If you’re not familiar with Skout, now’s the time to familiarize yourself with this new social friendly app, especially if you love to travel around the world. Skout is an app that enables people from around the world and from all walks of life to connect and share. And it’s not just any social app, it’s considered to be the “leading global app.”
Now the new app includes a new feature, Skout Travel, making it a breeze for travelers to do everything from book reservations to helping you meet new friends in your travel destinations. Thanks to this new app, the stress of finding a place to stay during your overseas travels is reduced and to top it off, you get to meet and connect with new friends while on holiday or vacation.
The app’s new feature has been utilized over 10 million times since its launch. Skout Travel launched a little over a year ago and has since become a favorite for social travelers. According to Skout, their goal is to help users of the popular app to create online communities where they can feel like they’re a part of something and really get involved. They want their users to have the ability to access their newly built community from any place at any time.
According to the co-founder and CEO of Skout, Christian Wiklund, the app’s travel feature is particularly popular with younger adults “who want to experience the world and connect with new friends.” Recent analytics data collected by Skout showed the company where their users are virtually traveling and which users are most likely to access the travel feature.
Data shows that the women of the world are most likely to take a virtual travel with the app. In fact, women are twice as likely to use the app when compared to me. For virtual travelers interested in visiting the United States, the top 5 cities travelers were interested included the country’s island cities such as Los Angeles, Miami, New York, San Francisco, and Seattle.
The top international travel destination for virtual travelers was Hong Kong. Runners up in the top international travel destinations for app users included London, Sao Paulo, Seoul, and Sydney. What’s great about this app for travel lovers is that all they have to do is select a travel destination and then they’re able to instantly connect with other users in that location where they can quickly make new friends. Thanks to the app’s new feature reaching over 10 million uses, Skout is allowing users to use the popular app for free for just 48 hours. This 48 hour time period begins January 15, 2015 – January 17, 2015.
