I'm not even considering generic names. I couldn't have put the reason
better in words myself than tosky did.

As the votes stand now, the name will probably be Kapture (+3), but
I'm still hoping that someone can suggest a non-K name that's a real
thing (not ScreenGenie or some made up thing; like Dolphin is a real
thing) and that blows everyone's minds away.

What do you guys think about Selfie anyway? I wasn't able to find any
app that was called Selfie, and after the initial cringe, I gave it
some thought and my two cents - I like the edgy, err, youthful,
totally non-enterprise, couldn't give two hoots about "corporate
branding" vibe that this gives off. And of course, I couldn't say this
enough times, a screenshot is a computer taking a selfie.
