Love it, except for when it glitches
By the silent rose
I have never had a problem with this app until just recently, in fact I have been in love with this ever since I gotten it. I love the idea of getting random questions, answers, an the thrill of not knowing who it is. But just recently I have been getting a glitching problem. After putting up one of these on my story I would only get one response, but then later I would have multiple people asking why I didn’t respond or answer what they sent. Thinking this was just a one time glitch or internet thing (even though i have great WiFi) I moved on and posted one the next day but the same thing happened again. Only getting one response but others upset that I had not seen their’s. I have now reset the app deleted, reloaded and tried anything to get these messages but I still seem to be only getting one. This is a bit upsetting especially since I love the thrill of this app, I sincerely hope this will be fixed soon.
Pretty Good :)

Honestly I really like Yolo. It’s a fun app to ask questions on your Snapchat story and interact with your friends. I like the consistent updates and features being added often.
However, sometimes people like to bully others and that’s never fun. I posted a simple question asking people about their crushes as a fun little game. Then there was one or more people that were harassing me about a boy I’m talking to.
I reported each message that was abusive, and I thought at the very least the person would be revealed to me. Sadly that wasn’t the case and I’m assuming that the messages are under review. You’ve never made it quite clear how the reporting system works and what happens if the person you reported is actually found to be abusive. I would like further feedback on that please.
Overall Yolo is a good app. I hope you guys take the bullying seriously and actually review the messages that are reported. Thank you!
Could Be Better
This app was originally working well, however after I’d had it for about 2 weeks it began sending me notifications for messages, then the messages weren’t showing up in my inbox. I’m not sure if the notifications were glitches, or if I actually am getting messages and the app just won’t let me view them, because it does occasionally show a message. Other then that, the app has been great. I can ask my friends questions, get anonymous compliments, and for the most part, my experience has been rather positive (aside from a few jokes made by my best friend, but she’s always like that). To be fair, I know a lot of people have been sent inappropriate or rude messages on here, so I would be cautious if you think you would be offended by rude anonymous messages. Overall, YOLO is a decent app and a good way to connect with people, but it does need improvements and may not be good for everyone. I hope this helps!
Pretty good...except for anon messages
Yolo is a pretty fun thing to use when you are bored...or possibly lonely. I’ve been using it for a while, and recently there has been something bugging me. The anonymous ghost messages on the group chat are fun to use, however sometimes it gets out of hand. In a few group chats people have been using the ghost messages to cyberbully people by calling them fat, ugly, gross and such and sometimes even to kill themselves. This makes me extremely angry because I don’t think anyone should be saying this, especially anonymous. I think it would be practical that if someone sends an outrageous message like that, getting flags would result in a ban? It’s a suggestion that I think would help keep people safe, and these messages hurt. I am a pre-teen and I know kids my age are going to take these comments personally. I just want everyone to stay safe.
Randomly stopped working?

Yolo is a really fun and new way to communicate with the people who view your snap story and I was having a lot of fun using it for a couple of weeks but then randomly it would send me notifications and I’d go to my inbox and they’d all be old messages and there would be no new one’s. At first I thought it was because I had to many undeleted messages, so I deleted the dozens of ones that I had already replied to, however that did not fix the problem. The only way I could start seeing the new yolos I was receiving was by deleting and reinstalling the app every time I got a couple new notifications, which is EXTREMELY annoying and inconvenient. Truly hope this gets fixed soon and it can go back to its 5 star rating, because without the glitches or bugs this app really is a 5 star experience
randomly stopped working
By mamsmmmmms skdnf
i love this app a lot , but for some reason i can't revive yolos anymore , this problem has been going on for about 6 months now . i don't get any yolo messages when i post yolos on my story and i even tested it out by sliding up myself and saying something and i didn't get a message . it's really frustrating because i love posting yolos and seeing what people say but now i can't do that anymore . i've deleted it and re downloaded it many times and it still doesn't work . also when other people post yolos i'll slide up and say "tbh-(my first name) (my last name)" but that's never get the message , so i don't know why yolo won't let my name go through !! at first i thought that i might've been banned from the app but i don't use inappropriate language , i have clean content (i don't post anything inappropriate) , i'm NEVER bullying anyone or being mean so i have no idea why yolo just won't work . please fix this problem !!
please stop it with the notifications
a great app - until your sticker runs out of time. YOLO instantly starts spamming you with notifications which you can not disable without disabling every notif for the app, sending one every half hour to 5 hours. messages include: “who’s tryna slide into the dms”, “bruh it’s been a hot minute since your last sticker” (with a crying michael jordan), and tons of messages saying you should post another sticker
i do not want to receive these notifications, and do not appreciate that i cannot disable them while leaving any received message and expired sticker notifications in settings.
in order to stop these notifications i either need to post a new sticker every 24 hours - something story viewers would NOT appreciate - or disable app notifications, which means i also do not get message received notifications, starting a game of turning app notifications off and on.
please, either add a setting to disable this spam, or flat out remove it. i rarely post yolo stickers, meaning i go for weeks with getting notifications that i could make new friends or that my crush is out there waiting for another sticker. it’s tiring and at times infuriating.
Yolo is so amazing and easy to use
Yolo is so easy and fun to use! I love the genius idea of being able to customize your own questions, making it fit your own style, and allow you to make your own choices. Such as, being able to change the Bitmoji avatar stickers,and right your own question for friends to answer, or pick from many question that yolo provides you! It is so amazing and a genius app in general! It’s so easy to use as you just download the app, press connect through Snapchat and press accept then your done and ready to send yolos and get honest opinions from your friends and family!
I really like it!
Yolo is a great way to send anonymous feedback or receive it.
And no, it’s doesn’t use your private information in a harmful way. It’s just like Snapchat, they will keep your information to themselves and never give it away. It is a perfectly safe app.
Now for the bullying part, I can see lots of reviews that hate on this app because of cyber bullying. That’s why you can reveal their identity and report them. As other people in the reviews say such things as, “this is a perfect way to get bullied” or “This is not safe and you should delete this app.” But they’re not true. This app will help you reveal bully’s identity and report hem and get them in trouble. I hope this changes others mind on this app. Thanks!
The app looks sincere, and really it has good intentions. However, this app is just a breeding ground for cyber bullies. The app says that it reports bullying, but I’ve never actually seen it happen. This app gives people the chance to say anything they want, without having to take responsibility for any of it. Many, if not all, of its users are teenagers. If you've met any teenager, you know that they are very immature and do not think before they talk. The same goes for texting. Many people are getting this app to have fun with their friends, and what are they getting? Hate. If I could show you things I’ve received, you would wonder what makes kids think it’s ok to say that. It’s horrible. Another big problem with this is it creates lots of drama. Drama in and out of school. It never goes away. The only way I can think to describe it is toxic. Do not get this app. I repeat DO NOT GET THIS APP!
