You are right! Intent is used to launch applications. Note: you should know the ID of the application you wish to open.

Intent appIntent= getPackageManager().getLaunchIntentForPackage("<YOUR_PAKCAGE_NAME | APPLICATION ID>"); // Application id looks like this - com.example.yourapplication
// Check if the app exists with provided ID by checking for null
if (appIntent != null) {
    startActivity(appIntent);
}

Hope this helps!

Hi I want to record my screen and save as video file in Android. Note: I don't need the code to work in old versions (I need for Jelly bean and later versions) of android.

Thanks in advance!
