Yik Yak left the App Store back in 2017, and things have been quiet on the anonymous local message board app since. However, Yik Yak has found itself back on the iOS App Store in the US, allowing users to hop on there and anonymously complain about everything around them.
Yik Yak announced its triumphant return to the US App Store with a video feature Brian Baumgartner of The Office fame. Baumgartner isn’t the first name we think of when we imagine the millennial and gen z-targeted app, but any celebrity endorsement is better than none.
As far as the app goes, it’s mostly like it was when it left our lives in 2017. You can anonymously post about just about anything, and it’s viewable by any other Yik Yak users within a five-mile radius. You can also read and reply to other users’ messages, creating an anonymous party that everyone is sure to want to take part in.
