Vote Now: Here are the 5 choices for the new Itsdagram name!
UPDATE: Poll Closed at 1am ET!
After one thousand comments in just under two-hours, careful deliberation by the Windows Phone Central staff and Itsdagram developer Daniel Gary, we have narrowed your suggestions down to five choices:
- Spry (for Instagram)
- Lensa (for Instagram)
Where you see ‘(for Instagram)’ is for suggested app names that can go either way in the Store, so judge them either as a standalone or in full.
Voting will only be open for 4 hours and ends promptly at 1AM ET—so get your vote in early! You can of course follow the vote results as they come in by refreshing and we’ll announce a winner later on tonight (assuming we’re still awake).
To everyone who suggested an app name: thank you for participating! To those five who made it to the final round, congratulations! We’ll of course reveal the winner, who gets their name in the app and a $50 gift-certificate to our Store in a follow up post. Good luck!
If on your Windows Phone, simply head to m.wpcentral.com in IE to vote mobile!

Your loss... (joking)
Thanks for liking Spry though guys, small victory for me!
In any case, I personally don't like Pseudogram, but I do think that whatever the name is, it should have at-least the letters "gram" in it for better discoverability of the app in the app store.
My suggestion was Instagrammy....
Though, I gotta admit, I can't really decide between them all... I like all of them.
Regardless, I want it to start with a 'i' so I can still use the jumplist when thinking instagram.
"PICTURE APP" would suffice though.
(Let's see who gets this one...)
I guess that proves how mean can the Instagram people be.
I even mentally yelled it every time I read it.
It's rather difficult to add to the river when it is already flooded. However, some of these new ones DO stand out.
Too late now, but how about Instamatic ... or would whoever owns the bones of Kodak sue you as well?
I made a litle mock-up (like my idea for the name thing) but using "Instance" instead.
Yes I'm bitter and broke. I voted for Instance because it the only name up there that should have beat mine.
And not to mention potential legal action from shutterbug for stealing their name
i would vote for lensa or spry if you remove "FOR instagram" from it
I learned my lesson. Never expect an honest contest from this website no matter what.
The first option above might as well have been "LalaBlablacam"
I'm not saying I should have won this competition. No. One of your top picks was "Live Gram" and you posted that "Gram" was not what you were looking for. My choice was "Live Share" and even though it wasn't the best name here (Instance was and deserves the win) my choice was, according to your preferences in the previous post, better than "Live gram" Because "Live Share" did not contain gram but contained something other which you recommended. Do you see what I'm talking about?
I'm merely saying that if contest are given they need to be more carefully looked at and taken more seriously. There are people on this website like me who can barely pay their car insurance and cell phone bills every month yet when an opportunity arises to actually put forth effort in hopes of winning something for a change, Joe, in his luxury home takes a goofy picture or throws out this name that doesn't even make sense and he's a lucky winner.
There are so many people that appreciate the support and community on WP Central so the least you could do is take us more seriously. Thank you
Nothing personal, your system is flawed thats all.
Also, when people hear "...for Instagram" they autmatically know 1) A function of the app, 2) They autmatically link it to Instagram, which is great and 3) The developers can eventually make a spinoff app/filter for Instagram across all platforms, pushing WP recognition even further. Also, when people hear "Pseudogram" or anything ending in "gram" they'd automatically think it's a knock-off of Instagram, and that's not going to help our platform.
I arrived to the initial naming thread an hour too late. I'd have love to submit:
PhotoHub for Instagram
Pickr for Instagram
Flicksta for Instagram
Polygram for Instagram
LiveView for Instagram
Sigh, I'm sure Rubino and Gary would have loved some of those names.
I would've preffered "Grammit!"
Almost half of your picks contained "Gram".
Sorry, Contest are fun when the contest holders aren't deceptive and take it seriously especially when there's a prize.
That was the point I was making. Not questioning your taste, rather you incitement ;)
For my vote, I would choose Pseudogram.
In fact, they sound similar too. Ones just a mispronunciation of the other.

...since, you know, it looks like "Instance" is gonna win.
But Instant gram would be nice. Unfortunately I came too late for the poll... :/
