Seriously, that’s what using the new hit app “Yo” feels like. After gathering a whopping $1 million dollars from investors, the app that does nothing but say “Yo” to people is gaining serious traction.
 

 

“The way it affects your life is profound,” said Yo creator Or Arbel, apparently with a straight face.

 

After moving from Israel to San Francisco to work on Yo, Arbel is now looking for strategic partners to develop it further.

 

The app itself, an April Fools’ Day joke, took eight hours to develop.

 

Despite techies and office workers having fun Yo-ing each other, market watchers are getting concerned.

 

“That such an app was able to garner any funding at all, let alone a million dollars, has led many tech commentators to decry the “tech investment bubble” that many believe is set to pop,” says The Times Of Israel’s David Shamah.

 

So what do you think about Yo? Stupidly fun, or dangerously stupid? Let us know in the comments below.
