Is there any way to invoke an application _other than_ the built-in applications? For example, I have an epub reader installed. Can I invoke this from my own application? Is there some way to get a list of installed applications?
I am porting a desktop-style file manager application, and the apparent inability to get any control over which application is launched in response to a specific file type is a bit of a hurdle.
Solved! Go to Solution.

Answering my own question to some extent -- this Invocation Framework seems to be related to Blackberry 10. Is there anything similar available for current production tablets?

It's good not to have to waste a lot more time looking for something that doesn't exist. However, the lack of such a basic facility does seem to represent a significant deficiency in the platform :/
