    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 :cool:

    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.
