We had some ideas on how to improve this during the last design meeting
(quite some time ago), but unfortunately nobody got around to doing any
detailed mock-up yet. Help with this would be very welcome.

Basically we considered doing an intermediate full-screen chooser after
clicking on an activity icon. It would offer both Start New and a
gallery of existing entries, similar to the (still not merged) grid
view in the Journal. Android or iPad (don't remember which) seems to
be doing something similar.
