Android allows you to create app shortcuts, but you can also create special shortcuts that link directly to screens within an app. For example, shortcuts could link to the Navigation screen in Maps or any screen in the Settings app.
Awesome! How do I go to straight to the "Apps" or "Games" section in the Play Store?
This is perfect! I've always hated having to wade through menus and screens to use some single-purpose apps.
This kind of thing is exactly why Droid > iDevice.
