Coming up with a name for a software application is pretty daunting task. Well, let me rephrase that: coming up with a good name is a daunting task. Bad names are easy. Good names are few and far between.
So as we’ve been putting the spec together for our next app and putting together interface mockups, we’ve been throwing names around. A lot of really bad names, with some so-so ones thrown in occasionally.
Yesterday came a bolt from the blue. We looked it up, and no one was using it, or anything close to it. (Although like most names, especially short ones, the domain name was taken.) So now that the hard part is out of the way, we can get busy coding. Well, as soon as we finish the spec, which should be done within the next week.
Oh, did I forget to mention what the name is?
