You're quite right, Roman and Christopher, I hadn't thought of those. Still, these examples could have very well been separate functionally-different apps (or have been in the past). In my example, the dashboard would be just that, it can't be an app on itself. Imagine a launcher leading to the Contacts, and another to the "New Contact" edit activity. Would a user appreciate having such a "New contact" launcher with the same rolodex icon, possibly overlaid with a "+" or something? The programmatic way is very interesting.

The camera and camcorder is indeed a good example. How about my other example where both are not homogeneous access routes (i.e. not equivalent; the Dashboard - ListActivity example)? The first launcher would have as label "Collection Manager", for instance, whereas the second would have "Collections in Collection Manager". Also, what are your ideas on different icons, different labels (under the constraint that the launcher only displays the first 10 characters or so), and the user not getting lost?
