Change/Edit Android Name And App Icon

Apk Edit - Edit Your Apk File (Android App) 

You want to edit apk file(android app) directly without the need of eclipse or command line build utility? Yes You can do it using APK Edit Utility

                                       *******FOR EDITING NAME*******

  1. Step 1: First of all, we will need the APK package of the app you want to rename and change the icon for. If you don’t have the APK with you, but the app is installed on your phone, you can easily compile its APK using the Astro file manager. We have already discussed how you can make APK files of the installed apps (by backing it up using this app in link above) while talking about transferring the installed apps from one device to another over Bluetooth.
  2.  Step 2: Download and extract APK Edit v0.4 to a folder in your computer. As APK Edit v0.4 needs Java to work, please install it if you don’t already have it.

  3.  Step 3: Now that you have both – the APK file and the APK editor – let’s start with the editing. Launch APK Edit.exe that you extracted in the previous step and load the APK file you want to edit.

         Step 4: The tool will now read the file and display the app icon and name under the General tab. You can edit the name text field directly and click on the icon image to search for a new icon. Please make sure that the icon file is in PNG format and is a perfect square in dimensions

             Step 5: After you are done with the editing, click on the Apply button to save the changes.
Although the app gives you an option to directly push the apps to the device using a data cable, I would suggest you to transfer the modified APK file to your internal hard disk using Wi-Fi or data cable and then install it on the device.

Even while installing the file you will see the changes in the file name and the app icon. After the app’s installed, you will see the app with the user defined icon and name.

                                *******FOR EDITING ICON*******

1) Open and browse the apk file you want to edit.

 2) Wait for some time until the Browse link becomes clickable in Details Tab.

 3) Now, click on browse and folder structure will be opened.

 4) You can make small changes like string name change, image change, app name change & save the file to reflect the changes in apk file.

 To Change icon or images :- Replace existing images with new images.
To make name changes :- find strings.xml file in res and change the string’s values.
To make app name, package name changes :- Change the android manifest file.

After making all changes, save the file and close the folder structure.  Click On Ok and you will see the android app with all the changes you made.


You can use this trick to mask your secure applications on android. But do remember that the trick is only meant for personal use. Don’t try to change the name and icon of the app and publish it as your own work.

Introducing Google Nose. Try it now

The new scentsation in search

  • Coming to your senses: go beyond type, talk, and touch for a new notation of sensation.
  • Your internet sommelier: expertly curated Knowledge Graphs pair images, descriptions, and aromas.
  • Take a whiff: the Google Aromabase - 15M+ scentibytes.
  • Don't ask, don't smell: For when you're wary of your query - SafeSearch included. 

What’s that smell?

  • Google Nose BETA leverages new and existing technologies to offer the sharpest olfactory experience available:
  • Street Sense vehicles have inhaled and indexed millions of atmospheric miles.
  • Android Ambient Odor Detection collects smells via the world's most sensible mobile operating system.
  • SMELLCD™ 1.8+ high-resolution compatible for precise and controlled odors. 
ClicK hEre tO kNoW MoRe....

Google's done it again. Now, go beyond the glass touchscreen and experience scents from all around the world, right from your mobile or desktop device. The technology connecting scent with search has finally arrived at our homepages. Grandma’s freshly baked chocolate chip cookies can now be experienced with the click of a button. It’s called  Google Nose BETA and it’s the new scentsation for a reason.
“You can search for text across the Internet with images, books, and videos, but we realized there was an important part of the search experience we had overlooked,” shares Jon Wooley, Google product manager. If bloodhounds and tiger sharks can solely rely on their sense of smell to detect objects, why haven’t we made strides in this direction technologically?
Similar to searching for images, the Google Aromabase factory enables users to search for a variety of smells. However, have no fear. With over 15M scentibytes, the SafeSearch function automatically filters the rather rancid scents from your device so your coworkers and cube friends won’t be asking who cut the cheese.
How does it all work? Google Nose BETA current leverages new and existing technologies to offer everything from atmospheric scents to decadent food scents. Engineers disclosed that by “intersecting photons with infrasound waves,  Google Nose BETA temporary aligns molecules to emulate a particular scent.” Newer technologies such as SMELLCD™ and Street Sense ensures that their database is extensively packed with aromas stretching from coast to coast.
Such an innovative stride in search enables us to experience more of the world beyond static photo images. You’ve got the option to truly wake up and smell the coffee even when your Keurig machine is broken. Today, just take a second and smell the roses with Google Nose BETA.

*******One fragrant Google Experience*******

Koenigsegg One:1

Koenigsegg is creating six uniquely developed and designed production cars – the One:1 program.
This is one of the most exclusive production car program ever envisaged.
The hp to kg curb weight ratio is an astonishing 1:1. This is the  “dream” equation previously thought impossible. On top of this the One:1 is the first homologated production car in the world with one Megawatt of power, thereby making it the world´s first series produced Megacar.
These are the reason for naming the car One:1.

The 2014 One:1 truly raises the bar of performance. The One:1 features new and unique solutions to enhance track perfomance without compromising top speed or everyday usability, with a stunning visual appearance to go with it.
Examples of features; unique track optimized aero winglets, extended venturi tunnels and side splitters, Le-Mans inspired active wing configuration and optimized active undertrim air management. Large air vents for improved cooling, roof air scoop to support the 1 Megawatt of power. 8250 RPM rev limit, complimented with Custom made Michelin Cup Tires, upgrade rear triplex suspension with carbon bevel springs and active shockabsorbers and ride hight, combined with upgraded revolutionary Koenigsegg Aircore carbon fiber wheels.
Koenigsegg was the first extreme car manufacturer to take steps toward green technology with the release of the biofuel CCXR in 2007. The One:1, a sibling of the highly competitive Agera R, follows in the footsteps of the CCXR as it also runs on E85 biofuel, Racefuel or normal Petrol.
In order to give the One:1 maximum flexibility when it comes to power delivery, Koenigsegg has implemented its patented variable turbo geometry technology in the One:1 Program. This technology gives improved response and more low end torque than otherwise possible. As an example the One:1 engine has over 1000 Nm of torque between 3000 to 7500 rpm, which is truly unheard of.
