Are Activities and Intent the only way one can create new UX?
I'm new to Android, hence the noob question.
On most other UI platforms you simply create the new view, set a couple of properties, and show the view.
For android, Activities and Intents abstract this away to the point of lowering fidelity between different UI components. I can understand the value of Activities for cross process IPC, but for within process, it's a terrible.
I assume I am missing something, this Activity and Intent pattern makes about as much sense is Microsoft's WPF -- another retarded programming paradigm.
Please set me straight, tell me I'm wrong and there's an easier way.
