Application name under Running Applications

Dear all,

we are using the Label attribute for the main activity of our application to give the application a friendly name:

[Activity (Label = "Our name", MainLauncher = true)]
public class OurActivity : Activity {

This works as expected, "Our name" is shown among other installed applications. However, under Setup - Running applications a different name is displayed - project_name.namespace which looks ugly.

Does anybody know how this name can be changed?

Thanks

Alex

    Add the Elemente with the attribute android:label="Our Name" to your AndroidManifest.xml. (directly in the manifest-element)

    NOTICE: there you can also add the attribute "android:icon" to display a nice Icon
