Sometimes I tend to compare intents with events handlers.. I can hardly see the difference.

Intents is an Android mechanism that allows an app to interact with other applications. It is a very flexible system.

B4A is an event driven language. Your code is always executed through events. In some cases the events are related to received intents. However in most cases the events are not related to intents at all.
