    We are using the same project code with different configurations to create 3 apps. Basically AppBuilder project is the same, then we just change seeome css styles, images and some API connections and build it as 3 separate apps. For Android we have an issue. When we manually install 1 app, other apps cannot be installed. I get "Application not installed error on android". Once it is uninstalled, installation of another app succededs. I guess ID needs to changes somewhere. iOS works fine as I build it using 3 separate provision profiles. I changed app name for each app in manifest file (see attached) and also create a unique id in properties->general.PLease help

    I've already answered your inquiry in the support ticket you've opened on the same matter. After looking at your projects, the problem seem to be comming from jshybugger which requires unique authority name for each app. Modify the provider tag inside AndroidManifest.xml as follows and reinstall the app:

    Copy Code
    <provider android:name="org.jshybugger.DebugContentProvider"
        <!-- choose unique authority name for multiple apps on one device -->
        android:authorities="" ...

    Icenium is now Telerik AppBuilder, and is part of the Telerik Platform. For more information on the new name, and to learn more about the Platform, register for the free online keynote and webinar on Wednesday, February 12, 2014 at 11:00 a.m. ET (8:00 a.m. PT)
