How does the web app look and feel to use?

YoName looks almost identical to any other search engine. The only difference with this application is that it searches for people rather than websites. The look and design of the site is very simple but this isn’t necessarily a bad thing. It’s very simple to use the site to find people that you almost forgot about but it takes a very long time to show the results of your search.

How does the registration process work?

Registering for a free account on YoName is very simple and takes a couple of minutes at most. It’s completely free to sign up and involves a very simple signup form. You will however also have to complete a human verification checker which is more than a little frustrating. You will then be offered the option to earn money by completing a short survey. This is optional and many people will choose to ignore it. The site then doesn’t bother telling you what has happened. However it will send you an automated email containing a link. You must click on this link to confirm your address and activate your account. As soon as you have done this you can then log in and start searching for people.

What does it cost to use the application?

YoName is a completely free application which can be used to track down long lost friends and family members. It is supported by adverts but there aren’t that many and these don’t cause a major problem. There are links to advertise on the site if you want to advertise your business.

Who would you recommend the application to?

YoName is aimed at people who want to track down friends that they haven’t seen for a long time. It’s a search engine for people and makes it easy to find people that you miss. The site is really slow.
