YO, what’s up?
When I first heard about this app called YO, it didn’t really spark my attention at first. But after seeing that this app has climbed from the bottom to the top 50 most downloaded apps on iTunes, I immediately became interested in what the fuss was about.
YO has even outranked social media giant Facebook’s latest installment, Slingshot. On Kickstarter.com, YO has raised over $1 million in funding from investors for this project, which is a large amount considering what the app allows you to do
YO is in incredibly simple way to communicate with friends without saying much. You simply download the app onto your smartphone create a username, invite your friends, and you’re on your way. Once your friend has accepted your invite, tap on their username and send them a YO. You can’t send pictures or texts, so there’s no need to worry about spelling mistakes, leaked photo’s, or unintentional flirting. The app available for both iPhone and Android users for free.
