Yo and the app hype machine
Yo is a notifications app the place all it does is ship the phrase “Yo” to your mates. That is it. Simply “Yo.” In fact, foolish single-objective apps like these are a dime a dozen — keep in mind these fart apps of previous? — however the factor that units Yo aside is that it is truly attracted an entire lot of consideration. Greater than one million dollars’ value, actually. Yep, this seemingly frivolous app has lately raised round $1.5 million in funding, giving it a valuation near $10 million. It is also apparently been downloaded greater than 2 million occasions since its tongue-in-cheek April Fools’ Day debut.
Loopy? Nicely, sure, maybe. However it’s not completely uncommon. In case you want a refresher (and doubtless amusing or two), this is a take a look at a number of the extra overhyped apps prior to now few years. Have another concepts? Depart a remark and tell us of any apps we have missed.
