    Simple question:
    Is it possible to change the shown name of an app?
    I justed installed a 5x5 springboard and some app names are
    too long.

    thx

    Inside every application bundle is an Info.plist file. Inside that file is a key entitled 'CFBundleDisplayName'. You can edit the corresponding string.

    There may be something that does the 'hard work' for you, but I don't know.
