We would like to introduce our new brand and trademark name:
What happend with Makeroid ?
We wanted to have something unique, something which can easily identify us. Makeroid was composed by “make” and “andRoid”, and both words were used a lot nowadays
Also, containing the word “Android” on the name restricts a little bit our possibilities. As AppInventor is working on an iOS version, it wouldn’t make sense to be called with something containing Android and offering something releated with iOS
Why Kodular ?
Well, it took us several days to decide a new name. We finally made up a word which can suit us: Kodular
The word Kodular comes from joining two words:
- Kode -> This derivates at the same time from Code. We decided to add a K to it to make it different from the normal word. We pretend to tell that we provide a pseudo-code service, so it’s better calling it using a different word but at the same time similar
- Modular -> We provide a “modular coding” service. Also, we will change our products names from services to modules, in a way we will provide different modules for app development such us the Creator or the Store
We also want to say that the word Kodular in Estonian means “the core”, so we think it perfectly suits us in a way we provide the core of the introduction to coding
If you are wondering how to pronounce it, it’s really easy to figure it out:
As it comes from Kod+ular, then just join each word’s pronunciation and you will have it:
We know changes are hard to accept, but we are sure you will like our new name as soon as you get used to it
