 It looks like these guys at MobSpot are thinking along the same lines as me
for ZappMarket, using facebook to discover and promote applications. 

MobSpot is only for iPhone apps (for now). If you guys want to get in on
this for Android head over to MobSpot 
has 35 apps, ZappMarket has 12. Do you still want to let all the iPhone guys
beat us poor Android developers?

1. How do i do a startActivity() in BroadcastReceiver ?

Hi all
 My use case is to launch one of settings app screen when I receive a
certain event in idle state.
For which, I added my new intent to PhoneAppBroadcastReceiver() in (looks like this receiver handles the misc intents)
But when i call startActivity(), The phone seems to go into a panic

ex. startActivity(new Intent(this, NetworkSetting.class));
My questions are

is this the right approach to go about ?
If so
1. How can I launch the activity inside of broadcastReceiver?

2. How do i verify if the activity i want to start is already started?

Can the  NEW_TASK_LAUNCH be used to verify this ,

Could some one point me to some sample code if any exists ?

2. can't change Exif tag using ExifInterface

The normal way to change a Exif tag is like:
ExifInterface.getAttributes -> modify some attribute -> saveAttributes
-> commitChanges.

The problem exists in saveAttributes  which will call jhead API
DiscardData() in the end and the static variable HaveAll is set to 0,
then commitChange will fail.

It seems DiscardData should be removed from saveAttributes  and placed
to commitChanges.
