Mobile OutSystems Apps to Support Android Intents

By Kenny Fong on 16 Mar

I am thinking of how retrieve information from a Malaysian Identity Card reader and transferring the information such as name, address, etc. to an OutSystems Android app.

The cardreader is this http://www.causalidea.com/home/ci-showkad

The sample application on Google Playstore indicates that it broadcasts an Android Intent.

How can an OutSystems app get this information?

More on how this card reader works.
