Port activities system. Activities gather different content like applications, documents, web pages, contacts etc. that belong together. This way, they allow to quickly access the resources related to the task at hand. For example, when in Work activity, you'd get only a list of your work contacts, and related documents. Also, they allow to encrypt the data that belong to specific activities.
