Twitter for Android App In some cases Android apps are installed with wrong icons or and wrong name. Example official Twitter App for Android or Quizduell > 4.4.9 (1449). On the attached screenshot is version 4.4.9 (1449) installed. Icon and name is correct, if i update to 4.7.2 (1471) it is renamed to Quizclash and have an arabic? icon. Twitter have no icon and the name 'Android'. May be problems with the localisation?


  • Can anybody confirm this behavior on other devices / languages?

I guess not, but it seams to be more complex than just not apearing on grid

I have got a simular issue with a different android app. I just managed to change the name of the app from "android" to the correct one by editing the desktop file in /usr/share/applications. It seems like there is no app icon on the location that the desktop file is referring to. I have to look if I can extract it somehow from the apk.
