Open email attachment with my app


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,


I would like to open email attachments with my app. I added that to my manifest file:

	    <action android:name="android.intent.action.VIEW" />
	    <category android:name="android.intent.category.DEFAULT" />
		    android:pathPattern=".*.pdf" />


but when I click the attachment to open it from the email app I got permission denial error while starting intent. I tried also add to the manifest that:

<uses-permission android:name="com.android.email.permission.READ_ATTACHMENT"/>
<uses-permission android:name="com.android.email.permission.ACCESS_PROVIDER"/>


but it didn't help either. I tested on the android 2.3.3 and 4.1.2. Is there something I forgot?
