    Well...If you already submitted it, I believe it's a little late for someone to help to come up with a name.

    I have no friends. I'm a loser that makes video games all day. Will you be my friend?

    Ok so its not possible to change the name later?

    Well, now you mention it, I think you can. I believe they let you change the name in case of infringement situations and the like. But I don't know what kind of hassle it will be with the app ID's and such in iTunes Connect.

    The main thing is, should you release a game without having a set name already?

    I don't mean this to be condescending or disrespectful, so please do not take it that way. If you want to be taken seriously in the field, I would not release a game to the App Store without it being completed, including the name of the game. Imagine if when Angry Birds was released it was called "Pissed off Poultry" or something like that, and then a couple of months later it changed to Angry Birds. It would be seen as extremely unprofessional, and the developer would not be taken seriously, and people that heard about Pissed off Poultry could not find the game now, because the developer came up with a better name after it was released.

    I don't know if this is your chosen career path, or if it's just a hobby, but either way, if you're going to do something, you should do it right if you want to be taken seriously. Again, please don't think I'm trying to be an ****, I'm just giving you my personal opinion on the situation, and releasing a game with the intention of changing the name later on when you can think of a better one, will be looked at as unprofessional.

    I have no friends. I'm a loser that makes video games all day. Will you be my friend?

    Yeah developing games is an hobby fro me. I can reject the game if i totally changes my mind but if i do that I most wait another 5 days or something. But I like the name and Im just wondering if you guys like it? :)
    And SlickZero you made a pretty funny parable with Angry birds :D
