int android.content.Intent.FLAG_ACTIVITY_NEW_TASK = 268435456 [0x10000000]
public static final int FLAG_ACTIVITY_NEW_TASK
Since: API Level 1
If set, this activity will become the start of a new task on this history stack. A task (from the activity that started it to the next task activity) defines an atomic group of activities that the user can move to. Tasks can be moved to the foreground and background; all of the activities inside of a particular task always remain in the same order. See Tasks and Back Stack for more information about tasks.
This flag is generally used by activities that want to present a "launcher" style behavior: they give the user a list of separate things that can be done, which otherwise run completely independently of the activity launching them.
When using this flag, if a task is already running for the activity you are now starting, then a new activity will not be started; instead, the current task will simply be brought to the front of the screen with the state it was last in. See FLAG_ACTIVITY_MULTIPLE_TASK for a flag to disable this behavior.
This flag can not be used when the caller is requesting a result from the activity being launched.
Constant Value: 268435456 (0x10000000)
// Pressing on the button brings the user back to our mood ring,
// as part of the api demos app. Note the use of NEW_TASK here,
// since the notification display activity is run as a separate task.
