Skout brings location-based dating to the iPhone

"There are some who view any kind of location–based social networking as creepy. But there are others who see it as the key ingredient to move online social networks into the real world. And one type of network in particular could lead the way: Dating sites. At least, that's what Skout is hoping for with its new iPhone application.

Set to be unveiled this week at the iDate conference in Miami, Skout claims to be the first online dating site with a native iPhone app. That's not entirely true – there are others like Dating DNA – but Skout could prove more interesting due to its emphasis on location and compatibility with other mobile devices.

If you've used any other location–based social networking apps on the iPhone like Loopt or Brightkite, Skout is similar, except that its sole emphasis is on helping you find people to date. After loading the app, you can see others around you who are also running it. If you spot someone who you think you might be compatible with, you can click on their picture to find out more about them, see a stream of their recent activity on the site (like the Facebook News Feed or Wall), look at pictures and comment on posted items, and even chat with them."
