Can any maker here help me answer a trademark cease and desist letter?

Hi makers,    I'm a fellow indie maker like you. I've been developing an online publishing platform called Airtyper for some time now. It hasn't launched, yet.    Today morning, I got a cease and desist letter from an attorney representing a company called Airtype, who happens to own a trademark for the word "Airtype".    They're asking me to change my product's name to something else.    I checked their website. They're an app design/development service company based in the US. My app is a SaaS app concerning publishing blogs online, company due to be registered in India.    How am I harming their business? I have no idea.    Can anyone help me regarding this? Any advice? Should I change the name? Or fight the case? I'm also seeking legal counsel regarding this.
