Hiding or changing Tile text of a Silverlight WP7 Application

If you want to have different text on your Windows Phone 7 aplication’s Tile icon, here is the way how to achieve it.
You need to change WMAppManifest.xml file, it is inside the Properties folder in the solution.
There you will see the Title element:

    <Tokens>
      <PrimaryToken TokenID="MyAppToken" TaskName="_default">
        <TemplateType5>
          <BackgroundImageURI IsRelative="true" IsResource="false">Background.jpg</BackgroundImageURI>
          <Count>0</Count>
          <Title>I've changed this</Title>
        </TemplateType5>
      </PrimaryToken>
    </Tokens>

You can also have it blank to remove the text from Tile.
