    When you post a review on an app in the market from your phone, it puts up a name automatically on your comments. Anyone know where to change / edit that name ?? I have looked everywhere and cannot find where it comes from. Thanks

    I believe this is the name associated with your Google Profile.

    I tried changing that name in my Google profile, refeshed the info then posted a comment but new name did not show up. It seems like it is....maybe it just takes a little time for the change to come up.

    i hate to do this to you, but any chance you could tell me exactly where you made that change in your google account?

    was it under settings >> accounts and import >> send mail as

    or was it somewhere else?

    thanks

    No.

    If you go to your gmail account on a browser on a PC (or Mac) and up in the right hand corner you will see "google account settings", its in there, in the profile.
