Override / extend native device screens

Hi people!


Is it possible to extend a native device screen? For example, the messaging, logs and calling screens.

From what I saw, it is not possible to do it, but, who knows, maybe someone has a clue on this.

Another way of doing it would be to override these screens, but how would one replace a native screen with a custom one?


If it possible to extend / override any native screen, how would you do it?


Best regards,

Re: Override / extend native device screens

no, it is not possible. you can re-implement them of course, but you can not replace them.
