Meeting people while on the go can be difficult. Outside of possibly whomever is located at the hotel bar, trying to make friends while traveling may prove difficult for some. That is exactly why Skout is a helpful application that can work with people and connect them with others from around the world. In fact, it has the potential to connect a user with millions of other people around the world, and as a free application, it is never going to cost anything and it puts the power of connectivity into the hands of every single person. So, while there are always going to be possible options for meeting people in person, this application makes it that much easier with the few swipes of a smart phone.
So how does this application make it easier for travelers to meet other people? It is a pretty simple creation process. Once someone downloads the application onto their mobile device, such as an Android or Apple mobile phone, they just need to create a profile. The profile creation process consists of a picture (or a few), a small blurb about the individual and then just a few search basics. That really is it and it is then possible for the individual to get their application profile up and running and connect with other people.
How it Connects
The Skout application works off of the GPS inside of the mobile device. With the GPS signal, it only shows an individual other people who are living or at least currently in the general area. This way, it is now possible for someone such as yourself to connect with these individuals. When you power on the Skout application you’ll see a listing of everyone else in the area. You can set your search field to bring up people who meet a certain demographic. Perhaps you are looking to meet a person of the opposite sex or you don’t mind who you are interacting with. No matter who it is or what you feel like searching for, Skout is able to help you connect with that individual.
Sometimes you just don’t feel like paging through all sorts of different individuals found on the application. Sometimes you just want a quick and easy way to communicate with these individuals and to find someone. That is where the shake search feature comes into play. This is a fun little option that makes it possible to instantly connect with someone. With the search feature open, an individual just needs to shake their mobile device and it automatically connects with someone. They can they feel free to message that individual or they can just shake their phone and connect with someone else again. So, it is an easy option for someone who is traveling around the world, throughout the country or who is just visiting a different town and wants to be able to meet other people in the area. The Skout application makes all of this possible.
