Whoa, not called app store?!

Why the rotating menu, you ask?

In the summer of 2011, Apple sent Amahi a legal threat for using "app store" in the menu area for where you buy apps for Amahi (up there, second tab). The community submitted alternative names and Amahi started complying with the cease and desist letter.

Instead of using one term for our app store, people liked the different names you suggested! So we started cycling the top suggested names randomly in that menu!

There was a lenghty facebook discussion (below), along with a lot of submissions for names (to the right, with vote counts). Thanks for stepping up!

We also developed a parody game app, Amahi Invaders, to celebrate the occasion!

Keep it clean and healthy. This is all for fun and games, however, we don't want anyone getting hurt. Two winners will be selected at random by the team. The winning prizes are a Plug Computer and a year of Amahi Pro membership. Winner will be selected from the users submitting names while logged in, the Facebook users commenting on this page and users tweets referring to this page. One entry per person at most. Amahi is not responsible for individual's comments or submissions, which are subject to moderation. By submitting name and/or idea to Amahi, via Amahi's web site, via email or via other means, you give all rights you may have to the name/idea to Amahi for Amahi's use and accept Amahi's Terms of Service and Privacy Policy. No purchase necessary, void where prohibited, blah, blah, you know the drill.
