[android-developers] Share Page

What I want to do is basically have an application run in the
background. So what the user would basically do is open the
application and then switch to a browser. After the User has opened up
the browser he would go on to clicking menu - more - share page and
would find the application name on the "To:" textfield. They would
then press send and then the application would redeem focus again and
the application would now have the url and it would proceed to do
whatever is needed.

My Question is how do I add a listener to the application and how do i
add the application name so you are able to see it into the "To:" so
when you press send the application would recieve the url and would
would do whatever the application needs. Can you guys please help me
out with this? I have looked at sever ways to go about doing this, the
most common "Intent Filter" but i am not able to see the name of the
application on the "To:".

Thanks in advance for the help.
