    Renaming Apps

    Is there a way to change the name of an app after I download it onto my Droid?

    If you are talking about the name of the app ON the home screen you can try to use AnyCut (or its paid version BetterCut).

    I used them on my G1, but not sure if they work on the DROID.

    BetterCut works on the Droid. I currently use it, and love it.

    I tried AnyCut but it wouldn't do what I wanted. Will BetterCut accomplish an app name change?

    What are you trying to accomplish?

    Are you trying to rename the application on the home screen?

    In that case, then yes, BetterCut works for that purpose. It allows you to change the name and icon that shows up on the homescreen.

    You can't change an apps actual name. Not possible, just like you cant change an apps native icon.

    You CAN use bettercut to add a shortcut to an app on any home screen, use whatever icon you want (search internet for icons, there's millions of em) and name it whatever you want, even just a single blank space which leaves a little grey oval underneath the icon..

    I would use it but I'd like to keep the native icons.

    You don't have to change the icons when using bettercut, that is just one option to do so.

    Ah, ok, maybe it's time to get that. I hate how some of the names trail off etc. Just the OCD in me. I think I had AnyCut on my G1.
