Napa, an Office 365 Development Tools gives you with a page to manage your projects. And you can use this page to create a mail app, content app, task pane app, or SharePoint app project as well as rename and delete projects.  You can also open any project in Visual Studio if you decide that you want to leverage features such as advanced debugging or the ability to use a web project as part of your app for Office or SharePoint.
