There’s a messaging app that’s even more ridiculous than Yo

If you think Yo is one of the silliest apps ever created — although some people might find certain special uses for it — you’d be wrong, because at least with Yo, you can sort-of communicate with your friends. The silliest messaging app ever created might be Ethan, available as a free download from the App Store, that only serves one strange purpose, and that’s to communicate with Ethan… and Ethan alone.

You can still win a free Moto 360 with a Yo, as company apologizes for epic contest fail

Motorola has decided to use the viral, yet-not-really-necessary, Yo “messaging” app to promote the upcoming Moto 360 smartwatch, and offer 20 lucky fans the chance of winning the device during the promotion. All a smartphone user had to do to try and win the gorgeous Moto 360 was to simply send a “Yo” to Motorola, but the contest ended badly for many participants, and now the company wants to make up by giving away an extra batch of Moto 360 units.

Now you have an awesomely stupid way to get the gorgeous Moto 360 before anyone else

It’s an unlikely pairing: The world’s smartest looking smartwatch and the world’s stupidest mobile app. And yet they have indeed teamed up, because mobile app Yo has just announced that “Motorola is going to use the Yo platform to release their long awaited Moto 360 smart watch.” And yes, this promotion is just as awesomely stupid as you think it is.

This is the only Yo knockoff you should even think of downloading

Yo is easily the stupidest $1 million app the world has ever seen, but it’s at least spawned some amusing knockoff projects. Or more precisely, it’s spawned one amusing knockoff: Yo Hodor. As Business Insider points out, there’s a new app out there that takes the basic Yo concept and applies it to Hodor, the lovable giant from HBO’s hugely popular Game of Thrones series who’s known for saying only one word: “Hodor.” More →

Yo App For iOS Android Hacked

The stupidest $1 million app ever has already been hacked

The stupidest $1 million app ever has already been hacked

Who would have thought that the stupidest $1 million app in world history would have shoddy security? Yo, the inexplicably dumb new messaging app that was created in just eight hours and has raised $1 million in funding, has already been hacked by college students at Georgia Tech. As TechCrunch reports, the students figured out how to get any Yo user’s phone number and then use it to spam out an infinite number of “Yo’s” to anyone in their contacts. Basically, the Georgia Tech kids have discovered how to take an app that’s already annoying and make it even more annoying. More →

Why Would Anyone Use Yo

The stupidest $1 million app ever has already driven one man insane

The stupidest $1 million app ever has already driven one man insane

The Internet this week has been buzzing about the rise of Yo, the incomparably stupid new mobile app that has raised more than $1 million and whose sole purpose is to let you send a message that just reads “Yo” to your friends. In fact, Yo is such a flat-out brain-dead idea that it’s inspired iMore’s Derek Kessler to do the one thing no one should ever do with apps like these: Think about their broader implications for the future of the human race.

Yo App for iPhone

The most useless viral iPhone app ever was made in just 8 hours

The most useless viral iPhone app ever was made in just 8 hours

Yo is a very silly iPhone app that does one thing – well, not including Easter Eggs – and that’s to send a simple, short “Yo” message to friends. While that sounds very silly, apparently plenty of users downloaded the app and are sending Yos every which way. To date, more than 4 million Yos have been sent by the over 50,000 users that downloaded the app. However, even though it has been released on April 1, the app is not a joke, and the developer behind it convinced an investor to give him $1 million for the app, Think Progress reports.
