New York City Singles Flock to SKOUT in Droves In Search of a Summer Fling

Super sexy dating app SKOUT.COM- the first of its kind for the iPhone- has just been anointed the #1 way for New Yorkers to hook-up this summer. Since Memorial Day weekend, the unofficial start of summer, more than 75,000 New Yorkers signed up for SKOUT in hopes of finding "location based love" in both New York City and the Hamptons. With this newest crop of members included, there are now over 350,000 New Yorkers looking to flirt and meet for free on SKOUT.

SKOUT works like a hook-up GPS. Using iPhone technology, the app identifies singles in your immediate vicinity and gives you the opportunity to flirt and meet up with them. SKOUT makes it easy to meet other like-minded singles while tanning in Central Park, at Happy Hour, or weekend-ing in the Hamptons or Fire Island. No matter your interests, SKOUT helps you fine tune your dating opportunities. Art lovers can meet at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, sports lovers can meet at Yankee stadium, and animal lovers can meet at The Bronx Zoo. Location based love works! According to founder Gary Kremen, "SKOUT is perfectly positioned to disrupt the online dating market. SKOUT represents what all dating companies must become to not only just remain relevant, but to survive."

With the influx of New Yorkers joining the revolutionary site in the last month alone, SKOUT has yet another reason to celebrate. SKOUT has just reached their 1 millionth member, David Gerber, 25, an investment banker who lives downtown and goes by the username "StockyBroker." According to Gerber, "Many of my friends had already joined SKOUT and met girls through it. There is no downside to anything that makes meeting women easier during the summer time when so many people are leaving the city every single weekend." No wonder the average user spends 40 minutes on SKOUT per day.

Those using iPads, laptops, desktops, or any phone with a mobile browser can also use SKOUT to flirt and meet up this summer. SKOUT's Founder, 29 year old Christian Wiklund believes, "New York is the perfect place to use SKOUT. In a city that doesn't sleep, you can literally find love anywhere at any time." New Yorkers can expect to see fireworks all over the city this July 4th weekend as thousands of singles meet up through SKOUT.
