to them.
