Just wondering: is it possible to change the name which is displayed underneath the icons on the home pages ?
I added some short cuts to internet pages on these pages, and they use way too long names . It would be nice if I could change them.
Yes, it works for internet bookmarks. From your browser, select Menu > Bookmarks. Long-press the given bookmark and select Edit Bookmark; this will allow you to change its name. You may need to delete/re-add the shortcut to your home page for the change to take affect.
EDIT1: Alternatively, if you use a bookmark manager app (like any of the ones mentioned here), you should be able to edit the bookmark directly from there.
LauncherPro is a great Home Switcher app, personally is the best.
Between the different dozens of useful features it provides also the possibility to change the text of all home icons that are shortcuts to applications, to bookmarks, etc.
