How can I launch an app from another app

I need to know how I can run a Facebook app from my app. I have a button on my app that is suppose to launch Facebook app. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Re: How can I launch an app from another app

At this time, there is nothing in the SDK that allows an application to launch another application.  I suspect that it will based on mime types as long as an application can register itself to which mime types it supports and the user can set a preferred application for each of the mime types.

 

Since there is nothing standard about a "facebook" application, mime types can be used for extended application types as long as BB/PB has a way to centrally define/register things like this so all applications can take advantage of the mechanism.

 

But since none of this is in place yet, you may need to hold on or find a work around.
