This component has the ability to open a mobile device's file, either by letting the user chose an app to do the job, or by open with the default app.

The device will offer apps based on the MIME given as a parameter to this component (to know more about MIMEs go here). You may get a file's MIME at the upload moment, on the web interface its very simple, since the upload component gives this information to you, on the mobile on the otherhand the component will not give you this information, so on this component's Demo I provided a way of doind so, just copy to your project and enjoy!

To open files you may need to save they on the device beforehand, this can be acomplished by using others plugins (e.g. File Plugin). One of the options when calling the open action, is named 'DecodeFilePath', you'll need when your URI (Path to the file) is encoded (e.g. file://MyPath/This%20Path%20Has%20Some%20Spaces/MyFile%20Has%20To.png)!
