I love this because it recommended my old local bar Wohnzimmer ๐Ÿ˜
@erd_so Yeah, thatยดs a great one ๐Ÿ˜„ https://yobo-app.com/places/5775...
@tobias_szarowicz It seems very Berlin based right now, London searches didn't return much ๐Ÿ˜ž I guess it's still WIP?
@erd_so Yes, Berlin is our starting point, but right after Berlin comes London, with roughly 100 something shared Happy Places. Besides that we see in London the highest organic growth by now. At this moment we focus on genuine user generated content to see if people are willing to share pics on our app like they do it on Instagram. Because we are using image recognition to get data about each spot (and translate it into emojis ;) its also the saver way to store these images on our servers, so we can use them to train our personalization AI. Would be awesome if youยดd share some of your Happy Places. Since I know you like Wohnzimmer, I believe youยดve got a pretty nice taste ๐Ÿ˜ƒ
Thx @chrismessina for hunting us โค๏ธ Hey producthunters๐Ÿ‘‹ Tobi here, one of the makers of YOBO. Weโ€˜ve build YOBO to make finding, sharing and rating places easy and fun ๐Ÿ˜œ Would love to hear your Feedback & thoughts ๐Ÿ˜‡ Works in Berlin, Hamburg, London, Copenhagen, Amsterdam, NY, LA and Miami ๐Ÿ“ We basically think that emojis allows us not only to display all information about places visually - using no text at all - but also to learn better about how our users feel at different places. So we can make these feelings searchable: Use ๐Ÿค— to find something happy, use ๐Ÿ’ฉ to find something shitty or hit ๐Ÿ• to just get a nice slice of pizza. We think itโ€™s not your friends, nor ratings, nor any local guides which decide on where to go - itโ€™s your personal feelings ๐Ÿ˜Š

Super fun to look at emoji clouds and to discover places based on emojis, instead of having to read endless reviews and comments and star ratings.

Pros:

Greatest way to explore and recommend places in a visual way - with emojis !

Cons:

Coverage is still growing, as it depends on community

Thx @ralphstenzel ๐Ÿ˜ƒ Working hard on coverage. We use image recognition for getting data out of pictures and to translate it into emojis. So its saver for us to crowdsource the images. Anyways, hope its fun to share a pic rated with 3 Emojis ๐Ÿ˜„
Another ugly project which is completely unnecessary. I wonder why people spend their time to make things that are just useless.
@ariel_jedrzejczak Basically because its fun ๐Ÿ˜„ Anyways, its just v1, so donยดt be so mean bro !
