We have discussed Android and its Activity system today. It is quite hard to grasp for an iOS guy like me; it feels…special.
I certainly know how to start an activity within my own app and I understand the difference of an explicit Intent vs an implicit one. But there are a couple of questions I couldn’t find answers to, particularly not something that would show how things work with Xamarin.Android.
So I created a small test app to answer the following questions:
- How can another app be launched directly?
- How can an Activity of another APK be started via an explicit Intent?
- How to implicitly start an Activity of another APK?
