Yep, the Seinfeld version of the Emoji app is here. Because sometimes, a smiling pile of poop can't convey what a fluffy shirt will.
Remember that Yo app from last week? The one that did nothing but send a "Yo" to people you may or may not actually know? Well now you can send a friendly "Hodor" in much the same way! I don't know about Hodor but that makes Hodor feel very Hodor, if you ask Hodor.
"'Yo' is a single-tap zero character communication tool. Yo is everything and anything, it all depends on you, the recipient and the time of the Yo," according to the app store description.
Developed by San Francisco-based Life Before Us, LLC, the app's creators describe it as "the simplest & most efficient communication tool in the world."
And it is really as simple as it sounds.
Download it, choose the friends you want to send your "Yo" greeting to, and they get a push notification on their phone and that's it. Seriously.
New York developer Mike Lazer-Walker developed WhatsApplebees (like WhatsApp, get it?) as a snarky commentary on the state of boneheaded social media attempts by big business. Use the app to find and connect with Applebee's fans in your area and around the world, the promise goes, but (un?)fortunately it's only an unofficial pet project. When you think about it though, a corporate-sponsored social media and messaging app doesn't seem that far-fetched, does it?
