Ability to open Email attachments directly in ported App?

[ Edited ]

Is there any possibility to choose in the native Email client for the attachment to be opened directly with a ported App? From what I understand the file would have to be saved and could then be opened through the App itself which is very cumbersome. I hope there is a solution to this as there even is in the iOS world ...

For ported Android applicaitons this would not be currently possible. The user would have to open the file through the application directly.

 

This is a feature we are looking at support in the future.

So if it was a native app it would be supported?
