Change App Display Name in React Native

Android

In android/app/src/main/res/values/strings.xml change the value for app_name (replace PrevAppName):

<string name="app_name">PrevAppName</string>

iOS

In ios/<PrevAppName>/Info.plist change the value for CFBundleDisplayName (replace PrevAppName):

<key>CFBundleDisplayName</key>
<string>PrevAppName</string>

Note: If you're using the iOS launch screen that's included with React Native apps by default, it may be desireable to keep the launch screen in sync also. In ios/APP_NAME/Base.lproj/LaunchScreen.xib search and replace any instances of PrevAppName.
