I used to love this app, the ability to talk to people in my herd while away from Uni and talking ANONYMOUSLY online was great. Hell I didn't even mind handles but removing both these features and pressuring people to link their social media to their profile is just terrible. Take the app back one year and I'd give it 5 stars. Bring herds back, make handles optional and most importantly, listen to your customers because you done goof lads
It was good but... Why the sudden change in ethos? If this was designed for college and uni students to be anonymous and share thoughts then why expose them. Please bring back some of the old features (my herd, removing handles) to keep the users happy. Thanks.
It's not a bad app. Kind of fun (after ignoring the stupidity Sexism and bullying)However I feel that it's really stupid that if you post something not offensive but people disagree with you and down vote you enough, your yak gets deleted. I don't care about the down vote thing but I think it's unfair that the yak gets deleted. Everyone should have a voice even if it's something we don't agree with. Yes. Even the people I disagree with deserve to have a voice and not have their opinion/comment/yak deleted.
When handles came out, I said "At least you can choose not to use your handle." I don't know when this update took place but since I can't NOT use my handle anymore I went and uninstalled. This app is now CLEARLY headed in a direction I don't like. -EDIT- they've made handle posting optional again lol
On my old phone I had my university as my default herd. I can't set my university as my default herd anymore and it's annoying. I can still set it as a herd in my searches, but not as my default herd. And I can't transfer my old Yakarma over to my new phone, which sucks because I had a bunch of chats on my old one and I lost my Handle. It's really annoying to start over and not even be able to join the University herd.
Fix the damn herd radius. I'm on here because I want to see what the people in my hometown and at my community college are talking about. I don't want to see a flood of posts from two cities over, or from the university at the far end of the city next door.
Update time! We’ve squashed some bugs and made a few general improvements to the app. Oh yeah, you can now share GIFs in chat. Happy yakking!
