Application A

    Intent intent= new Intent ("com.example.ABC.redeem");
    intent.SetType ("text/plain");
    intent.PutExtra ("some.code", "SomeString");
    StartActivity (intent);

Application B
I have tried with these but my Application A keep threw me (No Activity found to handle Intent { act= com.example.ABC.redeem typ=text/plain (has extras) })

// How to write the intent-filter ?
[Activity (Label = "TestRewards", Name = "com.example.ABC.redeem")]         
    new [] {Intent.ActionDefault},
    DataMimeType = "text/plain"
public class TestRewards : Activity {...}

    Hi HS Tan,

    I have about the same problem. Did you solve it or find an answer somewhere?

    @KeesPaul ,

    Maybe you can try to add "Categories". It works for me, but i'm not sure is the the proper way to do this.

            new [] {""},
            Categories = new[] {"android.intent.category.DEFAULT"},
            DataMimeType = "text/plain"

    I tried that, did not work for me. I opened a new question for this, but no response yet.

    Thanks anyway.
