  • After you change the information in Manifest and Tiapp, try importing it as a new project and deleting the old one, then compiling that one (Should be the changed name on the Titanium Developer left column).

    I did that once and it worked :)

    • FYI. I had to delete the build directory after importing. It was throwing some kind of error when I tried to test launch. Forcing a rebuild fixed it.

  • you can change CFBundleDisplayName in Info.plist (copy the build/iphone/info.plist into Ressources/)

  • May be very late but might help someone.

    1. open tiapp.xml
    2. find : <name>YOUR APP NAME</name>
    3. replace : <name>DESIRED APP NAME</name>

  • I was looking for this as well. I don't have a CFBundleDisplayName in info.plist though. I just have CFBundleName. Same thing maybe?

  • For android following would do the trick :-

    - open tiapp.xml
    - find the android tag 
    (would be like <android xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"/>)
    - replace the above code with following :-
    <android xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android" >
    <application android:icon="@drawable/appicon" android:label="YOUR_APP_NAME" />
    </android>
