State Your Intentions
That “Hello, World” Android application isn’t very interesting until
it can look up a contact, take a picture, and put it on a map. The
platform provides all this and more, but the details are buried in a
mountain of Javadocs. All these tools are yours to command once you
know Android’s message-passing language: Intents. In this session,
we’ll explore what we can display, store, choose, launch, or dial.
Code examples reveal the secret language of action, data, category,
and trigger. Tell Android exactly what you want, and it will do some
great work for you.
