    creating an app to launch another app

    Is there a way to create an app that will open another app (one downloaded from the market) and fill some default information? I'm a novice and am just learning Java, Eclipse, and Android all at once.

    Thanks.

    Sounds like you're looking for a macro. Something that will emulate a user's action. ie; open this, do that, etc. You can place shortcuts on your desktop so those will open an app. Unless the app had an api to allow other things to interface with it I think you'd be stuck doing some sort of screenscrape type thing.
