Yo — two letters, and an app premise so initially silly it makes even veteran yo-er Xzibit hesitate. But we can explain. (Via Know Your Meme)
Yo is an app that does exactly what it says on the tin. Press button, send a "yo" message to someone on your contacts list.
It took developer Or Arbel eight hours to code. According to ThinkProgress, it's so simple, Apple rejected it from the app store the first time around because the quality assurance guys thought it was unfinished.
