Seriously, where do people come up with these things and why do people even bother purchasing the app? What a strange world we live in.
Yo is a simple messaging app that allows you to send a simple “Yo” to anyone on your phonebook. That’s pretty much all it does. So if you find it hard to type the letters Y and O, then this app is right up your alley.
