 Yes :) Just put two activities in your manifest, both with the
LAUNCHER category.

2. Application Crash Reporting made easy - needs testers


I would like to introduce you to a library called ACRA (Application
Crash Reporting for Android).

The goal of this library is to provide android applications developers
with a tool to let their applications send them crash reports the
easiest possible way.

One of the main issue when implementing crash reporting tools is...
where do I send my reports ? ACRA solves this problem with a simple
solution : reports are sent to a Google Docs Form ! So you don't need
to code your own reports receiver scripts and you don't have to find
dedicated hosting for that... let's use Google's servers ! :)

A first version of ACRA has been successfully used in a few apps
already on the market, and we are now preparing to publish a v2 which
allows developers to replace the annoying "force close" dialog with
fully configurable notification systems :
* Silent : the user experience is not altered compared to standard
android apps. The force close dialog is displayed, but ACRA tries to
send a report. If it fails, reports will be sent on application
restart in a separate Thread.
* Toast notification to inform the user that a crash report has been
sent (and you may add that it can be disabled in the preferences
* Status bar notification which leads to a dialog asking the user if
he's ok to send a report. You can even add an input field to let him
comment the issue.

We are now looking for devs who would like to test the library and
it's different notification modes. All the information, screenshots
and step-by-step usage guide are available in that Wiki page :

Devs who would like to use the v1 and it's basic (but working)
functionnality can follow this link :

Any comment/discussion is open about ACRA, we really want your opinion
about it.
