[android-developers] Re: Can I start a new activity that’s not specified in the AndroidManifst.xml file?

Well, yes, that is the obvious response. For by design, every Activity
must be declared in the manifest. That is WHY it is named 'manifest':
it is like the manifest that a shipper fills out, listing all the
goods in the shipment.

But I am curious what programming problem Snap believed was best
solved by making the dynamic code an Activity. I don't believe such a
step really is necessary, Snap's choice of this step is probably based
on a misunderstanding of the nature of an Android Activity; but until
Snap tells us more about the programming problem, I can't be sure.
