Support for android intents in app player on playbook

[ Edited ]



I have recently deployed an android application to the PB. It uses multiple ACTION_VIEW intents and currently they stay within the android app player environment.


For example when I launch an email intent I get the option to pick native email.


Can anyone comment on if support for other intents is being added?


Also I know the camera intent is not currently working. Do we know if support will be added later?

Re: Support for android intents in app player on playbook

Hello benot,


The following link will outline which intents are not supported for the current release of the BlackBerry Runtime for Android apps, within the BlackBerry PlayBook OS 2.0 developer beta.


Unsupported Features and APIs



With respect to future aspects being supported, we are certainly open to hearing your concerns and requests.
