Broadcast Receiver and Activities

I have following code in BroadCastREceiver to start an Activity

This works fine and my activity does start, but it starts on top of my main activity (which is some other activity, for example B). What I want is that from my broadcast receiver I should be able start an Activity A, such that when I press back button from there, the control should not go to B Activity.

Please let me know what I am missing.

I guess that Activity B is the activity of your application only and not of other app.

How about using onBackPressed method in your activity A ???
I agree. Here's the link:
