General query about intents

Postby felixwatts » Thu Jun 24, 2010 12:41 pm

Hi,

It must be common that you want your app to respond to some kind of event in another app, but how do you go about finding out what intent is raised by that event? Its catch 22 because unless you know what intent filter to add you don't get the intent so you can't inspect it. What is the best approach to finding out what intent filter you need in order to respond to a particular event in another app?

Thanks
felix

As such there is nothing we can do about it. www.openintents.org might be a good place to start with. Apparently google are planning to come up with an intent repository so that developers can use other people's apps
