What's New in Version 1.4
Small bug fixes
Has potential but too buggy
I was looking for an app like Pandora that would help me find potential names based on my preferences rather than making me wade through random lists of names. At first, this seemed to perfectly fit the bill-- it has a sleek interface and, initially, seemed to actually be giving us intelligent selections. Unfortunately, there's some kind of major bug that causes it to randomly forget your likes and dislikes between sessions, which limits the AI's ability to actually tailor its suggestions to you. I confirmed with the developer that this is a known issue "on some devices" that they're trying to address, but I'm on an iPhone 6 so it seems pretty inexcusable that they're still charging for an app that won't work for most users. I've tried to keep using it anyway, but, even within a single session, the suggestions have become so out of left field that I'm having a hard time believing it's anything but random. Could be due to the memory issue, but could be another problem completely. In any case, this app doesn't seem to be ready for the public.
Could be great..
Could be great, but A. it takes too long to swipe through names, and B. I find it really unnecessary how it shows the percentage of people who like/dislike a name. It's not relevant because it's not an accurate depiction of how popular the name is. It's just mildly offensive to names you like, and rather misleading overall because people are more inclined to swipe dislike when they're looking for a specific type of name. It's not really indicative of whether they like that name or not. I swipe no on names I do like because they don't sound good with my last name. Understand? I'd recommend ranking the name by its numeric popularity instead. I think that'd be much more ideal for users. Hope someone reads this and considers it. EDIT: I must add after using the app awhile, it's become blatantly clear that a LOT of the country origins are inaccurate. (I.e. Mathilda is not Arabic? Elektra is not French?)
After putting in my favorites that I already had in mind, this app was on the right track in suggesting names that I really liked but hadn't thought of. Exactly what I was looking for in an name generator.
Things that would be great: if it took less time on between searching names and if there was an option to compare lists with others lists for compatibility.
