Can somebody help me I’ve been trying to do this for two days now… Thank you! :sad:


Pretty sure it can only be used on 64 bit computers. Not tablets or phones.


I play Yo on my iPad Pro now...why won’t I be able to play in the future? :sad:

Is the app supposed to load a command prompt that states Not Sandboxed? This seems to be a serious security issue. Every time I open the app, I see a command prompt quickly load and disappear. I was able to capture a screenshot of it, showing the words "Not Sandboxed".

How weird ... posted a farewell message on or about June 28th. It's gone. Did a search for Author ... only 4 posts came up at all and those were years old ... Oh well. The new BVG app doesn't seem to function any better for me than Gameroom. Slows down to a crawl quickly, takes multiple clicks to just to open a gift box when visiting friends, doesn't fit the screen of my laptop and can't find a way to adjust it, tried the full-screen mode and the friends' ladder disappeared. I give. I'd already canceled my premium VIP subscription the day I posted the missing farewell. Nine years of playing down the tubes. Thank you for trying, BVG. Bye.

It worked well for me the first day, then began to freeze completely.

So I am guessing if there is no mobile app, does this mean anyone who doesn’t own a laptop computer have to spend over 2 hundreds of pounds on a laptop to carry on playing this game?

The game isn’t meant to be mobile, anyway. It supposed to be played on computers.

This application only works on 64 bit version of windows

nothing is changed it's still running yadda and the reward is one big yadda, so maybe it's good for beginners

:D the first item of gay umbrella LOL :drool: the game makes no sense :quiet:

I was wondering does it store cookies like a normal browser and if so how do we clear them???

Sadly it does not seem that you are going to respond to any of these comments, and that alone is rather disturbing. I have noticed that the page that you seem to be pushing more than allowing myself and many others to remain on the browser on Facebook.

Your page that you have written has numerous issue that may or may not create issues on the new desktop. Sadly there is no way to just copy and paste and then need to print screen and post and you do not offer the ability.

I hope that you will be able to fix this issue way before the idea 2020 which now creates more question on what you plan on doing at that time.

For the nothing that my opinion is worth, here it is: I have tried the app, and I would be fine with using it if you make the copy/paste action available. I switch between accounts and I know I sound lazy but I don't like having to type in my email address and password every single time, along with having to type out whatever else I put, such as greetings to yofriends etc. I like to come up with a general greeting most days and copy/paste it into the comments, which I can't do via desktop app. I use FB through Chrome, which has the autofill/password remembering thing, and I prefer that. I'm sure that that's something that you'll add later, I just hope to be notified about it when it happens, so I can use it again.

That is, if Yoville lasts that long. Reading through the other posts here, I doubt YV will last through 2020. Many people keep leaving, like I'm ready to do, and if this keeps up, bvg will 'sunset' the game long before the official 2020 switch.
And perhaps that's for the best.

I got the app downloaded but it still seems to have some issues that need to be worked out (having issues watching the ads for coins). I hope that at some point the desktop app will show just YoWorld without it looking like I'm on Facebook. It gets very confusing when I have my browser open on the "real" Facebook and the YoWorld app open. I keep trying to click on Facebook stuff on the YoWorld desktop app and then realizing it's not working because I'm not in the browser. It's really annoying. I feel like I should be able to click the stuff on Facebook because I can see it. It's a distraction. I'm already having a hard enough time getting used to it not being a separate tab on the browser. Please don't make it extra confusing by making it look like the app is still on Facebook when it isn't.

I play with Puffin browser (laptop version) and it is so much faster than the app. I appreciate that you are looking to start working on this now and continue our game. However, I can't see myself using it as the speeds are too low for me to want to play on it. I also have the very same issue with gameroom. I'm not sure what Puffin specifically does to make their browser run so smoothly, but you should look into it.

I finally downloaded the app and find that my game play is much better. It's faster, hardly any lag and works well so far.
The only issue I have is while trying to watch ads. They tend to freeze up for me and I don't seem to receive any type of credit for
attempting to watch them. Other than that, this app is working well. Thank you!!

Downloaded the app the day it was released and it worked great. However, the last few days it takes forever to load the game if it even loads as most of the time I just get an empty white screen. Not going to be bothered with it anymore.
