There are now tons of developers competing to create the best way to share and view moments in the form of video from friends, but Yo Stories takes an ultra-simple approach to this idea.

The app puts a premium on context over content, sharing video from friends with only a timestamp. As the creators of Yo Stories describe: "Your friends can see what you’re up to without having to swipe through scribbled selfies."

Yo Stories is a follow-up to Yo, a pared-down messenger app that only allows users to message "Yo" to one another as a means of checking in. The creation of this app years ago inspired the creation of several other parody apps; perhaps Yo Stories has the potential to do the same.
