It’s been a plan for a long time to change the name of the app (again*). This month, we finally took the plunge and renamed the app to Shelfie.
Shelfie is catchy. Many readers already know what a shelfie is. It’s a photo of a bookshelf…with books on it. Readers on Tumblr, Twitter and Instagram know all about #shelfies and bookshelf tours.
We wanted you to know what we do immediately upon hearing the name. We’re all about books and bookshelves. The magic of Shelfie is the ability to take a photo of your bookshelf — a shelfie — and to find out which books are eligible for free or discounted ebooks. The name Shelfie gets that point across.
To keep us searchable in the app store, we’ll keep it Shelfie by BitLit for a good long time – whether you search BitLit or Shelfie you’ll be guaranteed to find us!. Whatever you call us, thanks for downloading the app! Come say hi on @GetShelfie on Twitter or @ShelfieApp on Instagram.
*This isn’t our first name change either. Read about our original name and how we chose BitLit.
