Introducing Yup, a new messaging app for the visually impaired

iOS & iPadOS

Hello everyone,

My friend and I recently built a notification app that was inspired by the needs of the visually impaired. It turned out to be a pretty entertaining way to communicate with close friends.

We added a list of humorous sound bites from popular movie and TV moments that users can choose from and send as text and audio notifications with a single touch of a button.

Here are some of the sound clips you can send with just one tap:

"Almost there" - Star Wars
"Lets do this” – Elf
“Wanna get food?” – Elf
“Hey baby” – Beavis and Butthead
“Hows it goin?” – Nacho Libre
“I am so bored” – Family Guy
“I love you” – Home Alone 2
“Ready to party!” – Bridesmaids
“Wake up!” – Kung Fu Panda
“Well, goodnight” – Bambi

The app is FREE to download. All we ask is that you leave a review for our app on the App Store.

We hope you enjoy it!

P.S. Make sure you have the sound on your phone turned on! : )

Why would a VoiceOver user try to listen to the app with their sound turned off? That little warning at the end seems...rather obvious? The app seems like a fun little thing to mess around with.

This sounds interesting, but neither the login or sign up do anything and the unlabeled button seems to not do anything either.

Hi Taylor. Thanks for trying it out.

The sign up or login just requires a username and a numeric password. If you were able to see the unlabeled white button on the bottom right corner that means you successfully signed up. You should see your own username at the very top where you can send yourself and audio notification.

The unlabeled white button just takes you to the log out/invite screen.

If you want to send me a test Yup message, you can add me to your friend list and send me one. I will reply to you afterwards. My username is mrdavid

Let me know if you have any other questions or problems.
