Is there a way to open a local file (pdf, doc, odt, etc) with default viewer in IOS ?
Something like ShellExecute in Vb..

In B4a I used this routine:

Dim intent1 As Intent
intent1.Initialize(intent1.ACTION_VIEW, "file://" & fileName)
intent1.SetType("application/pdf") ' or application/msword, ...
intent1.WrapAsIntentChooser("Selezionare il visualizzatore file " & estensione)
StartActivity(intent1)
Thanks

This part is the core of my app.. Without that my users cannot view files downloaded from web service..
When do you think will be available ?

Have you any news ?
Or is possible to use Objective C inline to do the same functionality ? Do you have any example to use the required api for open files ?
I have searched in the forum but found nothing...
Thanks
