Revolutionary dating app reaches 1 millionth member and breaks into profitability.

Super sexy dating app SKOUT has officially become the #1 way for singles to meet up this summer. The first dating app for the iPhone has just reached its one millionth member and broke into profitability. According to SKOUT's Founder 29 year old Christian Wiklund, "We are thrilled to announce more than 200,000 people have signed up for SKOUT in the last 30 days bringing our membership total to one million! Now it will be easier than ever for our users to find Location Based Love out at a restaurant, the putting green, the dry cleaners, or even the DMV." SKOUT operates like a flirting and 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. Though the app is free to use, members have the option of purchasing virtual gifts, premium memberships, or sending "wink bombs" which reach up to 500 potential sweethearts in your area at once. Skout's revolutionary technology has finally fused the virtual dating world with the real world making all other dating sites seem as antiquated as a personals ad.

SKOUT's 1 millionth member is David Gerber, 25, an investment banker who lives in New York City and goes by the user name "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." Over one million messages are sent on Skout per day and the average user spends 40 minutes per day seeking a fun flirtation. No wonder Skout's membership and engagement numbers have grown at least 25% month for the past 7 consecutive months. According to a survey, over 51% of members report successfully meeting up with another Skouter.
