Typically, a product name should evoke trust, or be descriptive of the product. Apple usually keeps app names simple. Mail. Contacts. Maps. Reminders.
I found this clever and hand new reminders app for my iPhone with a name that probably offers more insight into the relationship between the app’s developer and his or her mom.
The app is called YellingMom. That’s right. Yelling. And Mom. It’s a reminder app like Reminders but with a few extra features to justify the less than a dollar price tag.
YellingMom sorts each of your reminders into categories– Today, Tomorrow, Someday. Each item can have a separate to do time, and you can add as many items as you can track. It even does notes.
What makes YellingMom different from Reminders? There’s no iCloud sync. There’s no interface to Siri. The name is clever and memorable. But there’s no mother’s voice yelling at you to get something done.
That’s a shame, too, because any reminders app that’s named YellingMom is dying to have a voice yell out your reminders.
