Yo has been quite a bit in the news lately. Mainly because it got a lot of investment, which surprised and shocked some people because it all seems too simple. Yo only allows you to send a Yo notification to other users. However, it has a lot of potential to become big while staying that simple. After reading Why A Stupid App Like Yo May Have Billion-Dollar Platform Potential a few days ago I felt it was time to play around a bit with Yo and it's API.
I came up with 3 very simple use cases that should be simple to solve with Yo:
- Get a Yo when it's time to have lunch when I'm at work
- Get a Yo when I forgot to check out from my parking App
- Get a Yo when a new blog post is published here on the Xebia Blog
