Adrian O'Connor's Tumblr Thing

Strange, but I was in this exact position earlier this week, for the first time, wanting to relabel the ‘back’ button in an iOS app. The was I wanted to do it was because the ‘home’ screen for my app has the title ‘Clockwork Accounts’ or some such prototype name. That obviously couldn’t go on the button, so I set it to ‘Home’, which made more sense. I did think about setting it to back at one point though…

I will add an article to my knowledge base soon, explaining how to change that text on the fly.
