    So I don't really know about making an app but I was wondering if it was possible to make an app that could go in and change the Info.plist files of every app someone has? This is where the naming of apps can be located. Not all apps have the required coding in the Info.plist file so the app would have to be able to add this in at the end:

    <key>UIRoleDisplayName</key>
    <string>"Title"</string>

    Where the user will be able to edit what goes in place of "Title". Just wondering if this was possible, and hoping that some would be interested in making it for 1.1.3/1.1.4. This way people could rename their apps easily. Leave comments saying you would like it even if you don't know how to make it please. Thank you.

    Id really like an app that does this. Someone told me you just rename the ".app" folder name (ex. "mobilemusicplayer.app" would be "music.app") and i had to restore my iPod.
