Invalid app name (illegal character)

Hi all,

My latest app has a colon punctuation character ":" in the name.  This is the name I'd like to display under the icon on iOS.

However, when testing on the device i get 'Package inspectuion failed' if the applicaton.xml <name> contains the colon character.

Can anyone verify that the colon is not allowed in the app display name - or if it is, do I need to encode it (e.g. URL encode) in the name?

Cheers,

Peter

SOLVED: Both the <name> and the <initialWindow> <title> can contain the colon character, without escaping.

The 'Package inspection failed' was due to another (random) reason and was solved by restarting the device.
