App of the Week - Namechk

I'm a creative person. It's in my heart and soul to try to find a different way to do things. Photography is my love and the way I make a living for my family, but I day dream all the time about other ideas and what it would take to make them a reality. 

When I come up with a great idea, the first thing I want to do is come up with a great name for it! So what do I do when I come up with that name? First, I check to see if the .com name is available, then the facebook name, then twitter, youtube, google, Pinterest, tumblr, flickr, ebay, reddit, myspace....... the list goes on and on. It takes a long time to go through all of these websites and check to see if the name is available across every platform..... enter Namechk

Namechk is every creative persons best friend! All you have to do is type in the name you want to check and it automatically looks up every single active social media site out there to see if the name is available on it's site! Here's what it looks like below.

The website home page

I entered my name as an example of how the website works and looks.

Green colors are available and red are not

If you see your name is available on a site, all you have to do is click it and it takes you to the website to register your name! It's that easy!!

They also have an app in the itunes app store for all you creatives on the go ;)

I'll be doing an "app of the week" every week to share with you the tools that help me run my business and express myself creatively!

Have a good week!
