not understand, sorry. When you tap on "Add link to App", you're able to choose from all applications you have installed, don't you?

Yes and no, from a shortcut e.g. to Dropbox app I can choose a certain folder or from a shortcut to Google Books I can choose a certain book. This is not possible if I just choose an app.

Shortcuts can extend beyond just opening an app. Many apps provide short cuts to enable direct functionality of the app. In my case I use Locus on my motorcycle and snowmobile. I'd like to add shortcuts to control music so I don't need to switch between apps. May plan is to use some tasker shortcuts to play/pause, skip, etc.

Thanks!

Menion, you as a developer should know this ;)

Install Go Launcher, long-press a free space on the screen and choose "Add Shortcut"... :D

Ah I never used these shortcuts so I completely forget it exists

In this case, I really suggest to put this idea on GetSatisfaction because it's really not task on five minutes
