    When I had exported the .apk file for the first time it worked perfectly but the .apk file doesn't have a game name.
    Then I updated the game and edit the app name and app id from android studio. After exported it shows a parsing error.
    What's wrong with my file?

    Hi, your APk could be damaged. I would recommend removing it from your phone, then re-export from Buildbox and try again. If this doesn't work, please create a support ticket by emailing Build Box Support at support@buildbox.com.

    What letters are you using for the name of the game?
    Use only letters from the Latin alphabet.

    This. Do not use non-ascii characters in general with game dev. Causes all sorts of problems ;)

    The exported .apk version of my game doesn't show the game name. So, I have edited the string.xml file in the android studio and edited app_name and app_id. The game name is "Balloid". But it shows a parsing error. I removed .apk file from my device and re-download it. But the same error show again...
    But it works perfectly when I don't edit app_name or app_id.

    What is the main problem? How to solve this?

    What do you have for the "name on device" in project settings in Buildbox? You shouldn't have to do any editing in xCode in that area if you have proper fields filled out in Project Settings

    Either way Android or iPhone fill it out in Project Settings in that field in Buildbox :)
