Yodel, a new Windows Phone 8.1 app, has just been released. It's also the first third-party app to support the Yik Yak social media network, which lets users send and read anonymous messages to anyone within a 10 mile radius of their current location.
As you might imagine, Yik Yak has a big following on college campuses. Here's what the developer behind the Yodel app says users can do with it:
- Read and vote on yaks posted by your friends, classmates, and neighbors!
- Comment on yaks and join in on the conversation
- Post yaks of your own
- Sort feeds by new/hot
- View the top yaks in your area and the greatest yaks of all-time
- Peek at featured and popular yak feeds
- Reset your user ID to protect your anonymity
The Yodel developer says that the app will be updated in the future to add more features, including "peek anywhere", custom color themes, notifications, lefty mode, and more. Keep in mind this app is just for Windows Phone 8.1 devices.
