I have been wrestling with custom app labels and have come to the conclusion that this is the easiest workaround for the problem. Since I name most of my apps as Foo_Bar this makes them look a lot nicer. I just apply the filter to whatever app label and it fixes it.

If you need a more complex replacement, you could just have an if statement that looks for the full app label and replaces it with whatever you want.

@register.filter
def niceLabel(label, arg=None):
    label = label.replace("_", " ")
    label = label.title()
    
    return label
