Launch Intent for Service Simulator

It's nice to see you making the effort to catch up with EchoSim. To that end, I would just that if a user enters a blank string into the Service Simulator that you send a "Launch Request" to the app. Currently there isn't a way to send that without hand editing the JSON.

If you entered the launch phrase, "open ", or similar, the LaunchRequest is returned as expected.

Well spotted! I can confirm that works for me too. So I guess my request is for a text update on the page to let people know this.
