Speak out. Listen in. Worldwide.

Say what's on your mind in your own voice!

Tap on a Yap map pin on the main map to play back the broadcast from that location.

Browse through and play a list of the latest broadcasts.

Browse through a list of contributing users and listen to their broadcasts.

Browse and listen to broadcasts targeted at you with the "@ me" feature.

What’s New

Version 6.1.6

More minor bug fixes and interface updates, such as an update to the "Broadcast..." pop-up menu that shows next to the YapSpot icon on the home screen.

We've updated the range limitation to function when the "Include older broadcasts during playback" option under the "Settings" menu is selected.

Check out the "VIP" feature. Whenever you find a broadcaster you enjoy hearing, tap the "Star" icon near their name and make them a VIP. This ensures you will always hear their broadcasts before any non-VIPs! Also, you can record whenever you see the microphone or "@" buttons, and when you're finished, you'll be brought back to the previous view you were browsing rather than defaulting to the map view as in previous versions.

Minor bug fixes to prevent saving multiple copies of the same broadcast.

If you're driving, you can have the map auto-center on your location by selecting "turn auto-center on" from the location button on the right side of the main map screen. We've also made it easier to respond to other's broadcasts - and to users THEY'VE responded to. You'll love our new smaller map annotations that bring a sense of simplicity to the map.

We're always working (and playing) to make improvements to provide a simpler, more enjoyable global conversation experience.

Enjoyable app!

I enjoy the app very much; it is very much like using a CB radio - with the added feature of reviewing your comment before “transmitting” to hopefully not say something that a few seconds of good judgement might make you otherwise reconsider. Obviously this isn’t a radio - you’ll need a network or mobile connection. There are some regulars subscribed who are always fun to engage in a brief chat. I see some fun/interesting uses for this app beyond it’s published intent. All in all, and fun app to leave running! Thanks, and keep up the great work!

Developer Response ,

Thanks so much for the positive feedback! We’ll continue to make enhancements and listen to our users about features they would like to see!

I notice the x is not available on your app

When I asked for assistance in deleting the app from iOS 14.3 (I can only remove the icon from the home screen not from the app folder) I was quickly and professionally responded to. Turns out it was not app related, but iOS 14 related.
That kind of support is above and beyond.

Developer Response ,

I have heard others describe the issue you're seeing with iOS 14.

Here is some info that might be helpful to you.

UPDATE: Thank you! We hope you give us another try someday. We're just now getting the word out. Have an awesome day...
