    Hi everyone!

    I've been developing an app for iOS which have sold well, and I am now looking forward to bring the app to android. The problem is the name of the app. Let's say my iOS app is named "iRemote", would it be a mistake to also name the android app "iRemote"? I'm thinking of naming the app "droidRemote" instead, but this might be confusing for my customers looking for the "iRemote" in the android market.

    So what do you think?
    1: Keep the name "iRemote" at both iOS and android to strengthen the trademark.
    2: Name the android app to "droidRemote" to make the name android-friendly.

    Thanks in advance.

    It may be confusing to have two separate names, but in my opinion it will work much better as droidRemote. (I personally can't stand the "i" in front of everything.)
