Is there any way to turn off the names appearing when you hover over apps on the docks?

Why would you want to? It helps in quickly identifying apps, especially if they have similar icons.

I can tell what they are without the labels, and it would appear more classy without em is all (just my opinion, dont shoot me lol). If its not possible to turn off the labels, no big deal.

There is no 'setting' to uncheck, but where there's a will there's a way.

Don't worry we won't shoot you.:D
