Home shortcuts are not automatically updated. When you change name or icon you must recreate it. Or you can you use widgets instead of shortcuts, widgets are automatically updated.

Gmail app is not listed in Folder Organizer
This is a known issue, I hope I’ll fix soon. But you can create a shortcut to a gmail label, final result is very similar

When I restart my device all home shortcuts have the same label
This is an issue on some devices (maybe an Android bug), if you create widgets instead of shortcuts it works correctly

Can I install Folder Organizer on sd card?
No, unfortunately it’s not possible. As developer guide says applications with widgets shouldn’t be moved on sd card:

Scrollable widgets don’t seem to work for me, why?
Scrollable widgets work only with alternative home, for example ADW, LauncherPro and PowerStrip. If you use LauncherPro you need to manually enable scrollable widgets from LauncherPro preferences.

I use LauncherPro, when I update Folder Organizer I lost icons of my home shortcuts, why?
It seems to be a bug of Launcher Pro, I have reported it in LauncherPro forum but I got no answer:

However if you press menu button and click on preferences -> restart LauncherPro icons are restored.

Can I create home shortcuts with no text under icon?
You need to create widgets instead of shortcuts on the home. When you create a widget you can see a checkbox on top of the list, just incheck it to hide label under icon
