Running app gives 2 app icons in Android Studio - newbie

Running app in android studio gives 2 app icons newbie in androi studio

at last i had made my app running , im from eclipse to android studio and now Im having trouble on how to make color of logcat same as eclipse?.

my question is there are 2 app icons when i run the app, and when i uninstall it, 2 of them have been removed. is it normal in android studio?

I have found that android studio can copy keys from eclipse.

I though this is normal in android studio. Running an app gives 2 launcher icons.
PS:

my
AndroidManifest.xml
is inside main folder and I used eclipse to export to gradle build.

Im using Android Studio 0.8.6
thanks.

Answer

I got it! yes at last , i have to study gradles and stuff.

Actually I have 2 android projects inside the Project, one is a library and the other one is the main app.

I found out that when i imported those projects Android Studio (I exported the lib to gradle build from eclipse) doesn't care if that is a lib project or a main project. (Correct me if im wrong ).

so the only thing to make it work is to remove the intent-filter of that lib-android-project.

EDIT: @all solved it ! thanks to everyone, I never knew there was another AndroidManifest.xml , i thought eclipse removed it. and i thought Exporting it to gradle will remove it because it is checked as a library.

thanks for all your help.
