Hi all, @taifun does this extension give you the class as well? If not, How can you pull this info from the installed app? Thanks. Keep up the great work you do.


#4

no, this information is provided from the Package Manager and used in the LaunchApp method directly
https://developer.android.com/reference/android/content/pm/PackageManager.html

After reading this stackoverflow answer and trying a few things I don’t think, it is possible to return this information…

That’s a bummer. Would that be the same as Activity Class, as what you need in activity starter?


#6

why don’t you just use the LaunchApp method from the package manager extension?
