    I found this app in the market this morning. i tried the lite and paid version ($1.14 US). the lite version allows you to take the name off but not change the icon. the paid version lets you select a pic from your gallery. i don't see an option to open an icon pack from the market. hopefully the dev adds that option soon. for now tho, i know lots of you would LOVE to have just the icon and no name.

    IconChangeWidget v1.0 Application for Android | Tools

    ok i just restarted my droid and at first thought the icon disappeared. after about 5 seconds it showed up.

    also please note that this is a WIDGET.

    Thats very cool.

    Helix launcher also now lets you remove the name of the apps. And they stay as apps, not widgets.

    Only version 1.3 of helix allows you to remove the icon names, and I don't believe it's available in the market yet. Donors have access to it, although I bet it won't be long until that feature makes it's way into the public version.

    IconChange Widget looks pretty cool, I like the ability to edit app names. Thanks Corina!

    Basically, donating gives you access to the dev's depository, allowing you to download the latest beta versions before release as well as all previous versions of the app.

    The only added features of Helix 1.3 is the ability to hide the app labels under the icons, hide the notification bar giving you full screen, and the ability to assign any of the 1-7 screens as the default home(nice if you use an even number of screens)

    Sorry to go off topic:)

    Thats cool man. I hear that the paid "Folder Organizer" also lets you chane the names of apps, among other things like placing them in widget folders and such.

    Funny cause I just this morning started a thread asking how do you edit an APK file to change the name of the app... still no good responses. I like that some apps can do it, but I am the type of guy that wants to go right to the source and change things...

    From the home screen, press your settings button [that looks like four horizontal lines.]

    Press configure. (lower left)

    Look under 'Icons (Requires Restart)' section and check the box that says 'Hide Icon Titles.'

    Restart Launcher2

    There, and it looks great. Clean.
