The Yo, Hodor Parody App Lets You Shout 'Hodor Hodor' To Your Friends

If the idea of the sensationally simplistic messaging app Yo appeals to you, but you're also a Game of Thrones fan and would rather say something like 'Hodor Hodor' to your friends instead of 'yo,' this parody application was made for you. Developed by former Facebook intern Tyler Hedrick, Yo, Hodor is a Yo app-inspired messenger application for your phone that lets you shout 'Hodor' to your friends, and only 'Hodor' (or at most 'Hodor Hodor').

Hodor, a character in Game of Thrones played by Kristian Nairn on the hit HBO show, is mentally slow and can only say his only name. It is even more fitting, then, that he be the motivation behind this version of the Yo app. Stats for Medieval Messaging Apps Trending: Older & Mild
