Android Rename Android apps - this is how it works


Have you ever wanted to rename an application on your Android smartphone or tablet? This is possible thanks to third-party apps, but you cannot rename the applications on your Android device directly as the names of the apps are legally protected. Therefore, you can only create a shortcut to a specific app, the name of which you can then change as you wish.
