    Question APP DEV - Need help renaming 2 apps I created

    Probably a simple solution for this, however I'm new to making applications and this is frustrating me.
    I made a couple of simple apps to view a couple of websites for a work project (we are giving away a couple of tablets for a promotion and want our websites pre-installed in app format).
    I just used app inventor to make them as they are really simple. However app inventor won't let me save the apps with spaces or other characters in the name.


    The 2 apps just need to be renamed to show as their names when installed "Haystack Info" and "Moore & Scarry". As you can see my current naming is kinda lame and my boss wants it changed.


    here are the apks:
    MooreandScarry.apk
    Haystack_Info.apk


    I already tried using marketizer but that kept giving me errors, same with "app to market".
    Any help is much appreciated

    This may be way over my head, but I'll give it a shot in the morning.

    The apk names are arbitrary.... Your app name when installed comes fom the tile you give your app in the manifest.
