Yik Yak app reviews

  • Company needs to correct fake accounts 1/5

    By Apple cider vin
    YikYak really needs to fix their app since someone in my herd has admitted to cracking the app and having multiple accounts they use to mass downvote and get yaks deleted that they don’t agree with. Until they fix it the rating will remain at 1 star
  • Fix your app 1/5

    By Ahsmdnfhfn
    It is glitching and not even loading up the app, it just exits as soon as I click it. Might be a blessing in disguise though cause there’s literally people making death threats on it and even though multiple people in my heard have reported it to Yik yak (through their email), they decide not to do anything about it.
  • Needs handles 1/5

    By fixthevideo
    Fix the broken moderation.
  • Disappointed 1/5

    By Src1018
    As soon as I loaded the app I click on it and omg all I seen was people cussing talking about blowing loads , pegging, and insects. I WILL NEVER RECOMMEND THIS APP FOR NOBODY!!!
  • Awful 1/5

    By buttermilk2045
    This app does nothing really to stop bullying and harassment as I’ve seen many people being victims of it already. Used to be cool to share ideas, meet people, etc. but now is just a lot of people starting drama because they think just because it’s the internet and anonymous they can say what they want no matter if it affects another person or spread fake gossip about others
  • Unhealthy, broken block feature 1/5

    By M i d k l e
    Yik yak’s block feature does virtually nothing to stop targeted harassment and cyber bullying. I ended up uninstalling the app after someone in my area made death threats against me for over 2 weeks straight even after I blocked this person. Since the block feature doesn’t work, this person would continue to post death threats that I could read in my notifications. I see why this app was taken down 5 years ago. If the block feature isn’t fixed, maybe it deserves to be taken down again.
  • Close. Getting close. 4/5

    By Team_Sexy
    I miss the voluntary handles. The latest update always shows 0 responses whether there are responses or not
  • Trash heard. 1/5

    By daxdeeznutz
    We should be able to appeal our yaks if they get removed for no reason
  • location 4/5

    By AshleeTaylorrrr
    love yik yak!! just wish i was able to move locations and me about to see what other towns are talking about. (i’m just nosey tbh)
  • they banned me lol 1/5

    By cjs2442
    this app is horrible
  • It’s fine 3/5

    By 83838383sssssss
    This app is fun if you’re in a college town but it has a lot of issues. The “community guidelines” enforcement is not very consistent and confusing. You can get told you violated them but they don’t tell you how or what specifically was said to violate them. This app just gets extremely irritating after a while because of this. If it was more consistent maybe it would be better.
  • Great aside from Yakarma 4/5

    By mina-katheriine
    I like that you can post locally and anonymously, and both factors are great. My one issue is more of a bug or tech fix, though. Every time I close out of the app, my Yakarma completely resets to 100. That's it, though :)
  • Apple iPhone 13 4/5

    By RamaHamed
    I can’t access the top tab bc my camera blocks it. I would also like to change locations but I can’t figure out how to do that. Cool concept otherwise.
  • Politically one sided 1/5

    By Weston Adam
    God forbid if you have a conservative view point. 2 of my comments that were not even rash got removed. The app was kinda stupid anyways, nothing but horny college dudes on there.
  • Summer spaceship is glitchy :( 3/5

    By Doggie app
    Would give 5 stars but the summer spaceship glitched and deleted a saved location that I cannot get back because it is halfway across the country. Wish there was a way to restore previously saved locations, would make things a lot easier.
  • Certain types of people 1/5

    By iejdhdbekshrb
    Nothing but pitiful people complaining about their lives and the sadness that invokes them
  • Cyber bullying 1/5

    By AntiBullying_
    Yik yak is being used for kids and young adults to cyber bully people. The easiest way for someone to bully someone else is through a screen where their names are never said. Gut wrenching to see everything people have to say about others. The app should definitely have stricter guide lines if it’s going to be a safe non-bullying app.
  • I HATE YIK YAK 1/5

    By thompsonaaliyah
    YHIS APP NEEDS TO BE DELETED! All it does it great bully and spread rumers or secrets about people. It’s a very bad app that should be taken down!!!
  • Fun app, but the Ux could be better 3/5

    By Thyneacaptain
    Over enjoying the little phrases I see here and there and usually are fun to read. Though on an iPhone 12, the notch does prevent me from choosing what’s hot. Hopefully there will be an update in the future that addresses this and I’ll be able to come back and update my review.
  • Toxic 1/5

    By Scharf, WI
    What a toxic app for teens to bully one another anonymously. It’s awful.
  • Don't filter out all curse words 4/5

    By EgV93000
    As an app centered around the anonymous thoughts of college students, YikYak is doing a disservice to itself by making itself completely "clean". Banning harassing words like slurs is reasonable. But sometimes you just want to talk candidly about p*ssy on campus without being censored. There is already a feature to filter out cuss words for those who aren't comfortable with that. Do your app a favor and make it as fun as possible.
  • Truth 5/5

    By CarlEuegene
    Not that I have to hide behind anonymity, but this app just feels good to me.
  • Cool so far 3/5

    By slimepurp
    This lowkey reminds me of the old app Geeking. Just add some chat featuresn it’d probably be a perfect replacement
  • Let me unblock 2/5

    By c.diggory
    I would like to be able to see what message I blocked somebody from and have the option to undo if I made an error, or reconsider.
  • Stopped working 1/5

    By jamie grisko
    Feeds won’t load after I got a new phone, super weird. Reached out on twitter, no response.
  • Guardrails are garbage 1/5

    By Jamm man ham can;47
    The new guardrails are so stupid. You can barely post anything non-PG. I mean this is an app made for college students, what’s the point in censoring everything? 0/5, this app used to be perfect.
  • Eh… 2/5

    By crusty7171
    I like the idea of the local chat, it’s great, theres not a lot of activity here, I think because nobody has heard of it!
  • Cyberbullying App 1/5

    By Ghgsvhxbggj
    This app is a fun idea but even after only having it for one day, I had had enough. This app allows for high school and middle school kids to anonymously bully anyone they want to. I think this app is toxic, and it’s sad that kids are using it to bully others.
  • Bad 1/5

    By huhhjkhkhh
    Can’t see nothing
  • Horrible 1/5

    By Wsian_Aarrior
    Lots of people using anonymity to their advantage to post racist, harmful comments. App barely loads and often crashes.
  • Slow 1/5

    By Nhgcyhbbfgvb
    The app runs so slowly and often does not work correctly. Some times posts don’t load, and sometimes it crashes. The Spaceship feature is hit or miss also. Also, too many words are filtered out automatically when trying to post, even if the message is not bad at all. It’s too soft and removes too much.
  • This App is horrible 1/5

    By not not a real person
    I can’t even get past the verification. Definitely too buggy
  • Broken app 1/5

    By abb3080
    Nothing shows up after deleting account. Why add it as a feature if it breaks the app?
  • Meh 1/5

    By Mochkingbird
    Lots of potential but needs a lot of work
  • Would be a great app if people were good people. 1/5

    By K Freed
    This is a cool idea. Unfortunately it’s predicated on the idea that people are good people. While many are, there are always going to be people that aren’t. This is the perfect app for such people because it provides no way to hold anyone accountable for what they say. In my time at college I’ve seen multiple instances of severe cyber bullying and emotional abuse. None were taken down by the apps “bullying” filters. This includes girls name dropping guys and labeling them as “stalkerish” or “predatory.” Effectively ruining those guys reputations just because they didn’t like them. Guys name dropping girls and sl*t shaming them. People joking about killing themselves. People making fun of those with disabilities. People heavily sexualizing student athletes. People making death threats or doxxing others. People being racist and more. While I love the idea, the fact that you have no way to verify whether those who use your app are good people makes it impossible to maintain without enabling bad people to do terrible things.
  • Summer Spaceship 1/5

    By geozuf
    Summer space ship does not work. This app is so poorly designed. It is constantly glitching and is different every day.
  • Deletes good content 2/5

    By Fhhfijuf
    It was fun until one of my best Yik yaks was removed that didn’t violate the guardrails.
  • Cyber bullying cesspool 1/5

    By callimarie123
    This app is rancid and has done nothing about name dropping and harassment. Sure there’s helpful stuff on there sometimes, but for the most part this app promotes bullying and hasn’t done anything about it. They deleted their app once and rebooted it. It should have never rebooted it.
  • Anti-White Racism goes unchecked 1/5

    By emmanuel22195
    Hate speech is out of control especially when it comes to the hateful rhetoric directed against “white people”. It’s rampant and widespread and YikYak leaves all those posts up. Why is it that YikYak tolerates this disgusting double standard? Reporting these posts does nothing and it suggests that maybe YY holds the same anti-White sentiment and it truly is disgusting.
  • Not Bad! 4/5

    By Lego-my-
    My only issue is i wish you guys would let us see what Yaks got taken down by the herd like instagram!
  • super fun, doesn’t fit phone 4/5

    By Do yah care?
    this app is hilarious, especially in a college town. however the app just does not fit my phone screen. i have an iphone 12 for reference.
  • Can this app start loading 1/5

    By WillrzWei
    It glitches too much
  • yikyak won’t load :( DEVS PLS HELP :( 1/5

    By pink-dog
    whenever i open the app it’s just a constant cycle of the stripe going across the screen, and it refuses to load. this has been happening for a few days now. Ive updated the app, restarted my phone, etc, but it still doesn’t work! i miss yikyak— devs please help me!
  • not working 1/5

    By Djshxfn

  • HELP 5/5

    By brooke903
    I have an iPhone 11 and the top of the app is cut off.. please make it fit!! I love this app! So happy it’s back!!
  • Racist love it here! 1/5

    By Zax with a sax
    The amount of posts relating to killing blacks and whites is absolutely insane. What’s the point of reporting and blocking if they still show up? Fix your app
  • good concept but glitchy 3/5

    By joycerus2001
    i looove this app, it’s just so frustrating when it glitches all the time (laggy, wont load, etc). also i’ve recently noticed my yakarma isn’t increasing when it should—for example i’ll get like 10 upvotes on a yak and my yakarma will only increase by 2 for some reason??
  • Not designed for iPhones 1/5

    By Lauren Bertino
    There are buttons in this app that are hidden and unreachable due to the iPhone camera notch. Terrible UI design to not account for a very common display…
