I want to start another activity so the user can pick a file to use in my app. (Specifically an audio file in this case.) I googled and found this:
Basically it creates an
ACTION_GET_CONTENT and mime type "file/*". Questions:
- Where is it documented, in the standard Android docs, that this will start a file chooser?
- Can I depend on it? That is, is it part of Android or does it only work if the user has a certain file manager app installed.
- Is this the best way to choose a file? I specifically want an audio file (mp3, etc) - one of the audio files on the SD card that the standard music player knows about, somehow. Should I look at ContentProviders?
