Tired of all those lengthy text messages? Now, there appears to be a simple new app that has begun to take over the Internet of late by letting users send simple "Yo" messages.

It was created by Israeli tech engineers who wanted to overhaul how people communicate with each other by simplifying the number of words employed.

Called Yo, the app already has seen investors cough up a sizeable amount of cash. The app only lets you send a message of "Yo" to contacts and nothing more.

In a way, it aims to be an end to long text messages, emoticons and short videos that often bog down users.

Investors have given $1 million dollars to back the app in future development.

"Wanna say 'good morning'? just Yo," the app's description reads. "Wanna say 'Baby I'm thinking about you'? - Yo. 'I've finished my meeting, come by my office' - Yo. 'Are you up?' - Yo. The possibilities are endless."

According to Moshe Hogeg, the CEO of Mobli, a photo and video sharing service, he became frustrated by having to continually and repeatedly call and text his assistant when he wanted her to come into his office. He developed the "yo" idea with a former Mobli engineer, Or Arbel, to streamline the idea that you can communicate without being forced to deliver long-winded messages to users.

It took some eight hours to create the app and the coding.

Currently, estimates say that some 4 million "Yos" have been sent, according to reports.

"It's not just an app that says Yo," Arbel told (registration required) reporters. "It's a whole new means of communication." Arbel is Yo's chief executive.

The app is available on both Google's Play store as well as Apple's iTunes app store.

With innovative and unique apps taking the tech world by storm in recent months, perhaps this Yo idea could lead to a new way to communicate. People like Arbel and Hogeg believe it will help simplify communications so users won't be forced to send longer messages that sometimes get lost when all that was intended is a brief contact to let someone know you are thinking of them.

Especially in Philadelphia, right Adrian?
