TouchNote is now TapNote

Although I hadn’t expected to have an issue with, they evidently didn’t like my use of the word “TouchNote” (despite using it for a completely different purpose on a platform they don’t appear to have any interest in) and rather than ask nicely had their lawyers threaten me with a trademark lawsuit.

Thanks, guys. It’s always a pleasure to interact with people who skip that whole tedious friendly request stage and go straight to threats.

In any case, I don’t have the resources for a legal battle (and would not have used the name in the first place if I thought they’d have a problem with it), so my app is now named TapNote.

The name change is going to take a couple of days to percolate through Palm’s system, but TapNote v1.1 should be in the app catalog probably Friday or Monday, depending on Palm’s turnaround.

    Hi Ian

    It looks like they are interested in the platform.

    “I’m need a Palm Pre / WebOS developer to start on a juicy contract. Know of anyone? Please send ’em my way.”
