    Default Customize the app name by the User

    Can it be possible to customize the Name of the application (App title shown on the Home Screen).

    For example , lets take the following scenario:

    i) User will be given some preferences in the settings of the Application( Using Settings.bundle).
    ii) Let the user was given settings to select different areas (India, Pakistan, Srilanka, Africa.. etc).
    iii) Then based on the selected language in the preferences, Can it be possible to change the application name to be shown on the Home Screen, any way..

    Also , need a clarification, does it clashes with APPSTORE HIG in any of the way.

    Please share the views and ideas.

    Pramod Jain.

    Not possible. The springboard reads from the plist file within the app. If you change this you'll break the codesigning and the springboard will refuse to launch the app.
