Bored of Foursquare? Try Scout, Playboy’s New Geo-Local App

playboy scout Bored of Foursquare? Try Scout, Playboys New Geo Local AppLooking for a classy place to spend a boys’ night out this weekend?

Playboy hopes you’ll turn to their new geo-local app, Scout, for suggestions.

As Kara Swisher notes, this is an attempt by the ailing media company to break into the digital world.

Like Foursquare, Scout uses GPS to make recommendations to users about where they should go.

And because it’s a Playboy promotion, users get invites, deals and perks … ahem, that normal folks wouldn’t.

Surprisingly, Scout will only be available on Android for now. Perhaps Playboy didn’t feel like submitting to Apple’s rigorous moral testing in order to get their app approved?
