Description Mark Smith 2013-12-31 10:46:38 UTC
The Label on newly added activities is always "My Activity" vs. the name of the activity set in the item.  This should follow the same behavior as Xamarin Studio which uses the name of the activity without spaces as the label.

I have observed that now newly added Activities displaying 'MainActivity' without spacing when user create Android Project.
