Contest: Pick a new name for Itsdagram, become a legend on Windows Phone

UPDATE 7:30ET: After 1K entries, give or take, we've closed off comments! Come back in 60 minutes for the top 5 choices and a chance to vote!

Okay folks, let’s play good news/bad news. The good news is Itsdagram, as an Instagram app, is here to stay for now.

The bad news is it needs a name change, font change and new icon….all in the next 24 hours. We’ll leave the details to your mind as to why that is, but for now, we just need a new name.

That’s where you come in...

Do you have a clever name? Think you know what it should be called? Well, here’s the deal…

  1. Leave a name in comments
  2. One entry per person, so make it count!
  3. WPCentral staff and developer Daniel Gary will choose 5 names, which we think are the best
  4. Later tonight, we’ll put up the top 5 choices in a poll—you all vote for the winner

What does the winner get?

  • $50 gift-certificate to our store and Daniel Gary will thank you in the app with a “Thanks to {winner} for suggesting {new name}.” All for being clever.

While we can’t call the app “Instagram” for obvious reasons, it can be called “[Something] for Instagram”. Other than that, all else should be a go though we think less emphasis on ‘Gram in the name would be better ourselves.

  • Instagram client.
  • edit:  I read the rules and went ahead with my second idea, see below
  • Momentary - synonym with instantenous, your picture captures a moment, and there is likely commentary to it
    That's so deep!
  • You should read them, you can use the word instagram, you just have to use it in combination with other words
  • i don't think you understood my original edit
  • I think Instagram is forcing the name change because maybe they're bringing the official Instagram soon?
  • that's a very long name man :p
  • lol
    Can't stop laughing
    That made my day.. and my night!!!
  • Haha... awesome.

  • ShootUP
  • How about calling it 'anagram'? With everyone trying to come up with a new name I think this is a clever one. Also, it sneaks in the 'gram' part but is an existing word that Instagram can't complain about. It works on many levels! :)
  • I'm going to get the ball rolling with Windows Phone Client for Instagram. 
  • #gram, hastaGram, lnstagram with L, snapgram, iG client? Any of these? :)
  • Since the official instagran refused to develop the official app, I would like to call. Revengegram
  • Or Instarevenge
  • Lol u got my vote
  • As for alternative Altergram
  • Wehavthegram
  • InSystrom
  • Kavingram
  • Instapp (inst-app)
    "Hey I just instapped a new picture!"
  • How about Snappd or Snapd
    Have you "snapd" it yet?
  • Kilo. Because we don't do grams here.
  • Instagram Client, that sounds good, and draws attention to people who doesn't know that exists an app that do anything as the instagram does.
  • Filtersnap (for Instagram)
    EDIT: Or maybe Filtasnap to keep the Instagram 'a'.

  • I do like snapsta though...has a cool ring to it.
  • I revised the name.
  • Agreed!
    -Frank Arce
  • I would suggest using instagram in the name since that's what people will search for. Keep it simple:
    Instagram WP
  • AINTstagram
  • Gramp
  • Photogram

  • +1
  • Photos, (for Intagram) "for Intagram" should be small type highlight the photo part, make an icon out of that.
