Android developers often desire a way to present a user with a method of selecting a file from "external" storage. Android's
Intent system gives developers the ability to implicitly hook into other app's components, but if the user doesn't have a file explorer installed, the developer must instruct them to install one, or build one, themselves.
aFileChooser is an Android Library Project that simplifies this process.
- Provides a built-in file explorer
- Streamlines the
Intent.ACTION_GET_CONTENTIntent calling process
- Easily convert a URI into s java
- Determine MIME data types
- Follows Android conventions (Fragments, Loaders) and is extremely simple to implement
