Missing intents

Android allows apps to handle requests from other apps. For example, web links are handled by your browser app.

Tasks relies on third-party apps to capture images from your camera, record audio from your microphone, play back audio, select images from a gallery, and perform speech recognition.

This improves the privacy and security of Tasks because it does not need access to your camera or microphone. These specialized apps are also able to provide more features and a better user experience.

Audio recorder

In order to attach an audio note to a task your device must have an audio recorder that responds to the android.provider.MediaStore.RECORD_SOUND intent. If your device does not include a preinstalled audio recorder you may find one on the Play Store or F-Droid
