Max Application Name Length

I know there is not a reasonable physical limit to the application name, but should there be a guideline to the name length?  If the name gets a little long, it gets truncated in the simulator with ellipses appended to it (e.g. "Papillion Con...").  And when the app is minimized, it does not even get the ellipses.  Is this just a bug and we might get work wrap in the icon list and in the minimized view, get the full name or should we keep application names to 13-14 characters?

Re: Max Application Name Length

good point john. i wonder if its different now as apposed to the way its going to be in the actual device. id hate to have the name of my application be truncated. doesnt looks so nice. I think from the videos, the bottom label in a minmized application looks better than in hte simulator. but i cant be 100% sure.
