How do I star an activity and have it show up in a favourites menu?

http://stackoverflow.com – Hello I would like to have a star icon displayed in the menu bar of multiple activities when the star is selected it then adds a link to that activity into a favourites menu. I would like my content to be displayed the way it is in the photos even just a name is fine also the link needs to be swipe-able to remove from the list. As of now I haven't figured out how to create an updating favourites menu or how to add the star icon to the menu bar or link either together. Thanks in advance! (HowTos)
