Yo’s Or Arbel Drops Complaint Against “Oi”

yo black eye


Or Arbel, creator of messaging app “Yo” has several complaints with apps he claims are clones of his popular app, but he has no more gripes with Australia’s “Oi.” Yo was created in just under 8 hours, and Arbel was successful in raising $1.5 billion in seed money for his app which immediately catches the attention of other users who are connected with the simple, two-letter word “oy.”

Co-founder of Oi, Steve Barrett said he’d been notified by someone at Yo about allegations that his app had violated copyright regulations, and he said this was a “blind accusation.” Arbel, who has made complaints about similar apps and has told Apple to take them out of the Apple Store, is satisfied with Oi, and told Business Insider, “After clarification from the app owners, we have retracted our complaints against them.” However, the retraction of the complaints was news to Steve Barrett who, after tweeting about the incident, was not informed that the allegations were dropped. “No, zero notifications from anyone not from Yo or Apple.”

Oi is going to be available on Android in the near future.
