Smartphones have made communication much easier and more entertaining than anyone could have ever anticipated; this collection of alternative chat apps show why. In an era of texting and instant messaging, programmers have continued to come up with interesting ways to make interacting with others via devices more experiential.

Case in point, the 'Yo' app. As far as alternative chat apps go, this one definitely takes the cake. It provides a surprisingly simple form of communication through a single word, Yo. Granted, many people would question the validity of such a word to begin with. Whether appealing to millenials or other specific groups, these alternative chat apps ensure people stay connected in one way or another.
