Re: Deteting other applications on phone

I ain't looked into this one too much but it is definitely possible

 

The invoke framework allows you to launch other apps

 

What you're after is a list of invokable apps

 

Check out the invoke API - I'm sure there'll be a list available apps

 

Given the list you now now you have [whatever] so your app can include the relevant icons and respond accordingly

Re: Deteting other applications on phone

I've got an answer on the way

 

You need to prove to me that this is an enterprise app

 

I won't be giving this out - it's on-demand for a good reason

 

Company, directors etc

 

Sorry - this is SO easy to abuse

Re: Deteting other applications on phone

Depending on which applications you're looking for, you could use the blackberry.invoke.query API to look for invocable targets.

 

https://developer.blackberry.com/html5/apis/blackberry.invoke.html#.query

 

if they exist, they'll be returned as an array

Re: Deteting other applications on phone

@astanley, the invoke API mentioned is very nice.
but i am looking for a different requirement, for example in my application facebook link, on user clicking it, instead directing user to browser, one can launch installed facebook application. suggest me if u get any idea
