Implementing from other apps?

Postby phragg » Wed May 27, 2009 5:49 pm

Hey I just started looking into android development and I was wondering about how do you go about using apps from other Activities such as a camera and use the data that they capture? Maybe this not be a novice question but just a thought.

This is probably the most common and popular thing in Android. In order to use other activities/apps in Android you would use an "Intent".

Here is the official Google Intent info: http://developer.android.com/guide/topics/intents/intents-filters.html
