    Is there a way to change/specify the name of a .app? The only way I understand is to simply create a new project with a different name and then import the settings and files from the old project. But that seems like a silly way of doing it.

    I need to do this in a way that guarantees the app will show up with the specified name after being downloaded from the AppStore.

    Thanks,
    Josh

    You can change the bundle name in info.plist. It'll be set to ${Project_Name} or something at the moment but you can simply change that to your new app name.

    You can also change the (file) product name for the target (in the targets info settings window), and change the display name in the Info.plist.
