Yo! The App that, Well, Sends a "Yo!"

There's a new app out there for mobile phones that will send a friend of a loved one a message for you via push notification.  The message is not configurable; it is a simple push of one word - "Yo."

Simple?  They don't get more simple.  So how is it that developers of this simple app just got rewarded with $1,000,000 of private equity funding?

Either there is a long development pipeline of potential augmentation of this technology, or somebody really likes saying "yo." 


Please feel free to include any thoughts you may have. Know, however, that kiddos might be reading this, so please keep the adult language to yourself. I know, for me to ask that language is clean is a stretch...
