The Gecko has found a new home on your iPhone. He and his Wheel of Wisdom are appearing in apps on an iPhone near you, thanks to GEICO signing on as a charter iAd advertiser with Apple. Users who stumble upon the ad will be invited to spin the game-show wheel to consult the Gecko about many of life’s issues. He is currently offering advice on romance, finance, food, health, style, travel, family and friends. I personally like his take on style.

In addition to advice, the ad offers new wallpaper that can’t be found anywhere else. The best of the latest ringtones and GEICO commercials are also available. Don’t have GEICO’s two iPhone applications yet? You can tap to download them directly from the iAd.

If I could share a link for you to access the ad directly I would, but the GEICO iAd runs on a mobile network. Be sure to keep your eyes peeled for a banner ad inviting you to spin the Gecko’s Wheel of Wisdom so you can check out this unique experience for yourself. And, if you see it, make sure to let me know what you think!

    I really don’t like this commercial because my dad says that I made the commercial and starred in it and not as the human if you know why I mean. I mean I love the commercial and I’m just glad he hasn’t seen te one with the pigs head out the window of the car. And thanks because now I don’t wanna go near zip lines . But I think you should stay with the gieco and the Australian accent.
