Skout Adds Addictive Shake-to-Chat Feature
Social mobile networking app Skout released an updated version for iPhone and iPad that now includes an addictive ‘Shake to Chat' feature, which connects users to someone nearby for a quick chat, helping community members meet someone completely new.
Just tap Shake to Chat on the side menu and get shakin'! When you enter Shake to Chat and shake your phone, you'll be put into a conversation with another person who is shaking too. Your profiles will be anonymous for the first 40 seconds, after which your profilels will be revealed and you can choose wether you want to continue to conversation or be a social butterfly and just keep shaking.
WARNING: Always Shake with caution...We all remember when the Wii came out and there were game-related injuries! We recommend giving yourself a 3 foot safety radius when using Shake to Chat!
In addition to ‘Shake' Skout has bolstered Chat with more content-sharing options like sending photos, gifts, and smileys.
Skout is all about helping people meet and make new friends and our community is highly engaged, logging in an average of eight times a day to chat with an average of over 400 million chats happening on Skout every month. While Facebook keeps us in touch with current friends, a recent Harris Interactive survey commissioned by Skout found that the majority of U.S. adults (54%) want to make new friendships - and Skout is here to help!
Shake to Chat is available on Skout, BoyAhoy, and Flurv on iOS devices.This release is also iPhone 5 and iOS 6 compatible.
