Is it possible to have different name for the icon than the app name?

I’d like to have a shorter name for my icon shortcut on my phone than the actual app name. Is that possible …couldn’t find any settings for that in Expo …but I think it might be there somewhere.

Best …,
Andy

Hey @caminoninja,

You can configure this by editing the name property in your app.json. https://docs.expo.io/versions/v33.0.0/workflow/configuration/#name

Hi @adamjnav,

So if I get it right, expo.name in the file app.json is the name of the Icon Label and not the name of the App?

Yep, it’s the value that is shown on the home screen.

@adamjnav this will change the name of the App as well.
