New app for texting acronyms
November 15, 2011 in Social Networking
[prMac.com] Brisbane, Australia - yktyk introduces yktyk 1.0 (pronounced yacketyak), a new iPhone app that's lots of fun for people who are into acronyms and abbreviations or not. And I say that because this new app has so many fun acronyms like wombat - waste of brains, money and time; or hiooc - help, I'm out of coffee; and even bisflatm - boy, I sure feel like a turquoise monkey. In fact there are so many fun acronyms in this new app (over 1800 in all) that you will find yourself wanting to memorise your favourites just to be able to drop them into conversation at that perfect moment!
Of course the real plus is the ability to text your friends clever acronyms that they can then translate at their end if they have yktyk as well. You can even share your yktyk messages on Facebook and Twitter - so that's a real bonus.
yktyk is a very simple app that's easy to use. I can see this one being very popular with the younger generation as well as grown-ups who enjoy having fun with the English language. Built into the app is a database facility to store your personal acronyms: things like ilr - I love Robert; or mmspaw- meet me same place after work. Besides sending and sharing your messages quickly through yktyk, you can also scroll through the database of acronyms at anytime to pick out your favorites to use in conversation or whatever.
The other gr8 thing about yktyk is the yktyk character - check him out - a wild pink yak that I'm assured is going to be bringing us lots more amusing acronyms and other associated fun things. You'll find yktyk at our website and on Facebook.
At just 99 cents, this app is a great little addition to any iPhone and will come in very handy when texting, sharing on Facebook and Twitter as well as just searching for a clever acronym to drop into conversation with your friends.
