Homer Simpson comes to TomTom iOS app
The voice of Homer Simpson is available for the iPhone TomTom satnav app.
Homer—voiced by Dan Castellaneta—will say things like: “Make a U-turn,” “Ha ha, you’ve goofed,” and, unsurprisingly “D’Oh!”
TomTom U.S.A. costs $50 in the App Store. Homer’s voice is available as an in-app purchase for $6.
“Homer Simpson is one of the most familiar and fondly recognised cartoon characters on the planet. So to have Homer become uniquely available for our TomTom App for iPhone is really thrilling for us. We believe Homer will bring lots of fun and enjoyment to millions of fans around the world, as drivers’ very own co-pilot,” said Alain Pakiry, senior vice president for marketing at TomTom.
“Homer’s skills will help keep drivers and fans entertained in a light hearted and familiar way. It’s exciting to have him on board!” he added.
Drivers in the UK, Ireland, Canada, New Zealand, Australia, Portugal, Luxembourg, Finland, Norway, Denmark, the Netherlands, Belgium, Sweden and South Africa can also get Homer’s voice for the TomTom app. The U.K. & Ireland version of the app adds Star Wars voices such as Darth Vader and Han Solo as in-app purchase options in addition to Homer.
