Be careful what you name your iPad applications

My first Titanium iPad application was rejected. Not because of anything wrong with my code or Titanium, but because of the name.

The full name of the app is "RhymeNow for iPad," but I called the project "RhymePad" and this is what displays under the icon on the iPad desktop. Here's the notice I got from Apple:

"Thank you for submitting RhymeNow for iPad to the App Store. We've reviewed RhymeNow for iPad and determined that we cannot post this version of your application to the App Store because the term "pad" in the app name on the device may be confusing to users and incorrectly create an association with Apple products."

I guess I'm going to have to rename it to RhymeNowHD and resubmit. I thought you might like to know so you can avoid this problem with your own apps. Call your app "NotePad" or "ScratchPad" or "AnythingPad" and you can expect to be rejected.

  • Apple is very particular on the name, description and even the graphics (icon) you use.
