 > A few more comments:
 > - we need an icon for the activity (currently: if you have not run the
 activity once inside Sugar, the icon in the favorite view is all gray)

 Yes, apologies, I'm slow getting to this!

 > - in the activity the forward/back buttons are part of the toolbar, I
 think it would be clearer to put them at the same place as in the welcome

 Personally I'm quite happy as they are, the Activity is a standard
 Activity, the first boot is something different, no need to make the two
 identical so I favour the standard use of the Activity and toolbar over
 some custom widgets on the canvas.

 > - the activity does save a state, should it? or should we treat it like
 the get-books activity? I mean the only thing I see that could be of
 interest is gathering metadata like 'how often a learner did bring up the
 welcome activity' (that said, I am actually not a big fan of stateless
 activities because there should be always some information/metadata to be

 Yes, please save state always, get-books is broken in my opinion and need
 fixing! It should at least be saving state for your last search and the
 books you downloaded. Remember also that the home favorites view resumes
 the last Journal entry, get-books looks like it has never been used and
 will start multiple instances if clicked on more than once.
