The app market is a cruel place full of ruthless and unscrupulous developers willing to do anything to make a quick buck and even if it means ripping other developers off wholesale.
Thus, the news comes as no surprise that popular messaging app Yo has allegedly been copied by several apps, many of which have even better names like Yolo, Oi, YoFrom and even Yo, Hodor.
Yo which is a pioneer of the concept has spawned many clones, though most of them offer something slightly different, some of them are a complete replication of the Yo app, pointed out its creators.
Such has been the copying that even the App Store description was copied word by word. The creators said, the improvement of the technology is welcome, but not copying it bit-by-bit.
Apple is sending notices to Yo’s accused copycats, and some have already been taken down including the Game of Thrones-themed parody Yo, Hodor!
