Yoke – Making It Easier To Be Friendly, Or To Ghost

Yoke – Locate Friends & Family is an app focused on allowing you to locate all manner of different people that you can connect with.

One of the most strangely uncomfortable social problems in our modern world is the desire to be more social, without being too creepy or otherwise abandoning privacy.

You want to meet up with a friend, but you only want to do so if they are already close, so that you don’t have to go too far. However, other than pestering them constantly through text messages, what are you supposed to do?

With Yoke, you can easily find out where people are after they have first connected with you, allowing you to not only see their location on a helpfully provided map, but also actively share your location with your friends and make it so much easier to see where everyone is.

You can receive alerts to let you know precisely when someone you know is nearby, including vice versa. With regard to privacy, Yoke makes sure to only provide general locations, rather than specific addresses or exact details, so as to ensure you don’t completely remove all traces of privacy.

By far the best feature is the ability to actively turn off certain friends from receiving notifications about your location, perfect for that gentle fading out of a friendship, or if you really just don’t want to deal with that one particular friend; or, if you are kinder and more optimistic, if you are secretly planning their surprise party.

Once you have located your friend, you can use the in-built messenger to connect and send the precise location and ensure you know where to meet up and hang out.

You can also create individual social circles containing different groups of people, allowing you to assign different people to different groups with crossover, making it so that you can reveal your location and activities to one group of friends, but not the other.

The entire purpose of Yoke is to facilitate organizing meet-ups, but it is also equally about making sure that you don’t have to deal with certain people or have your privacy completely disrupted.

Though it might seem anti-social, Yoke is a fantastic tool whether you are feeling especially social, or when you just want to be left alone.

The ascetic is clean and concise, offering all of the helpful information necessary to see what you’re doing.

Though it definitely needs a much larger audience, and it also relies on your friends agreeing to use it before it can really be of any use whatsoever, Yoke is a social app with a huge amount of potential. Whether for meeting with friends or for avoiding them entirely, Yoke is the perfect way to help manage your social gatherings.

ProsCons
Simple, clean ascetic that accomplishes what it needs to. Not only useful for meeting friends, it is also useful for avoiding them.The app inherently relies on other people using it, so it will be very quiet at first.
