A new mobile app company raised $1 million by offering users what functionality?

Answer: saying “Yo”

by News Staff / June 19, 2014

It reportedly took eight hours to build the app, called “Yo,” which does nothing more than push a notification to another user’s phone that says “Yo.”

The app has 50,000 users who have sent more than 4 million Yos. App creator Or Arbel said he’s already raised $1 million from investors since building the app three months ago.

Yo is available for free on Android and Apple platforms.
