Hi, haven't posted here in a while, but thought i'd start off again with a little project i'm working on. I'm needing to develop a few icons for a made up application. What i'm needing is some ideas of what this application might be called, whats a good name? perhaps could be totally original, perhaps could be some apple application sounding name.

Any ideas? :-)

Hehe. i saw that. :-)

I'm not really into trying to think of good ideas, just something i can render up for this project. something that sounds / could be real. I'll have to do the main app icon and a toolbar one. It's for a tutorial for some magazine. so needs to be professional and fun.

here are a few more ideas i've had:

Mugshot - think photobooth, but with more features, adding moustaches, scars, silly junk
Study Buddy - flash cards, inline wikipedia, lists, to dos, timers, etc.
Holiday - visual holiday planner - map your trip, local sites, add photos afterwards, show friends,
Cupid - some kind of free match making program, think like messenger but for match making
Planner - event planning, lists, people, items to buy, stationary, weddings, partys.
Bootlocker - safely stow away important personal items, secure, easy.
Family Tree - some kind of visual family tree program, modern, elegant ui, etc.

Heres a quick sketch for an idea.

Decoratorâ„¢ - Use components to build your room, then test out colours and wallpaper patterns



Kinda lame perhaps.

back to the drawing board.
