 Hi,

I am trying to get the Application Name (the one that accompanies the
icon in the launcher) for all packages installed in the device.  I
have the packageName and name from the ActivityInfo retrived view
queryIntentActivities(), but can't seem to locate the Application
Name.  Any pointers would be appreciated.

Thanks

Can you use PackageManager#getApplicationInfo()?

 Not sure is this what you want

Assuming you have your current Context object ctx

Resources appR = ctx.getResources();
CharSequence txt = appR.getText(appR.getIdentifier("app_name",
"string", ctx.getPackageName()));

2. Are the market stats broken for developers?

For a month and a half my application has had a number of downloads
versus number of active installs percentage of 77% and then over the
past two days it has gone down to 65%.  The most recent update my
downloads went up by ~250 and my active installs actually DECREASED by
200.  Seems like a plus sign was switched with a minus sign in the
update script or something.  Just doesn't seem right that over a
months time my percentage stays the same and then overnight it changes
so drastically.  Any insight on this?  Anyone else seeing the same
thing?
