Forget sitting in front of your computer for hours looking for a date or a mate.
Skout capitalizes on its users' smartphone GPS technology to find someone near them while they're out and about.
Skout is a mobile-social network designed to allow its users to meet new people, make friends and exchange pictures.
Users may sign up either using Facebook or their email address, and must then populate their profile with basic information including whether they are interested in men or women — this helps customize the experience by only displaying other people the user might be interested in.
Skout says more than a million messages are sent to its users daily, and the app's average user spends 40 minutes a day using the service [source: Manninen].
