How to change application name in NativeScript

I'm working with NativeScript from Telerik and I made an app with a debug name ("notiApp") but now I can't change the app's name in launcher and action bar.

I already tried configuring my

AndroidManifest.xml
in
/app/App_Resources/Android/
modifying the
android:label
attribute of my
<application>
tag.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<manifest>
<application
android:label="DESIRED NAME">
</application>
</manifest>


Also, I tried changing my project's root directory name for the new app desired name.

There's anything else I can do or any additional information I could provide?

Thanks in advance guys!

Answer

Go into app >> App_Resources >> Android >> values folder.

There should be a strings.xml file - if not create it.

The content should be

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?> <resources> <string name="app_name">DISPLAY APP NAME</string> <string name="title_activity_kimera">APK NAME</string> </resources>

p.s. these stackoverflow content check error messages are annoying!!!
