Question: App Name Length

Hi I am working on branding for a whitelabel java application on BlackBerry and I am looking for a little guidance on the length of the name I can use.  This is the name that appears on the bottom of the home screen when the application is highlighted and on the download page.


Does anyone have a best practice for name length or know of a documented character limit for this purpose?


We run on BlackBerry OS 4.2 and higher. 


Thanks in advance.

Re: Question: App Name Length

I've seen no such guide on RIM Developer Resources Site.


It think that it would be better to have app name as short as possible.


Because there is a variety of device models with different display sizes. And if an application name is too big to be displayed (for example on Blackberry Pearl device) it will be truncated.
