    I'm rooted, running Bugless Beast V.8 with Helix Launcher, would like to be able to change the name of the shortcuts.. I've seen it done. How exactly do you do it?

    I installed it and it seems like a cool program but not what I'm looking for. Nice idea though.

    I'm looking to change, for example, on my Home screen it says "Wireless Tether..." I'd prefer it just says Tether. Change AndFTP to FTP, change AndExplorer to Explorer, etc

    bettercut...its not rocket science.

    all you do is add > shortcut > bettercut > pick activity > change icon and name > create...

    Yeah, AnyCut. I splurged and got Better Cut... working well so far. I'm having a bit of difficulty trying to make a short cut to my call log. It's not in the app drawer so I cant do it that way -- there is a custom option but zero instructions on how to go about it.

    Anyone have any luck with creating a shortcut to their Call Log? I have a shortcut to Phone dialer but would much prefer a shortcut to the call log.

    Thanks for your time..
