Overall application settings are configured with the <application> tag of the Android manifest file. Here you set information such as the application icon (android:icon) and friendly name (android:label).These settings are attributes of the <application> tag.

For example, here we set the application icon to a drawable resource provided with the application package and the application label to a string resource:

<application android:icon="@drawable/icon" android:label="@string/app_name">

You can also set optional application settings as attributes in the <application> tag, such as the application description (android:description) and the setting to enable the application for debugging on the device (android:debuggable="true").
