I'm looking to create a shortcut that links straight to the 'My Apps' screen of the Google Play Store? Either that or configure the Google Play Store to always open in the 'My Apps' screen. I've downloaded and installed AnyCut 1.0 but I'm unable to find the activity for opening Play on that screen.

AnyCut 1.0

You'll need an app like Tasker than can assign actions with activity launches. Create a New Task, name it, and Add an action. Go to SystemSend Intent. Then fill out these fields:

  • Action
  • Package
  • Class
  • Target
    • Select "Activity"

Assign an icon from the lower right. Leave Tasker. On your desktop, create a new shortcut, Task Shortcut, and select the task you named.

No it doesn't. I just did this running 4.2.2 – ElefantPhace Mar 25 '13 at 16:07
I couldn't get it to work with 4.0.3 – u01jmg3 Mar 25 '13 at 16:47
You must've done something wrong then – ElefantPhace Mar 25 '13 at 17:03
Apologies, I tried again and it worked - found a few more instructions here: Previously I kept getting the error message "package not installed". – u01jmg3 Mar 25 '13 at 17:35
Works in Android 5.0 Lollipop. – Andreas J. Nov 30 '14 at 22:57
