    Interesting; not a single response, so it looks like it can't be done...

    I'd be interested in renaming the app labels to make them easier to group or search for.

    I think you either need to use a replacement home app or an app like bettercut to do this. I've been looking into it, but haven't tried it yet. I'll update if I find something that works.

    I am curious about this, too. I'd like to rename a couple apps (icons) myself.

    Okay, Betttercut (about 2$) allows editing of both names and icons, and has quite a few icon packs available. Might be a good option for someone who doesn't want to change home apps.

    just curious to why you would want to do this?

    Because, for instance, "The Weather Channel" under the app icon shows "The Weath". I'd rather it say "Weather".

    Still too many serious user complaints (FC, slow...) on the Market for my taste; let others be guinea pigs first! :)
