Wiktionary Android app has a wrong name and icon
Closed, DeclinedPublic

Description

The Wiktionary app (available via Google Play Store, v1.0.1) has incorrect name and icon.

Currently:

  • the name of the app is the name of the Wikipedia project in the language of the user (e.g. "Wikipédia" in French).
  • the icon of the app is not the Wiktionary logo, but a generic human reading a book with the Wikimedia foundation colors (green, red, blue);

Expected:

  • the displayed name should be the name of the Wiktionary project in the language of the user (e.g. "Wiktionnaire" in French), or at the very least the name of the project, "Wiktionary".
  • the app should use the icon of Wiktionary, either the full logo (9 tiles) or the thumbnail (1 tile);

I found the Github repository for this project, but I'm not sure if it is up to date (e.g. compared with the Wikipedia app), or who is in charge of it.
