I can't find any help searchin on google or the dev's site to use custom activities. I am curious as heck to use this feature to create more detailed NFC tags, but I am hoping someone can inform on how to determine the activities within third party apps so that I could use this feature.
It's really not that exciting currently
Essentially that's used to start a specific activity within a package. Some packages have multiple activities that can be launched (and are present in the app drawer). If you pick one of these from the list that box will auto populate. You could also manually set if it you want (com.pagkage.name.Activity).
Going forward I'm kicking around allowing the creation of a custom intent to pass extra data into apps (much more useful) but that's a bit off right now. Plenty of features to get through currently before I run in to that (done for the next release is lock screen controls, dock modes - including hardware dock impersonation, sms, phone calls, allowing NFC to be excluded from all airplane mode toggles, layout optimizations and fixes of reported issues)
Long term we do want to get some "how to" articles / videos up. At this point though they don't exist really. If you have any specific questions feel free to email or send me a message here.
