    Is this possible? Maybe to change Apollo to AIM or something like that?

    Thanks :)

    You can probably get away with it on many apps. It's as simple as renaming any other file...slowly double click on the app's name and just type something new.

    But I can think of some apps where upgrades look for the previously installed version and won't be able to find it if it's been renamed. A notable example was the Safari 3 beta...if you had renamed Safari 2, the 3 beta installer wouldn't be able to find it and wouldn't allow you to install the beta.
