Remote hybrid app shows with name "SalesforceMobileSDK Sample App" instead of actual name

I've created a remote hybrid app and have gotten it to work as expected.  The app has the correct name on the mobile device emulator, but in Salesforce it just shows up as "SalesforceMobileSDK Sample App" instead of the name I gave it.  How do I get Salesforce to recognize the app by its actual name and list its actual name in the connection and login history?

Hey Natalya,

This name comes from the related Connected App. To alter this you will need to create a new Connected App and then use this key in your project (I think it's the bootconfig.json).

Note that when creating Connected Apps you want to make sure you define this in an org that won't expire - so a long running dev org would be best. There are guides (https://help.salesforce.com/articleView?id=connected_app_create.htm&type=5) for this.
