Question Change APP name from external text(xml) file


I have one similar question.

I have an APP which I'll use for more than one customer.
For every customer this app will be with different name.
To change the name I must have a compiler(like Eclipse), open project, open strings.xml, change the app_name, save it and export again the .apk file.

I don't want to do this every time. I just want to do this from external config file which go together with the .apk file.
In this case I don't need to export the app again from compiler. Just start the app, reads that file, see name changed and install the app with the new name.

Is this possible?

P.S. I'm coming from another environment in which this is possible and very comfortably.

Moved to Android Development.

Apple tells people what they want, Microsoft asks what people want, Google gives people what they want (for 15 minutes).

Site Rules, for your convenience

Unfortunately, the app name needs to be known at compile time.
