loading an external roku app from my current app ?

Hi,

Can we load an external roku app/channel being in a current application ?

Basically say if i am having a list of photos showing on my current roku app and i have an extended slide saying "More on Flickr", and if user selects that slide and presses "OK" , I want to start roku's flickr app ?

How to do this ? Is it possible ?

Yes, see External Control Guide.
You'll have to invoke the "launch" service by doing http POST to the player's IP at port 8060, see the examples.
