Am looking for an Android app that has the ability to change the name of installed apps. I prefer a free app. Also the app should provide the facility to change the name back to its original(its not mandatory). Is there any ?

  • Are you trying to change the name in the launcher or change the name of the actual app? Nov 17, 2014 at 10:33

You can achieve this by using a different launcher. Nova Launcher allows you to change the name of each app. If you long-press an app within the app draw. Although it does not store the original name, you can modify it again to display the original app name.
