Skout is an app designed to help people meet. They may meet for friendship, dating, or other social purposes. Maybe groups of people can connect together to take part in sporting events. No real limits exist on why people can get together through the outstanding social app. Skout is now expanding its reason for existing even further. The company is looking to help people who are suffering from hunger.
Skout has partnered with SF-Marin food bank, and the two hope to feed 20,000 people. Skout has expanded the use of its app so members of the growing community to help make donations. Members who send “virtual bags of potato chips” to friends end up being logged by the Skout app. The management of Skout then takes steps to make real donations based on the virtual ones sent between friends.
Skout seems to always succeed in its endeavors. The San Francisco company was founded in 2007, and the growth has been both consistent and amazing. Reportedly, Skout helped facilitate a half-a-billion connections in 2013 alone. Skout has not exactly stopped growing since 2013. The company has even expanded the number of apps its produces. A group messaging and a nightlife app are two examples. They are pretty popular, too.
Skout’s overall success has been the ability to connect people for scores of social interactions. Interestingly, Skout has put a lot of effort into stressing the travel-oriented benefits of Skout. No one likes to travel alone. Traveling alone means arriving and staying at a destination alone. Through Skout, people with similar interests and hobbies are able to meet up on the trail. Skout’s app platform is very simple and easy to use. This is true for travelers and people who want to meet others in their home region.
Skout apps work on iOS and Android operating systems. That means the app is accessible to the millions upon millions of people who use these operating systems. That alone aids in the growth of the company and its app. Quality and functionality both factor heavily into the popularity of Skout. Now, that popularity does more than just promote social endeavors. The cause of helping fight hunger is being supported as well.
