Picking a title for the App Store page is not easy. Just "Mastodon" is taken by someone - I can't find who or what. So needs more words. "for iOS" is redundant and not permitted. "Decentralized" is so long it doesn't leave any characters for the noun. Besides, I don't want any technical jargon. Any words that a random internet user won't immediately recognize. Twitch has it so easy with its "Twitch: Live Game Streaming". Short and clear.

That said, I've never really liked how 99% of mobile app listings have names in the form of "App Name: Description Purpose Bla Bla".

@grishka If I had a registered trademark I'd be able to submit a claim and get the simple name. Trademark registration in the US has been quoted at approx. $2k USD to me.


@Gargron @grishka Does it have to be in the US?

@val @grishka I'm not sure because the advice is US-centric, but Apple is a US-company and the name of the app is localized to English (U.S.)
