    Is there a way to edit the App Drawer from saying Droid

    to something else? If so how can I do that?

    Thanks

    Your app drawer is talking to you? Might want to do a voice search for mental health clinics in your area.

    You sir are of absolutely no help, but hilarious. Thanks for the chuckle!

    If you are rooted there are a number of different roms that change the app drawer. The new Helix app draw in mute and blank (says nothing).

    I believe you don't need to be rooted to use Helix...which is now my favorite home screen app.

    For sports96: I know it can be changed. This thread probably belongs in the hacking section rather than general questions too, so I suspect a mod will come along and move it soon.

    I've seen threads where folks discussed changing (and had changed) the "handle" on the stock app drawer so this is possible. Asking in the thread where the rom was rolled out might get a reply from the dev too. Good luck.

    Just contact the dev, or post on a thread for that ROM, someone will let you know how.

    I remember reading a thread about a guy that had changed the color of the word Droid depending on whether the app drawer was open or closed?? Or was it based on which home screen he was on?? Anyway he did change it. There was another where a guy had changed the shape to be more like the "Droid Red Eye". So, it can be done, you'll just have to search and find those threads and get hints from those guys. Good luck.

    Hmmm...I've never noticed this on the app drawer, and rooted now so don't see it.

    On a simular note, I would like to see an App where you speak, "What's your name?" and the phone answers with the iconic, "DROID". That would freek out the iPhone kids.

    There are three drawer handle png files, for three different states (normal, selected, and pressed) so all you'd need to do is make the "pressed" one a different color to achieve this.
    Here is a thread on how to change the drawer handle images:
