    Just wondering if I could change the names in the little bubbles on the icons on the home screen.

    I'd like handcent to just say SMS and dolphin HD to just say browser

    Is this possible?

    FolderOrganizer will let you do this.

    I think BetterCut does, too.

    FolderOrganizer has this option, is free, and easy. You can't completely remove names (there will always be that bubble) but anything else is possible.

    Great, thanks guys. I just want the names kind of cropped. I have a little OCD about names not fitting in the bubbles.

    I just wanted to change crap like "Dolphi-" to "Browser"

    +1 for bettercut. You CAN change the names with it. You can even change icons if you so desire.

    long press on your screen, the select widgets, then select "FolderOrganizer Item" then select "Apps" then select the App you want. when it appears on your scren it will have whatever new name or icon you used FolderOrganizer to change it to.
