How to use intent for choosing file browser to select file

How to use intent to prompt user to choose "finish action with" to choosing app to select file (assuming there is a few app to browse file in the device)

I want to filter the file using an extension.. (eg. : *.sav, *.props)

Thank you in advance

Answer

You can use something like this:

    ....  
    Intent intent = new Intent(Intent.ACTION_GET_CONTENT);
    intent.setType("file/*");
    startActivityForResult(intent, YOUR_RESULT_CODE);
    .... 

But I realy doubt that you can set a filter third-party file browsers. Or you can try to use this file dialog: http://code.google.com/p/android-file-dialog/
