GeoLogTag is dead. Long live GeoTagr.

When I started developing for the App Store 3.5 years ago, my initial idea was to make a photo geotagging app for my own since I couldn't find such an app in the App Store. The app I made was at the same time a geologger and a geotagger so GeoLogTag seemed a good app name.

Years have gone by and I've learned that GeoLogTag wasn't such a good choice. Users and even bloggers misspelled the name frequently. A couple of weeks ago I asked my beta testers what they thought about the name and about 90% of them disliked the name. One of the answers was "It sounds like a button on a scientific calculator". In other words, time for a name change.

I had a lot of ideas and my beta testers came up with some great suggestions, but most of them were already in use in the App Store. In the end, the list was reduced to 2 names and the winner is GeoTagr. It's a short, to-the-point name that captures the main functionality of the app. I like it a lot, I hope you like it too.
