What's New in Version 4.0.4
It was good! But then...
This app was good and fun to use at first with few problems. I enjoyed the refreshing features it had and how much exposure you could receive. Although my experience was distraught when I was randomly logged out of my account and was never able to log back in even after resetting my password. I kept getting the error message over and over again when logging in with my new password and email, and with my Skout ID. I even deleted the app and reinstalled it but that didn't solve the issues. But the biggest thing that makes me angry is that I emailed Skout Support explaining this and was ignored or they somehow never got my email. It's been about a week and I've got no response or resolution. So I think the customer service/support in parallel with this app is VERY lousy. You've officially lost a user.
Great app... Too many commercials.
This is a wonderful app, but there are too many commercials. Many times a commercial will play and u go back to ur chat then five seconds later another commercial will play. Also, be aware that when u chat there is a delay in loading the banner so that if u immediately click the chat box u will instead load an ad.
Other than that this app is great for casual chatting. Not so much in making real life friends near u, which is why I downloaded it in the first place, based off the ad, but perhaps that's too much to ask for from an app.
Terrible app too many ads
The idea is great, the payment system to see who viewed you is standard but the shake portion has huge flaws.
There should be an ability for Shake to be set to gender and age preferences.
Those are my main critiques
Everything before this I had posted when previously reviewing.
The app now has profiles that send you messages advertising games, every few clicks you have an advertisement pop up, and when you leave the app suddenly you get a shake chat notification, even if you haven't shook within a day.
The app has location issues. It believe I'm in a town 30 miles away and believes "local" is 300 something miles away.
There are better apps out there that at least give honest results and help you find people near you.
