Using intents even allows your app to start an activity that is contained in a separate app.

An Intent can be explicit in order to start a specific component (a specific Activity instance) or implicit in order to start any component that can handle the intended action (such as "capture a photo").

There are some lessons on this here: http://developer.android.com/training/basics/intents/index.html
