    If you are building a professional Android application with Delphi XE5 Firemonkey one thing you will want to do is create a shortcut on the Android homescreen so users can find your app after the first launch. Here is some sample code that allows you to do that using some calls to the Android SDK API. If you want to see the Java code for Android which does the same thing you can check out this and this. Keep in mind that in order for this code to work you will need to have the INSTALL_SHORTCUT permission set.

    Code:
    <uses-permission android:name=”com.android.launcher.permission.INSTALL_SHORTCUT”/>

    Here is the sample code but keep in mind you will need to customize the StringToJString(‘com.embarcadero.HeaderFooterApplication’) section to match the ID of your own application.

    Code:
    Uses
    Androidapi.JNI.GraphicsContentViewText, FMX.Helpers.Android,
    Androidapi.JNI.JavaTypes, FMX.Platform.Android, AndroidApi.JniBridge, AndroidApi.Jni.App,
    AndroidAPI.jni.OS;
    
    {$IFDEF ANDROID}
    var
    ShortcutIntent: JIntent;
    addIntent: JIntent;
    wIconIdentifier : integer;
    wIconResource : JIntent_ShortcutIconResource;
    {$ENDIF}
    begin
    {$IFDEF ANDROID}
    
    ShortcutIntent := TJIntent.JavaClass.init(SharedActivityContext, SharedActivityContext.getClass);
    ShortcutIntent.setAction(TJIntent.JavaClass.ACTION_MAIN);
    
    addIntent := TJIntent.Create;
    addIntent.putExtra(TJIntent.JavaClass.EXTRA_SHORTCUT_INTENT, TJParcelable.Wrap((shortcutIntent as ILocalObject).GetObjectID));// here we need to cast the intent as it’s not done in delphi by default, not like java
    addIntent.putExtra(TJIntent.JavaClass.EXTRA_SHORTCUT_NAME, StringToJString(Application.Title));
    addIntent.setAction(StringToJString(‘com.android.launcher.action.INSTALL_SHORTCUT’));
    // get icon resource identifier
    wIconIdentifier := SharedActivity.getResources.getIdentifier(StringToJString(‘ic_launcher’), StringToJString(‘drawable’), StringToJString(‘com.embarcadero.HeaderFooterApplication’)); // if the app name change, you must change the package name
    wIconResource := TJIntent_ShortcutIconResource.JavaClass.fromContext(SharedActivityContext, wIconIdentifier);
    // set icon for shortcut
    addIntent.putExtra(TJIntent.JavaClass.EXTRA_SHORTCUT_ICON_RESOURCE, TJParcelable.Wrap((wIconResource as ILocalObject).GetObjectID));
    
    SharedActivityContext.sendBroadcast(addIntent);
    
    {$ENDIF}

    When you application is uninstalled I believe it will remove the shortcuts from the homescreen that point to it so you don’t have to worry about cleaning them out. However, there is also an UNINSTALL_SHORTCUT permission and you can remove shortcuts that your app has created as well.
