The first steps into popularity for a mobile app usually occur on a local level. But the biggest voices in the industry are found within the international stage. These are social networking and media apps which are used by people all over the world. And one of the more exciting aspects of this process is how the public relates to it. Social media app Skout recently added Polish support to their system. And one of the big reasons for this is an existing demand within Poland. Over the past two years alone the number of connections made by Skout users in Poland has grown by 40%. It’s important to remember that this is growth which predates the official support for the language.
There’s good reason why this social media app is so popular even in areas where it’s yet to be localized. One of the big factors in the success or failure of an app is whether it treads new ground or simply rehashes existing ideas. Skout takes on the general idea of meeting new people and sharing interests with each other. But what really differentiates it from anything else out there is the focus on travel. The app is often one of the single most important tools for anyone who really wants to explore the world. A big reason for this involves the nature of living in an area versus being a tourist within it. Tourism tends to be a somewhat impersonal affair. But at the same time it’s understandable why this is such a common experience for many people. It’s simply been the best they could accomplish when seeing a new area. But Skout offers itself up as a solution to this problem. It helps to create connections between all sorts of people who love the idea of travel. This might be between fellow travelers who are new to an area and are eager to share their discoveries. Or it might be between a local or locals who love the idea of showing off their favorite little known treasures to visitors from distant lands.
Skout even has tools which make it easy to provide or receive virtual tours of an area. This can be a fantastic way to decide areas to go to. And it’s often an even better way to make friends in an area that one hasn’t even been to yet. This is one of the single most exciting innovations in social media app technology in recent years for anyone interested in travel. It helps to inform and enrich almost any aspect of travel which one could think of. And this trend should continue as it becomes available in more and more languages.
