That's it. It's that simple! We all know the noise Yo made when it was first around... I wonder if this will have a similar impact. You can check out 'Introducing Yo Status' here @orarbel tell us the story here :)
@bentossell Hi Ben! we are experimenting with various simple communication apps at Yo and emoji statuses is one of our recent ones. The goal here is to have one screen of your best friends with their current status in the simplest way - emojis. Since emojis are text-based it's pretty easy to move them around and update them in many ways - texting, Slack, tweeting etc.. So we've opened the API to allow easy ways for updating and seeing statuses - http://docs.yostat.us We also have an integration with Poncho where it shows the current weather in a single emoji: https://yostat.us/PonchoSF - pretty sweet ๐Ÿ˜Ž
I always loved the simplicity of Yo. A Swarm integration that automatically updates your Yo Status each time you check-in would be ๐Ÿ”ฅ. @orarbel - are there any integrations planned? PS: Follow my status here.
@jackdweck Hi Jack! Thanks! We have an open API for Yo Status here: http://docs.yostat.us - There is also an IFTTT integration: https://ifttt.com/yo_status .. Can't wait to see what integrations you and everyone come up with ๐Ÿ˜„
@orarbel thanks! I just created two recipes for my most frequent check-ins: 1. If new Foursquare check-in at category Coffee Shop, update Yo Status to โ˜•๏ธ 2. If new Foursquare check-in at category Office, update Yo Status to ๐Ÿ’ผ I just tested and it works perfectly. I'll be creating more of these!
Oh so this is where the 1.5mm$ went
I still use Yo daily for real time push notifications. Downloading this now.
Pushd Inc put out one called Steven about a year or so ago, and Apple even featured it. It was simple, location driven, and even passively posted your emoji status with proprietary AI developed by their team (as I was told at the time). But it has since been shuttered. Maybe you can pick up where they left off.
@rueter yup I've talked with @abdur about it ๐Ÿ˜€
@orarbel nice, that's awesome. All the best to you guys.
