Everything You Need To Know About “Yo,” The New Hot App That Just Got $1 Million Dollars In Funding


There is a new app called “Yo,” you can download it for iOS and Android devices.

1. Yesterday it was announced that it received $1 million in venture capital.

2. The way it works is, you download the app, make a username, and then send other people a small notification that makes a sound that says “yo.”

3. It is yet to be seen if “Yo” will become the next big app, but if early reactions are any indication…
