Android Intents local API

Recommended Posts


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

At the moment I need to support two features:

  1. Plain text note creation
  2. 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);

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:


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


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
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);


Intent evernote = new Intent();
