    Acquiring more than a million users, basic functionality of this app is only a single word push notification service "YO". It has raised $1 Million in seed funding. To some it looks like Silicon Valley investors throwing money out of a car window and watching penniless entrepreneurs scramble for cash to fund their do-nothing app.

    The past few weeks have been incredible for "YO", as it gained more momentum and popularity among people, who discovered how easy it is to stay in touch with just a "YO".

    This has got to be the by far most useless app/service ever. oO I'm apparently not hipster enough for it. :D

    Hate all you want, but the app is good. If you know how to use it ofc.
    Just too bad it's not THAT popular yet, only 2-3 of my friends have it.

    Please enlighten me. What is good about being able to send someone a YO and nothing else?

    This an app for people who think they are cool, but are not. Being cool is not about following millions of other people doing the same thing!!!!
    In fact, it's the complete opposite.... I weep for the future of humanity!!!!

    Maybe they are doing it 'ironically' LOL.......

    You want to buy some weed from your dealer, just YO him and he knows what's up.
    YO him again, and he knows you're at the place.

    Well ofcourse, it's not THAT APP THAT WILL SAVE US ALL AND PUT WP TO #1!
    But it's a fun little app, with whom people are having fun. Don't like it, don't use it.
    It's better to have it and have the option to use it or not, than not to have it.

    "finally arrives on Windows Phone"

    While its always nice to see more apps enter the store, this is one app I'd rather not even bother with. Yo, Hodor, wonder what other new wacky & totally pointless apps are going to come in future, while the real necessary apps are still missing or broken.

    That argument is not valid anymore. I'm sure I might use a 6th finger, doesn't mean I should have one.
    You have to draw the line somewhere, and I think that line has been reached....
    Yo????? Jesus!!!!!!

    This app's existence is irrelevant and a credit to people too lazy to make 3 taps on a screen. Yes I've never used it, yes I'm bashing it based on reviews, no I'm not going to change that, and yes random person who will surely respond to this, I'm sure I'm an ignorant troll/consumer and/or missing the point/too stupid to see the usefulness/"hatin". Hope I saved you the trouble. I also admit I'm wasting mine/your time. Now go enjoy the app you one touch wonders.

    The amount of judgement people make based off someone's use of an App is pretty laughable. I'm saying this as someone who doesn't use the App being discussed.

    Especially the part about using it to try and be "cool" because other people do it. That defines the entire existence of social media...

    Haven't met that kind of guy yet :D
    Anyway, ofc, that was a joke, but it don't tell me you havent been in a situation where you know what the other person wants with just a simple signal (a YO in this case).
    It will never replace IMs, SMSes and Calls, but it's a simple little app which is enough for some.

    Sure I know these situations, but I'd still rather use Whatsapp or similar. Certainly not a dedicated app for a single purpose with no real benefit.

    I'm sorry but Yo, is not, and will never be in my vocabulary. If I said 'Yo' to anyone, I know, they would punch me in the face!!! Lol...
    Maybe it's an American thing??? I thought so....

    "Yo'ing" can be done by this really neat, functional, and well developed app that has auto correct and a dictionary built into it. It's called SMS. It even comes built into the phone so you don't have to waste space installing a separate app. As for what its done against humanity, you need not look any further than the first word in this post, which is helpfully outlined in quotation marks. Everything about turning a greeting into a verb is a crime against everyone involved.
