    I am looking for the name of an App that I read about a while back. From my understanding it would remove the names of the apps when you put them on the screen. Just make it all a little less cluttered. I also recall reading that the extra space from not having names would allow you to put another row of apps on each page.

    Does anybody know what I am talking about or am I taking crazy pills?

    hmmm I recall something like that but not sure what it was........ I believe with ADW Launcher you can completely remove icon names........ personally I use Bettercut and just leave the name fields blank...... but it does still leave a little single space box where the name should be

    Yes, ADW has the option to remove app names. Home screen looks much cleaner:)

    Thanks for the advice. I looked into ADW Launcher a little bit and the problem that I have is that it looks like it would take the place of Sense... am I right on that or am I just a noob?

    Folderorganizer lite has an option of specifying no text when adding an icon to the home screen. I have an HTC Desire and this works fine for me.

    LauncherPro also has an option to remove app names.
