Change App Icons and Apk File Names in Android


If it is Android and you don’t mess with it, it simply means that you are not happy, we can easily say that whoever brought Android in this world was a genius, but those who took the whole thing to another level are even bigger geniuses. From customization in the root of your OS to the looks of your OS, is not something that you can find easily. Looks can still be managed but changing in the root of your OS is not something that every OEM support. While themes allows you to change the look-out of your Interface, there are fewer applications that lets you change the looks individually, I mean lets say you want to change the Icon of your Facebook application, but individually no app lets you do that.

Apk Editor allows you to do a lot of stuff like this, however, if you are not familiar with it, then pay more attention towards what we are doing. In this article we will show you how to Change App Icons and Apk File Names in Android, without further ado let us continue.
