What is Yik Yak?
Yik Yak is a social network! One of it's kind actually. It's the only application that has the concept that it does! And it works towards making this world "smaller".

What does it let you do in addition to that?
It lets you connect to people "around" you and near to you. That's what makes it unique and special.
Another awesome unique feature about Yik Yak is
There are no rules, no formalities. Are you drinking milk? Post it on Yik Yak let you neighbors know, yeah that's the kind of application it is I'm talking about.
It's more of a "random post" thing. Let's say you can post "Damn I'm a goat", and you'd still get eyeballs on the post, that's what it's all about. About letting you be yourselves and let you say just about anything, you don't have to be formal, don't have to pretend. Nope just no. You say anything you want to, that's what it's about.

Another loveable feature about Yik Yak for PC is that it lets "you" decide if a post is worth being on Yik Yak or not! Let's say someone posts what they're doing with their girlfriend right now, and you think it shouldn't be on Yik Yak, well you can downvote it.
It's like having a dislike button on Facebook, if enough people downvote a post on Yik Yak, it gets removed or hidden.
Let's you Reply

Share with Your Circle
Another feature to add to the "social network" thing is its ability to let you share Yaks (posts). Yeah if there's something really good, you can actually share it with your circle for them to read and interact.
How to Download Yik Yak for Windows PC
Okay, so the bottom line is, Yik Yak is awesome and you need it for your windows PC! So how to do it? Let me answer that.
You'd need an android emulator to download Yik Yak on your PC! Because Yik Yak is available for android and iOS, so an android emulator would work just fine.
What is an Emulator
An Emulator is a third-party piece of software, that you can install on your windows PC! Upon installation, it lets you create a virtual environment of any other OS on your native OS.
It's like once you download an Emulator, you would be able to create the environment of Android on your Windows devices, and then you can download Yik Yak.
It doesn't change your OS totally, it just creates a virtual environment, in a separate window, so nothing to be afraid of.
Is it Illegal to Use Emulators?
Nope not at all. When you download an Emulator, you're actually installing a new device on your windows systems, that's equivalent to buying a new device. And
What you're not allowed to do is, download the application by some way on your Windows PC on Windows OS itself, but nope you're doing it on android OS, so it's allowed.
