If you’ve been watching Game of Thrones, you probably know the character Hodor. He is a servant of the Stark family that has some sort of speech impediment and could only say one thing – Hodor! A parody of the app Yo! which does nothing else but send a “Yo!” alert to your contacts, Yo, Hodor offers the ability to communicate with your friends in a way that only a true Hodor-ist (Hodor-ian?) would understand.
When you have the app, you must first add contacts in order to be able to Hodor them. In turn when someone Hodors you, you get a push notification along with a “Hodor!” sound clip. That’s pretty much what the app does. It’s one of those things you download that are so much fun, but really has no point.
Yo, Hodor! is free for download at the App Store. Though it’s still exclusive to Apple users, programmer Tyler Hedrick is looking forward to releasing an Android version soon.
Season four of Game of Thrones has just ended, and it’s a bit of a long wait until the next season arrives. Maybe we can just Hodor each other until the wait is over and we can finally see more episodes…and more of Hodor, of course!
