The Yo messaging app recently made waves with both its simple premise and $1 million in angel investment funding. The app sends the word "Yo" to your friends. But that app isn't the only famous thing with a one-word specialty. Hodor, the hulking character from "Game of Thrones" who carries young Brandon Stark around on his back, only ever says one word: "Hodor."
The Yo, Hodor app for iOS exists as a sort of celebration of both the Yo app and Hodor. Like Yo, it simply sends a "Hodor" to your friends. You get a push notification along with a "Hodor" sound clip when someone Hodors you.
The free app is extremely simple. You fill in a username and then add friends. In my case, I added complete strangers by searching for obvious usernames like "TheHound," "TyrionLannister," and "Bran." I hereby apologize for Hodoring you folks even though you don't know me. My username is "AgentCooper" if anyone wants to Hodor me back. I'll leave my app running until I get sick of being Hodored.
Yo, Hodor joins a surprisingly robust world of Hodor-related apps. There's already a Hodor keyboard replacement app and several different Hodor translation apps. It will give you something to do while you're lounging on your replica Iron Throne. Hodor.
