San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) November 1, 2010
Revolutionary dating & flirting app Skout.com hit another milestone, logging its 2 millionth download! The location based app, which introduces like-minded singles to one another based on proximity, was the very first dating app for the iPhone and the Android. Skout became a pioneer in the location space by using the iPhone’s gps technology and reinventing online dating. Unlike traditional dating sites, Skout allows singles to connect in real time. The average Skouter spends 40 minutes per day Skouting!
According to Skout’s 29 year old Founder Christian Wiklund, “The exponential growth of Skout demonstrates that people in today’s fast paced world are tired of the same old online dating platform which requires weeks of back and forth before an actual meeting takes place. Mobile users are looking for the same instant gratification in their dating life as they’re able to find when looking up what time a movie is playing.”
Skout is free to use but members can pay for extras such as virtual gifts and wink bombs which reach as many as 500 people at once. According to Match.com 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."
