After reading mouser's threads on how important it is to find the right name for your applications, I decided to ask for help here.

I'm writing:
Quote
[...] a program that helps you read and write faster. It will use stats on what you read/write to help with autocompletion and to present words at the optimal speed. If everything works, it will even generate APML feeds with your attention habits:

http://apml.org
(From the main GOE 2007 thread)

How do you name such a thing?
I have been playing with variations of reading/writing/attention/saving/speed-up and they all suck smiley

Thanks!

IF you have any other applications how are they called? Consistency is important too.

This is where Wordzilla's Free Thesaurus can help.  Wink

Try for words with similar meaning to rapid, fast, quick, speedy, etc.

Or try for words that suggest it...rabbit, jet, cheetah, rocket, etc.

Great stuff! I like JediType!
it's kind of difficult because it does two things, reading and writing speed-ups. Maybe these should be named differently and be independent somehow, although it kills the nice advantage of having them combined.

app, I do have Wordzilla's thesaurus! thanks for the suggestion!

Keep'em coming! I'm sure something great will come out of this thread!

Ralf: I think the martial arts idea is good too. I think it's Sensei (but still, it's just western alphabetization of a japanese character smiley, who knows! )

Justice, thanks for your suggestions too.

The problem is that there are 4 concepts (speed, attention, reading, writing) and the final name must be short! Hard!

I like eyeCue! it sounds like IQ, -which reminds people of psychology- it's really short... it's catchy!

Yes, eye for read; cue for prompting (a typing 'shortcut'); IQ for 'smarts'.

If it was just a speed typing app, you could've named it... faptap. It rhymes, and you can do hilarious slogans. Like... "onehanded typing like a pro". And stuff.

For playing with combining words and ideas, try one of the tools for creating domain names.  You can have fun with it if nothing else!  A starting point is some of the links on Best Tool For the Job
