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)
  • Pseudogram
  • Livegram
  • Instance
  • 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!

You shut down the poll before I could bring in my winner:  Instagrahamcracker
 
Your loss... (joking)

I think the voting will be little biased knowing WP Central's and devloper's comments. 
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. 
 
 

I'm with him on Pseudogram.  I didn't think of this until after submission close, but I think Pixdachrome would be good, too.

Growing the social network, (by quite a lot, if I correctly recall the big downloads this app has,) without needing to do any work at all?

How upset can instagram get when they don't even have a wp app hence why his app exists. Lol well they can but come on. What's funny this is probably the most telling news that an instagam app is coming soon.

still, lensa and spry sound weird imo. Instance gives the notion of being related to Instagram in a sense, while still being a different name. At least thats what i think, anyways. Others i entitled to their opinions as well. May the most popular name win.

I wanted to submit semaphore but I was like 1 second too late. Wikipedia it, its abstract unique with a nod to the history of the technology. Weep that you can't have it!

If the name doesn't have "gram" in the name then it will be overlooked in the store and suffer from lack of downloads. I prefer Livegram!

Not necessarily. Instance could give the notion of being related to instagram, and I assume the Windows Store uses tags or some other similar system for searching, so as long as it was listed properly, it could be better than something with gram in it ("Instagram" excluded)

I actually am not a big fan of any of them. I saw some better names in the previous post. But for the sake of voicing my thoughts, i will still vote.

That was our personal recommendation, but there were still like 70% of submissions with 'gram in the title. For the final vote, we tried to spread it out a little...some with 'gram, some without.

Eh.. Not crazy about any of these. Pseudogram got my vote. I pray Instance doesn't win! That would be a travesty.. Lol

Pseudo = Fake/Counterfeit.  Sorry, but Pseudogram just has a negative connotation, in my opinion.  Seems as though the app uses legal means to accomplish what it was created for.
 
Instance FTW!

Given that it's not official it could also be likened to being written under a pseudonym. Doesn't change tthe quality of content though.

Integrity man! You don't change the guidelines for countless people who don't proof-read your article! You made your job harder by doing that.

I agree with clbarker.. Those 70% should've been the large chunk of people that got disqualified. Making your decision a lot easier.

Wow. So this is what it came down to!? Eh...not a good selection in my opinion. I'm not gonna vote, but I will predict that the name will be pseudogram.

I liked instamatic.
Regardless, I want it to start with a 'i' so I can still use the jumplist when thinking instagram.

While none is particularly appealing to me, I think Instance is the best one.

Spry is a cool name but makes no sence to me, given the App in question. (Pseudogram is cool as a joke to throw at Instagram for a while but not as a permanent name.)

My guess there would be a problem with Lensa name, given that Lensa is a WorldPress theme that lets you connect to your Instagram account and view pictures. I could be wrong of course.

Crap, I thought I had gotten my suggestion of SuddenOunce in, but I guess it didn't go through.
(Let's see who gets this one...)

Spry. Figured I better vote before they close it early again. Not cool. Anyways, I'm so tired of the phrase "gram" I'm going with Spry.

Instance isn't good! No one will be able to find it! The title doesn't have anything to do with Instagram that relates to it! I pick Pseudogram!

They'll find it the same way they find something like Rowi...if it's popular it will be found.

Lensa or Instance, I suppose.. Anything is better than the old name, sorry but Itsdagram was weird to pronounce.

It's cuter if you put it that way but still, I was like 'errr' most of the times I stubmled on the name/app. :P
I guess that proves how mean can the Instagram people be.

Im late in the party when i read the news i tried to comment but it does not accepted. Hope daniel read it from app review

Problem with the new names (Without instagram) are that it isn't obvious that it is third-party for Instagram.  So this means that people with Windows Phone who generally are not on websites like this will not know of this app.

Forget this changing name crap and work on the filters. Who cares what its called? :P

Yeah I got that. But that raises the question why don't the care that Daniel is profiting off of illegal access to their APIs? Doesn't add up to be honest.

Maybe the official client is on its way, and they dont care for an unnoficial one in the store to play the C&D card, I dunno.

Instance sounds good. Like someone said earlier, the original was awesome. Sucks they're making you change it. Hope the new name will be as catchy. Good work on the app btw. But in all seriousness I use WPC every day and you guys are awesome for the constant flow of content you bring on here. Sorry for the ass kissing. Well deserved though.

Usually devs are not great with design and names.. let that to someone that is more creative with that, i liked lensa and instance

All the suggest names in the article are wack. The current name is way better. Don't change the name. Leave it alone. Just continue to improve the app.

This dude bellow said "Microgram".. Now, that's got to be the best one yet! How did you guys miss that??

I wanted to say Shutterbug but it was to late. But yea will (For Instagram) be in the titles I need to know before I vote

My was better Daniel photofeed and you can eventually turn into a windows phone instragam product when they build up enough users....using gram is just copying.....photofeed makes sense consider it up for a vote

Let's do a fun little test using some names currently in the Marketplace with the ones up for voting now...
 
WPGram
Metrogram
Livegram
Instagraph
Spry
InstaCam
#2InstaWithLove
Justgramm
Winstagram
Instance
#2InstaWithMassiveLove
Lensa
Aztagram
Pseudogram
Photogram
Insta Boobs
 
It's rather difficult to add to the river when it is already flooded. However, some of these new ones DO stand out.

I voted for instance ... but I don't really like any of the suggestions that much.
Too late now, but how about Instamatic ... or would whoever owns the bones of Kodak sue you as well?
 

Instance if Spry only if (For Instagram) wasn't in it. Any name with gram in it is corny in my opinion

I have to say, I almost made it. I personally think my choice "Live Share" sounds much better than "Live Gram" but hey... there's a company named Google so I rest my case.
Yes I'm bitter and broke. I voted for Instance because it the only name up there that should have beat mine.
