Intent chooser dialog shows package name besides the Activity label

If I send files via

Intent
to other applications, the chooser dialog on Samsung devices shows the package name of my application besides the defined
Activity
labels. On Nexus devices I only see the labels, as expected. How to fix this issue?


  • On Galaxy Note 3 both, label and package name are shown (see screenshot)

  • On Galaxy S3 only the package name is visible

Ok, I got it. It happens only if you use equal labels for your Activities. Some devices show you the package name for better differentiation.
