App names and uniqueness across accounts

I just tried to create a second app in my account and when I entered the name, I got a warning message that the name was already taken and apparently I can’t create the app. Is this an error in the system or is it how it is supposed to work?
Do app names have to be unique across the entirely off all Bubble accounts? Does the issue go away once you have a custom domain?

It seems like lots of people might want to build an internal corporate app and should not have to worry about namespace collisions.

Any idea here?


Yes, currently names have to be unique across the user base (like Twitter handlers). Now as soon as you are on a domain the app name is transparent to your users, they won’t see it.
