We are happy to announce our latest release: Name Dice!
This free iOS app makes character naming easy by providing nearly a million unique names at your fingertips!
How does Name Dice work?
Name Dice randomly generates a first and last name pair from lists of hundreds of names.
Basically, Name Dice makes names. It does NOT make you more creative, write your story for you, make sandwiches, refill your glass, clean your room, or knit you a sweater.
If you are stuck on getting a story idea, or ideas for a main character, Name Dice can help you. Maybe you’re a spy and you need a new identity. Maybe you and your friend want to pretend to be someone else when you go out to lunch. Maybe you are having a sleepover and you and your friends are going to pretend to be celebrities and you need help coming up with a good name. Maybe you are a writing a novel about your mom and you want to publish it under another name so she doesn’t find out about it.
Whatever the reason, Name Dice can give you some ideas for just the right name!
True Confession of a Distracted Writer
“One reason I love this app is that it just feeds my imagination! I roll the dice, see the name, and my mind is immediately buzzing with activity creating a life story for the name. If I don’t like the name for whatever reason, I just roll again! Voila!”
How do I save my favorite name?
The easiest way is to take a screenshot by holding down the home button and the power button simultaneously. It’s a good idea to practice this before you need to use it. After you take the screenshot, you can find the photo in your iOS device’s Camera Roll. You can share the photo on Facebook or your blog.
We hope you enjoy this fun little free app! We’d love to connect with you on facebook and twitter and hear stories about your alter egos!
Our second app, QI IQ, is now available in the iTunes App Store. QI IQ is a tool to help learn which two letter words are valid in Scrabble®, Words With Friends, or Bananagrams. Knowing most or all of the valid two letter words makes it much easier to join your words in higher-scoring positions.
QI IQ lets you rapidly drill words whenever you have a few minutes. It keeps track of which words you’re struggling with and shows them more frequently. We hope you find it useful!
Our first update of Lists for Writers is now available in both the iTunes App Store and the Amazon Appstore for Android. The update adds some additional lists that users have suggested:
- Land forms – geographic features
- People – relationships
- Dialog verbs
- World cities
The update also now supports iOS version 4.0 or higher. Previously only iOS version 4.3 or higher was supported but we heard from several iPhone owners that are still on 4.2 or 4.1.
Thank you for your feedback and we’re happy to hear any more suggestions from users!
Our first app, Lists for Writers, is now available in the Tunes App Store. It took a bit over a week to get approved. We’re still learning the process but this is a good first step. There are more apps coming up soon and hopefully something for Android users, especially all of our friends (and own kids) with Kindle Fires.
