Yo App Raises $1 Million

LINDA WERTHEIMER, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Linda Wertheimer. Yo, Renee.

RENEE MONTAGNE, HOST:

WERTHEIMER: There's a new phone app. It's called Yo. It allows you to chat to a friend but the only word you can use is yo. That's literally all Yo does.

It all depends on you, the recipient and the time of the yo. OK, it's MORNING EDITION. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
