Yo - The new zero-character communications tool that lets you say nothing but "Yo". And it's got $1 million in funding as well. I just signed up and "YOed" my colleague 5 times - pretty cool design and good fun. It even shouts "Yo" out loud on your phone when you get a new Yo.
It seems to have a lot of early doubters and you can kind of understand why - but sure Twitter makes no real sense either and look where it is now! The fact that they are opening it up to developers means it might just have a chance. I quite like the idea of other services integrating Yo. Maybe we could do it here at Passle so that every time their is a new Passle post waiting for you to read - you get YOed!
Looking forward to see how this one pans out ....
P.S. Gee - it sure is hard to write a post about Yo without saying Yo at least 20 times. So just one more time ..... Yo!
The app was created back in April in just eight hours by Moshe Hogeg and Or Arbel (seven of those hours were spent ruling out ‘hey’, ‘hi’, and ‘what’s cracka-lacking’ as messaging options)
