Hint #1 - How To Change World Name Without Deleting It!

Firstly you must have:
- An explorer (Recommended)
- Or a Computer could do the work but it so long.
First go to the directory where your game is. (on Android it is: sdcard>android>games>com.mojang>worlds>heretheyare!)
Now right click or long press the World and rename it accordingly to your choice.
Hope this helps!

Ha! It says "How to rename mcpe world". If fact, it says how to rename the FOLDER of the world. Sorry, this "cheat" will not work. It will stay as [insert_name_here] forever! You will need PocketinvEditor to do this

PS: PocketiveEditor is free in Google Play. If you want the PRO one, find it on Google.

Awesome wake-up Like duah, we do in our PC's everyday, change the name of file to fit a name you like.

No you don't have to do that. If you have an android then download PocketInvEditor from Google play store. After that, click on the world you want to change then click on world options. The first type bar is the 'change name' bar. Type your new world name in there. Hope this helps :-)

I am afraid this hint does not work. The screen where you select your world shows four lines. The name of the world is in the first and the third line (and the first line is bold).
Renaming the folder only changes the third line but the bold one is still the old one.
(At least on my Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 with Android 4.1)
