Android label and name

Sannyasin Brahmanathaswami via use-livecode
I need to build two versions of an Android app, one for production and
another for testing. It appears that the standalone builder uses the
"name" property as the icon label in the Android launcher. I need the
stack name to stay the same, and only the label to differ.

I have tried building with only the label string changed, but in the
launcher it still appears as the stack name. Is there a way to
differentiate the label without changing the stack name?

IMNSHO that would be a bug.

Object labels are for display to end-users; object names are for
developers to code for.

Please post the bug # here so we can follow its progress.

I'm not sure yet if it's a bug or just something extra I should add to
the manifest. Android uses a complex inheritance for labelling which I
don't quite understand.

I can change the app icon label. I just changed one and it works. You do
mean the one specified in the Android Standalone settings? I change them all
the time on both iOS and Android.

It turns out Ralph is right, and I've closed my bug report. I'm not sure
why it wasn't working before, but that was back when I was having all
sorts of issues with LC/prefs files/crashes so maybe that was it.
