Chat malfunctioning Private messages won't load at all anymore and I can't send or receive as of last week. Also Yik Yak deleted all of my inbox randomly so all my past convos and contacts are gone. Same phone and same app not sure what happened.
Banned They ban you for no reason. I hate these 'speak freely but don't say this' apps. Also, most normal posts are downvoted to removal cuz, at least where I am, the downvote button is abused. There is no reason posts should be removed. Never, not when you act like an anom free speak typa app. This app seems more focused on shutting people up then anything. I barely use this app now that I have candid. This app is stupid and has no point to exist. Good concept, shot to hell execution.
Impersonation Someone in my feed keeps making accounts close to my handle and starts to threaten the campus and a shoot out. So they banned all the accounts INCLUDING MINE. I have done nothing. Absolutely nothing. Good fight 83k yakarma. Staff is honestly not too bright and to make it easy they banned all the accounts impersonating mine and MINE. Okay. Uninstalled.
It worked well until the latest update. I'm on a samsung galaxy S4 running android 4.4.4. This is as up to date as I can get for my phone, and it should be theoretically compatible. Cleared Cache, data, uninstalled and reinstalled. The phone runs up until it tries to load yaks, and then it crashes.
New Update Ruined It What made Yik Yak great was it's anonymity and simplicity. Now with forced profiles, forced locations, and overhaul of the interface, say goodbye to Yik Yak. The year 2016 claims another victim
Half-anonymity turned the app into a cesspool of hate and targeting. I strongly recommend against downloading.
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!
