User reviews of Yik Yak

  • By Marie's friend

    10/10 would recommend

    I have since graduated college, gotten married, and have a successful career. But yik yak is the reason I was kicked out of school. Yup. Good times on this app from pulling an expulsion worthy prank, to finding a few people to actually hook up with, to endless stories and crap talking. I recommend this app in all of its glory. Please tell me I’m not the only one to get kicked out of school from using this app?!

  • By Sierraboy95

    Oh how I missed this app

    This app was the highlight of my college days. I even met a long term girlfriend through this app. Everyone was obsessed and it was the perfect way to find new parties. However, this app will never be like how it was. There isnt a single user in my area yet, and I doubt it will have the same fan base it had back in 2015. Im just glad it’s finally back though

    Never Lost Hope

    I never deleted the app off my homescreen because I loved it so much. Thanks for bringing it back! But please fix lag and bring back usernames/chat features those were the best part

  • By ThoughtHarbor

    Thank you for bringing back

    App still needs work, but it’s back. Sometimes, the comments won’t load in. Sometimes I can’t up or downvote, but it’s back. I’m grateful.

  • By VCR12


    Love that the app is back but so far it’s been slow and glitchy. Takes forever to upload any comments
