Yo! This popular quick messaging app has been updated for the Apple Watch

The popular quick messaging app Yo has been updated to enable you to chat with yo friends and keep up with yo notifications right on yo wrist.

Indeed, Yo has been updated with support for the Apple Watch, which is scheduled for official release on April 24. This support most notably includes an Apple Watch app that lets you tap to Yo a friend and double tap to Yo your location.

Yo on the Apple Watch also lets you receive locations, photos, links, and other types of Yos (including those from your Yo Store subscriptions) at just the turn of your wrist.

Yo’s extremely simple take on messages and notifications seems like a perfect fit for a device as small and “personal” (to borrow Apple’s adjective) as the Apple Watch. So it’s nice to see that the app has gained support for the Apple Watch ahead of the product’s official launch.

Aside from Apple Watch support, the latest update to Yo adds support for including emoji in all of your Yos by setting your emoji in your profile. It also adds the ability to view all missed Yos from within the app, enhances the stability of the Yo Store, and delivers bug fixes and performance improvements.

Compatible with iOS 7.0 or later, the new version of Yo is available now on the App Store for free. The app is optimized for iPhone and iPod touch.
