How to rename an App in Curiosity

Why rename an App in Curiosity?

Each app you connect to Curiosity is listed in the left sidebar under Apps, Email, or similar. If you connect several accounts from the same app - e.g. several Gmail accounts - it can get confusing which is which.

The solution is to rename your App. That will change the label used for the App in Curiosity (but of course nowhere else, so no worries).

How to rename an App

To change the label you see for an App in Curiosity:
Connect your app by following these guides
Hover over the App's name in the left sidebar and click the three dots next to the name (More), then click Manage

Optionally, add an image you want used as the App's icon

💡 After re-labeling an App, you may need to quite and re-start Curiosity for the changes to appear.
