Skout dating app

The app acts as a matchmaker, friend finder, and chat-roulette style messenger, ensuring all types of companion-seekers will find someone that suits their personality.

This can be great for people who are new in town , traveling alone, or just looking to expand their circle of friends, and because the app shares an approximate location, users can find a companion anywhere from a local bar to a tourist attraction while traveling. With many different features to choose from -- seeing what locals are up to, chatting with a stranger from the other side of the world, or just perusing the photos of those nearby -- Skout is geared towards making friends more so than finding a date but all types of relationship building is encouraged.

Because Skout members looking for friendship can be as young as 13 years old, safety is a high priority to them.
