‘Yo’ Launches IFTTT Channel, Lets You ‘Yo’ Your Connected Home

Yo

Yo is a great way to annoy your friends, but it could also turn into something much more — a simple way to manage push notifications across multiple apps and gadgets. On Tuesday, we got the first taste of how Yo might actually be useful on a daily basis.
