Skout is a Friendly Resource

One of the big impacts from the brave new world of smart phones and apps in today’s society is the development of social media. Social media and phone apps are definitely impacting the way in which we make friends and pursue an active social life. Today, many people are working harder and harder and longer and longer, which can make pursuing a social life tough. One of the solutions to this problem is the advent of phone apps geared to connecting like-minded people. That’s where Skout comes in.

A story in Adweek covered this new social minded app and how it is being used to connect people to new friends. Skout can be downloaded for free from the App store, and its users can sign in using their Facebook profile or an email address.

Getting the Buzz

The main page of Skout shows a grid of the faces of people who are currently using the app. A “drawer” feature on the left side of the screen offers several different ways in which a user can browse around on the app. The “Buzz” feature offers a social feed that updates on what people are doing. A “Shake to Chat” feature randomly connects people for conversations, and after the connection is made, shows the users their profiles for review.

Using Points

One of the different features of Skout is the use of points, which are a kind of currency on the app. These points, which are purchased by the user, allow for a more intimate view of some of the site’s users, and also for letting another viewer see a bit more of the person’s “backstage” life. Points can also be used to allow for sending “winks” with the “Winkbomb” feature.

Skout is a fun to use app that will definitely go a long way towards making people a bit more connected and friendly online, and it looks to be a good addition to the user friendly social apps available now.
