Review Yo

Jay Feldman
6.1Good
Minimalist design
Texting is better
Yo for Android takes minimalism to the extreme. With one tap, send a "yo" to your friends. That's it.
Yo is a gimmick at best. The one and only function is to literally send a "yo" to anyone on your contact list. The hitch is, they need to have this app installed and running too, otherwise, there's no yo to be had by anyone. The interface is very colorful and modern looking. Account setup is very fast and easy; just a few simple text input fields and you're off and yoing.
There's virtually nothing to do here if you don't have any friends to do it with. So send a bunch of invites and ask people to download yet another app for no other reason than to send them a "yo." I'm confused; isn't that just called texting? Only in this instance, you're literally saying nothing. Think of yo as poking your friend with a virtual finger to get their attention. It's kind of a conversation starter, not the conversation in and of itself. But what do I know? Maybe yo is all people have to say to feel like they're having a satisfying relationship. Personally, if all I got to say to you is "yo" then you probably weren't much of a friend to me to begin with.
The interface is clean and simple, because there's virtually nothing to it; just a couple big, fat, colorful buttons. Oh, and there's a widget, so you can get push notifications of that burning response you've been waiting for; you know the one ....Yo. Gee thanks for clearing that up, people, I was sitting here wondering what was on your mind and I'm so glad you interrupted my day to tell me. Thanks!
Yo is utterly useless. But as Barnum and Bailey once said, there's a sucker born every minute. Here's a text for ya: Yo = You're Obnoxious; now please stop pestering me with this pathetically stupid app.
