    So, now that I'm gearing up for more active paid software development (and more free stuff, don't worry ) I'm starting to think I need to rename my website.

    And since PreCentral is the community that's shaped a lot of my development in the past, I figured it couldn't hurt to open a discussion here. So what do you guys think?
    If you've liked my software, please consider to towards future development.

    Developer of many apps such as: WebOS Quick Install, WebOS Theme Builder, Ipk Packager, Unified Diff Creator, Internalz Pro, ComicShelf HD, LED Torch, over 70 patches and more.

    if you are looking for some name changes, may I offer some?

    I like "Robitaille inc." <-Sounds professional. "WebOS god" sounds a little egotistical, but appropriate.

    -Canada Custom ~ app development

    The name isn't anywhere nearly as important as the quality of the software. In your case both are flawless.

    Change nothing.

    I do agree with you on your point, ryleyinstl. Jason, you are one heck of a programmer. They is no need to change the name when you write such amazing software.

    I think it depends on the software you are creating honestly. If you are creating games and consumer level goodies, then your current name is great because it has a fun, casual feel.

    If, on the other hand, you are developing enterprise apps, then you may want something that has a more established or professional sound.

    My $.02.

    I say leave it the way it is. It's great that developers are from all over the world so a name tha represents your home country is a good thing in my opinion. I like "Canuck Software" far better than my "BoraWare" which was derived from a screen name I used 8 years ago which was derived from a europen Volkswagen I'm a fan of. All of which makes no real sense to the end user. At least with yours it's clear: you're a Canadian and you write software.

    I agree with flyingpenguin. Unless you're targeting upper management stiffs, your current name is great. Maybe just shorten it (CanuckSoft)?

    I also think MapleJay has a nice sound/look.

    Thanks to all of the good suggestions so far... I've got nothing original to contribute!

    Jason,

    Marketing is a big deal... Having a name that sounds/looks professional is definitely key. While I agree that if your software is excellent (as it is) then no matter the name you will get the publicity; however if you want to appeal to even more people, a professional name is key. (I'm sure you have at least one marketing buddy that can chime in)

    This is the exact reason why prehacks.com or whatever it is... isn't as large as PreCentral.

    I don't really have any creative ideas but "Robitaille , Inc." is the only quality suggestion so far.

    Give it time... I'm sure you'll come up with something. Cheers

    yea - I think it could be improved as a name. Somethinglike

    WebOSWizard
    or
    ProWebOS

    Something beyond Pre (cause it's gonna happen) and something to indicate the quality

    With whatever name you end up with, make sure you have an even better logo.

    How about KAWOSPG!! (Kick-***** WebOS Programming Guru)..

    I personally like Canuck Software for the name.

    That's a tough one Jason. Not sure if you need a change but the name says quite a bit about the organization. I can't think of anything right now. Lol
