I created the Ionic framework project with some name. I did all the page design and other stuff. I think the development is completed. It's time to deploy the app to the play store. But I want to change the app name. How to change the app name?. Do I need to create a new project?. No. You can change the app name at any time using the config.xml file.

Go to the config.xml file in the root of your project. It looks like below.

<name>App Name</name>

This will change app_name in platforms/android/res/values/strings.xml

<string name="app_name">App Name</string>

Change the App name to your desired name.

Generate the APK and test it on the device using the below command.

ionic cordova run android

Please note. It won't change the Ionic project name. I will change the name of the APK only.


In this tutorial, you learned how to change the app name after created the Ionic project.
