AppIconNameChanger

Change Android App launcher Icon and App Name programmatically !

Download Demo APK from HERE

Kindly use the following links to use this library:

In build.gradle (Project)

allprojects {
 repositories {
 ...
 maven { url "https://jitpack.io" }
 }
}

And then in the other gradle file(may be your app gradle or your own module library gradle, but never add in both of them to avoid conflict.)

dependencies {
 compile 'com.github.myinnos:AppIconNameChanger:1.0'
}

How to use

Step 1: set activity alias in manifest file : #Example

<application
         .........
        
       <!-- main activity-->
       <activity android:name=".MainActivity" />

        <!-- setting activity-alias names-->
        <activity-alias
            android:name="in.myinnos.changeappiconandname.MainActivity-settings"
            android:enabled="true"  //enabled by default launcher
            android:icon="@drawable/ic_settings"  //app icon
            android:label="@string/app_settings"  //app label/name
            android:targetActivity=".MainActivity">
            <intent-filter>
                <action android:name="android.intent.action.MAIN" />
                <category android:name="android.intent.category.LAUNCHER" />
            </intent-filter>
        </activity-alias>

        <activity-alias
            android:name="in.myinnos.changeappiconandname.MainActivity-camera"
            android:enabled="false"
            android:icon="@drawable/ic_camera"  //app icon
            android:label="@string/app_camera" //app label/name
            android:targetActivity=".MainActivity">
            <intent-filter>
                <action android:name="android.intent.action.MAIN" />
                <category android:name="android.intent.category.LAUNCHER" />
            </intent-filter>
        </activity-alias>

        .........

</application>

Step 2: implement App Icon Name Changer method : #Example

// Active alias name
String activeName = "in.myinnos.changeappiconandname.MainActivity-settings";

// Disable alias names
List<String> disableNames = new ArrayList<String>();
disableNames.add("in.myinnos.changeappiconandname.MainActivity-camera");
disableNames.add("in.myinnos.changeappiconandname.MainActivity-message");

// Initiate App Icon Name Changer
new AppIconNameChanger.Builder(MainActivity.this)
                .activeName(activeName) // String
                .disableNames(disableNames) // List<String>
                .packageName(BuildConfig.APPLICATION_ID)
                .build()
                .setNow();

IMP Note: To change application launcher icon and the application name should wait for 10 Seconds(MAX) to refresh the launcher.
