The old yik yak They really dropped the ball with this update... adding profiles was bad but at lease we could choose whether to yak anonymously or not; now it's basically shi**y twitter. Also no hot yaks anymore! Oh and the app is so American centered, it is not appealing to the international audience who doesn't want to view two random schools because they have some football game going on
Used to be a big app on my campus and everyone loved it for it's anonymity but with handles and profiles, it's just local twitter and people post maybe once an hour when it used to be several posts per minute. Good job alienating your install base. Totally dead now. Uninstalling for now unlikely that I'll come back if you don't fix this.
Used to be better This app was unique for its anonymity. Even when handles were optional (but not required), it was a one of a kind social network. Now, the anonymity has been stripped from the users. Now, this app is boring and no different than other kinds of social media. Sorry, yak, but you've lost my interest.
Used to be good I previously rated it 4* but since the profile thing was brought in, it's gone down hill. It doesn't bother me having a profile because nobody actually knows who you are unless you tell them. Nobody seems to use it anymore now though, so it's boring.
Too Much The anonymity that yik yak once had is gone now the same group of people stay on while everyone else left. Honestly the updates destroyed this once fun app especially for college kids. Its like another myspace but not as bad.
My Herd is welcome (back), but we still need the option (back) to remain anonymous I don't think you can ruin this app any more. You clearly don't care what your users think either.
We're back at it again with some bug fixes and minor improvements to the app! We've made it easy to find your yaks and replies by moving them to your profile. You can also tap on a user's avatar from a chat thread to view their profile. Enjoy!
