Best Dating App: Skout

Our Best Dating App this week is Skout! Skout is a location-based social networking mobile app and a website.

Skout uses a cellphone’s global positioning system to help users to find like-minded people within a walkable radius of one another. (Don’t worry! For safety reasons, Skout does not identify a user’s precise location.) Those who sign up for the application create basic profiles with photographs and then use an instant message feature to communicate when they are within range of each other. Then, they can arrange a mutual meeting spot.

The service is available to users with position-sensing (GPS, WiFi, etc.) mobile devices such as smartphones.
