    When I perform an action that can be done with multiple apps, some of the apps offered show up with a filename and the default android green robot icon. Like com.ebay.mobile rather than showing the ebay app icon and name.

    It looks like all the apps affected are on the SD Card.

    This never happened on any other Android phone I had.

    And when I look at the apps in Settings > apps > All, I also only see the filename and default app icon for the ones on SD card.

    How can I fix that?

    The phone is a Motorola G gen 2
    Running Android 5.0.2

    Any ideas?

    Welcome to the forums. Have you tried rebooting the device?

    Hi there, yes, tried that, also tried moving the app to the phone storage and back again and it looks like this.

    Uninstall, reinstall with restarts in between had no effect, everything on the SD card loses its icon and custom name.

    It might be a limitation of the SD card.
