intent.action_send and intent chooser

 When creating an intent with action send to send some data, is there a
way to filter the results that are included in the activity chooser
that is created using Intent.createChooser? I have not seen a way to
do this other than setting the mime type, but it is not flexible

For example, there is a situation when I want e-mail apps to be the
only results in the activity chooser dialog. Setting the type to "text/
html" successfully filters this down to email apps, except when
bluetooth is enabled. Bluetooth appears in the list as well, but this
is not desirable. Surely there is a way to have a little more control
over the results?

What are "e-mail apps"?

Only on your test environment(s). Anyone can create an application
that supports ACTION_SEND of text/html -- this it not something
exclusive to "e-mail apps". I would not be the least bit surprised if
there are others on certain devices or out on the Market.

Write your own chooser dialog, using PackageManager.

 With e-mail apps, I just meant I was looking to filter the results to
e-mail clients, not necessarily anything that can handle "text/html",
which I realized wouldn't work when bluetooth popped up.

Thank you for the tip on creating my own dialog using PackageManager,
I will look into that.

ladies and gentlemen,

is it possible and ok to reconfigure eclipse ide to use the key store
for formal releasing app as the key store for debugging the app?

i am asking this because i find it very very tedious to switch between
signing my app using release and debug keys, and between change the
map keys in my app source code. what a ridiculous step to have to do
this for developing/releasing an android application!!!

please advise. thanks!
