Xarc is nice too!

It's just there's this company called Sparx which sells Enterprise Architect.. Not sure to choose a name so similar. There's the weird spelling too which 80% of all people will do wrong. Apart from that I like it Wink

I still think it's a huge mistake to not name it with something with XBMC in the name. It would be the easiest way to get new users to understand what it is, or to even find it.
I mean, If I search on "XBMC" on the market and got 6 hits where one of them is called xyz at the bottom of the list, I wouldn't dream of installing it. Why would I, when there are 5 others that is listed higher in priority from my searching string, especially when there's another app that is called "XBMC remote control" on the market. The only reason I would install a name called xyz then I search of something else, is if I know that it's this one I want.
Creativity is a good thing.. but in this case, naah, I doubt it.

XXBMC - Xperience XBMC

XBMC Live remote

But nothing is as good and simple as "XBMC remote" Wink
Maybe it's a boring name, but in my eyes, I rather see boring simplicity, then innovativeness incomprehensible.

IMO XBMC Remote in its simplicity is perfect. However, I must say I like
XBMC Zapp och XBMC Zapper but sparcx and xarc are great aswell.

I think I agree with starchild but XBMC Zapper still sells it equally good imo.

Cheers,
Tobias

There are already 5 apps that have XBMC and remote in there name -> http://www.appbrain.com/search?q=xbmc
We should stand out of that list in some way.
