Hi,

I am trying to use the Android Intents to launch the create Note action.

At the moment I need to support two features:
  • Plain text note creation
  • Accept a prebuilt enex file that will be passed via the intent.
However, I can't find the relevant documentation to explain what I need to do.

I have tried the following :

		 Intent sendIntent = new Intent("com.evernote.action.CREATE_NEW_NOTE");
		 sendIntent.putExtra(Intent.EXTRA_TITLE, "Web Clip");
		 sendIntent.putExtra(Intent.EXTRA_TEXT, fullContents);
		 sendIntent.setType("text/plain");
		 startActivity(sendIntent);

But the UI is not launched.

I have included the Evernote libs in my project (not sure I actually need to do this though?
The documentation I have been looking at is at this link:
http://dev.evernote....rs/android.php

What am I missing? I do not want to use the cloud API, and supporting the intents is all I need to do.

UPDATE
I have managed to get the above to work. I still need to be able to get the enex file working. I'm currently getting a NullPointerException from the Evernote fragment:

02-03 21:07:33.387: ERROR/NewNoteFragment(9601): java.lang.NullPointerException
	    java.lang.NullPointerException
	    at android.content.ContentResolver.openInputStream(ContentResolver.java:433)
	    at com.evernote.ui.NewNoteFragment.a(NewNoteFragment.java:2193)
	    at com.evernote.ui.QuickSaveFragment.e(QuickSaveFragment.java:97)
	    at com.evernote.ui.pp.run(QuickSaveFragment.java:83)
	    at java.lang.Thread.run(Thread.java:856)

Using something like the following:

File myFile = new File("/sdcard/mysdfile.txt");
FileOutputStream fOut = new FileOutputStream(myFile);
OutputStreamWriter osw = new OutputStreamWriter(fOut);
osw.write(EnexOutput.convertToString(note));

osw.flush();
osw.close();

Intent evernote = new Intent();
evernote.setAction(Intent.ACTION_SEND);
  evernote.setData(Uri.parse("file:///sdcard/mysdfile.txt"));
  evernote.setType("application/enex");
  startActivity(evernote);
