Android: Homescreen shortcut to certain action within an app

view story

http://stackoverflow.com – In an android app I am making, I want to allow users to place shortcuts on their homescreen that will make my app perform certain actions. So far, I made it successfully create the shortcut (they are created through the launcher, not through the app directly). However, when I click on them, it says Application isn't installed on your phone Which I assume means I have created the shortcut wrong. The code I am using to create the shortcut is: Intent shortcutIntent = new Intent(ShortcutActivity.this, com.example.myapp.MyActivity.class); ShortcutIconResource iconResource = Intent.ShortcutI (HowTos)
