There's Now A Parody App Of Yo Called Yo, Hodor

"Hodor."

Remember Yo?

If you already forgot (or managed not to hear about it), it's the new app that raised over $1 million in funding and does nothing but send the word "Yo" to your family and friends.

And while some of Yo's popularity has died down, there's now a new app called Yo, Hodor trying to capitalize on the public's fascination with the monosyllabic app.

Yo, Hodor was built in four hours by Tyler Hedrick, an iOS developer at Medium, who told TechCrunch he wanted to see if he could recreate the Yo app based on the popular character Hodor from HBO's Game of Thrones.

Hedrick said that over 10,000 Hodors have been sent since its launch on Saturday.

I wrote an app called Hodor because Hodoring someone is so much cooler than Yoing someone. #yo #hodor #got

Since most of Yo's popularity has died down, Yo, Hodor might be the perfect replacement for those in Yo withdrawal.

However, it might not stay on the App Store for long, since Hodor technically belongs to HBO, and the company could either send a cease-and-desist letter to Hedrick or sue him.

So you might want to try out Yo, Hodor before it disappears forever. Or you could always just watch Game of Thrones reruns to get your Hodor fill.
