Yo Is Dead, Long Live Yo

Yo Is Dead, Long Live Yo

On an unassuming Winter's night, August 12, 2014, an irreverent, young mobile app named Yo left this world behind for the great, polysyllabic beyond. It was four months old.

Giving in to dark temptation, Yo has updated to include "function" and "multiple uses." With the last, pure Yo only existing in the fathomless blackness of our memories. It is survived by a beloved army of clones: YoFrom, Tap, YOLO, aiYO, and Arnold — in addition to the shell of its former self.

Yo Is Dead, Long Live Yo

Farewell, young Yo. This world knew not what it had.
