Please developers, stop the iNaming of apps already

Just because it goes on an iPhone or iPod, that doesn't mean every single app needs an "i" in front of the name. That is getting old fast. It's iNuff already.

iAgree. iDon't know how devs think that's going to help out their product. iRonically, it always make them look cheap, like their trying hop on board the Apple train. You'd think they's have a little more iMagination than that.
(BTW, there's an app called "iMagination")

iThink it's ok for Apple, but everyone else needs to lay off of it

Can we use 'u' instead. Like uFish, uBowl or uBoat.

anything with a lowercase vowel in front of it is actually a turn off for me
