Forum Xamarin Xamarin.iOS

Space in Output name

The name of my app is Puzzle Maker, so I want the final app to be called Puzzle I set 'Puzzle Maker' to be the Assembly name in Xamarin Studio, but when I try to merge the mono environment, it fails. It works if I name it anything else that does not have a space. Any ideas on how to fix?

    The name of the .app file doesn't matter. It's not what shows up on the user's home screen. That is set in the Info.plist file. You can change it by going to the project properties and editing the Application Name property in the iPhone Application section.

    Hi Adam, Thanks for the response. This is for a Mac App.

    Ah, sorry. Xamarin really needs to put the forum name in the email notifications. :/

    There may be a better way, but maybe you could do a post-build step to copy and rename the .app.

    That might work, but does that mess with the signing of the App? Can you make these changes post signing?
