The name member is a string that represents the name of the web application as it is usually displayed to the user (e.g., amongst a list of other applications, or as a label for an icon). name is directionality-capable, which means it can be displayed left-to-right or right-to-left based on the values of the dir and lang manifest members.

Examples

Simple name in left-to-right language:

"name": "Awesome application"

Right-to-left name in Arabic:

"dir": "rtl",
"lang": "ar",
"name": "!أنا من التطبيق"
