Recently I’ve been seeing many apps where the name of the app that appears under the app icon is truncated. Before I even launch the app, I know that the developer doesn’t care about the appearance of their app. Sad.

The solution is trivial.

The 5 second alternative is to edit the project’s Info.plist file. Change the value of Bundle Display Name from ${PRODUCT_NAME} to the name of your app.

The 60 second option is to create an InfoPlist.strings file in each of your language directories (e.g. en.lproj). Add this line to the file: ”CFBundleDisplayName” = “YourNewAppName”;

The benefit of the latter approach is that you can specify localized names for your app. You are translating your apps to other languages than English, right?
