I believe only the package name have a significance.

You can just change the name of your app (eg. /res/strings.xml/
appname), and resubmit it.

Beside in the market you have a field for the AppName, which I believe
is the name used when browsing the market.

Anyway, the submit process won't let you mess with it, you can try and
upload your new app with a new name and the same package name on top
of your old one. If it is not allowed the market will tell you and
refuse your new version.

You can also try with a dummy app you make just for testing purpose.
You simply won't publish it and remove it afterwards.

I say that from the top of my head, so please come back afterward and
tell us how you did.

Good luck.

Someone know this workaround? Or someone know how can I do to set a

market, and I think that there is a solution otherwise this kind of
widget would not exist because they need a refresh rate of at least 1
