There are plenty of apps in the Play Store, however, that let you create shortcuts to specific "Activities," or functions, within other apps. QuickShortcutMaker is one such tool. Install it, then long-press on the home screen to open up the "Widgets" creator. Tap and hold the "QuickShortcutMaker" option that appears in the list, and you'll be able to add a shortcut to specific locations within certain apps. For example, you could create shortcuts that pop you directly into Netflix's search interface, open your Amazon wish list, or instantly create a new item on your to-do list.
