    I tried it for 50 days at the end of last year, it never once offered me anything even as cheap as my current provider, Smarty, let alone anything cheaper.

    It only offers deals on which it can earn a commission. I'd say do your own research and work out how you use your phone.

    It also seems to ignore short-term promotions.

    Yboo not available on Google Play Store.

    Typing in yboo in the Play Store brings up some very strange adult dating sites!

    Is this only available as an iPhone app?

    It's come up this time around. Very strange.

    Either way I don't think I will bother with it as I'm only paying £6 a month.

    We would love to hear your feedback and experiences using the yboo app, positive or negative!


    "that compares SIM only deals for up to 60 million UK consumers." So do those online comparison sites.


    "The app analyses data from your device". i.e. spies on it's users?


    Doesn't show in Playstore using my device. I wanted to check what permissions are required to install.

    As posted earlier - https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.yboo.android&hl=en_GB

    I can't easily see where it declares the permissions required though. Found it:
    This app has access to:
