Hello, Im making my application, and i have problem, hope some one is gonna help me.

Let me describe problem:

I have 2 activities:

- first for main menu, containing one TextView and one Button
- second containing only one TextView

And whats my problem? In my second activity i can not receive value from textview from first activity (always error, stopped unexpected ...)

Never works, i have been trying with singleton holder and getInstance() aswell, but always the same.

Thanks in advance for any help.

If you're sending something simple, like Strings or numbers, you can pass these as "extras" to the new Activity when you launch it.
