I want to name my app in Arabic without internationalization (i.e hard code), but it is a limitation in Appcelerator Studio. I really want to request for this support. Thank you.

    Hi, We are successful to change app name in a language other than English without internationalization for android only . You Just need to add following code in tiapp.xml .
         <android xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android">
                           android:label="صحیح القصص" android:name=".HarisActivity" android:theme="@style/Theme.Titanium">
                               <action android:name="android.intent.action.MAIN"/>
                               <category android:name="android.intent.category.LAUNCHER"/>
    Please find the attached screen shot . Thanks

    @Harish Mridha: Hi, I tried this solution in a stand alone test app. What it does is making a copy of app with this Arabic name but when i click on it app crashes. And when I uninstall the app both (orignal and the copy) gets uninstall. I want to name the actual app in Arabic not to make a copy of my app. Thanks.
