The Phone activity is used to display the phone dialer (if available) filled in with a specific telephone number. This allows users to contact you with a single click.
To add a Phone activity to your project: start editing your project and go to the Activities tab. Under 'Your App Activities' click the + Add an Activity button and select Phone from the list.
Now let's take a look at the Phone Activity settings.
The name that you want to give your activity. This will appear on the dashboard and navigation drawer. It can be whatever you want but should probably describe what it is used for. For our example "Call Us".
