The Most Pointless App Ever, YO!
And nothing else.
In case you need another messaging platform in your life, thereâ€™s now a new app that lets you tell your friends â€œYo.â€ Thatâ€™s all it does.
The new app, appropriately titled â€œYo,â€ doesnâ€™t require you to sign up via Facebook. It doesnâ€™t try to hoard your data to later serve you ads (yet). It doesnâ€™t offer voice calling or disappearing images or the ability to send people smells. It literally just allows you to send the word â€œYoâ€ to other people. The main screen is a list of a userâ€™s friends. Press a name and the friend gets a â€œYo.â€ The app bills itself as a â€œsingle-tap zero character communications tool.â€ The simplicity introduces a â€œwide-open scope for personal interpretation,â€ according to the Financial Times.
The app, programmed in eight hours, has attracted 50,000 users who have sent about four million Yoâ€™s since it launched, FT reports. Investors have kicked in $1 million in venture funding. An app that doesnâ€™t do anything besides let you send the word â€œYoâ€ to other people may be the most promising startup since that messenger that was made exclusively for people eating at Applebeeâ€™s.
