In this course, I'll teach you everything you need to know to use Intents in your Kotlin Android app. If you want to become an Android coder, you're going to need to understand Intents. So let's get started!

1.1 Introduction

Hello there. Welcome to the Android fundamentals course on intents. I'm Annapurna Agrawal, and I'll take you through the basics of intents and how to implement it to help order different components of Android to work together. We will use Kotlin for learning intents in Android. Intent is one of the fundamental building blocks of Android. And it is important to learn how it works. Using intent, we can generate the coordination between different Android components. In this course, you will learn what is intent and how it works. You'll also see how to share data back and forth activities, that is from one activity to other and vice versa, using intents. You'll see what are the types of intents and how to deal with them. You'll learn what are actions, how you can perform various actions, and categorize your activities based on that. You see how to make your application ready to work with other apps in your Android device. You'll see how to generate a request from your application, as well as how to handle a request coming from an app component outside your application. So this way, you will see how to make your app interactive both ways. From in to out and out to in. You'll learn how to define a custom action if you want to deal with a particular type of request. And then, last but not the least, cherry on the cake, I'll show you how to use ADB shell to perform testings for intent. Believe me, it makes the testing work ten times easier. I'm sure you're gonna like it. I hope you join us in this journey of Android fundamentals on intent. So see you there.
