Hey guys, i'm the product manager for Yammo. Feel free to ask me anything or give feedback. We're really just looking for people to use the platform to be creative and a little silly.

Hey @aaron_altscher, here is the basic stream on consciousness I was having when using it: ----- Back button when drawing on picture killed whole drawing. Hit accidentally, not what I was expecting, lost drawing. I was doing something with effects, and I minimized the tray, and now I can't get it back. I did like how once I started adding effects to the picture, when I hit the back button, that it prompted me if I wanted to exit. "Creating gif" took a while. Some might not want to wait for that. Once I send it, it drops me back into share options, then when I close those it drops me back into the picture I just created. If I were using this frequently, I'd more often want to start something new, or I'd be done with that picture and I'd pocket my phone. Now, I'm stuck at the picture I just shared, and either I can close the picture and lose my progress, or I'm stuck here. I don't know what to do. Took me a bit to figure out the visibility slider for effects. If I tap in the middle, the slider doesn't move, I have to grab it on the left, and drag it all the way over. I expected to be able to just tab on the bar and have the slider move. Every time I minimize the effects bar I can't get it back! I have to add another effect to get it back- Oh, I have to tap the item to get the effects back- Why minimizing the bottom bar make the effect I'm adding lose context so I have to click it again, just minimize the bar and let me click an up arrow at the bottom or something to re-pop the effects. Maybe a done button that automatically prompts what I want to do next, like share, save, etc. Why is save under the share options? Upload just made the thing I was working on disappear, didn't expect that to happen- I'm back at the home page, and now it brought up my activity. OK, guess fine, there's my Yammo. I tap to edit it, but I tapped the image instead of the "tap to edit" button and got confused, I thought I could tap anywhere. I went back and got edit options, OK, good. Save it closes the image, but sharing does not? I tried again on another image and it didn't close it. What? ----- I think it has some potential, but I would say think about what you want your user's journey to be through your app and make the path as clear and as easy as possible. I honestly thought it was difficult and if you want teenagers to use this you have to make it stupid easy or script their path to keep them interested. I floundered way too much, and I only kept using it because I wanted to test everything out and make sure I could achieve what you would want me to. If you haven't already, watch 5-10 people use it; I think it'll be enlightening. That's my 2 cents. Let me know if you need more clarification.
