1. HowTo share Files from Qt Mobile App with other Apps on Android and iOS

On Android we're using Intents, on iOS UIDocumentInteractionController.

Developed and tested on Android 6, Android 7, Android 8, iOS and Qt 5.10.1 Android: This release now supports FileProvider and sets Permissions if incoming Files need iOS: This release supports Xcode 9.x and minimum iOS 10 (required by Qt 5.10.1)

Now more examplels included to share with other Apps: PNG, JPEG, DOCX, PDF

Here's an Overview about the workflows, per ex. Open a File from inside your App and edit in another App outside.

Overview

The goal of this app is to Open / View / Edit Files from your AppData Location in other Apps. But to be able to access your Files from AppData Location you first must copy them from AppData to shared UserData - per ex. DocumentsLocation. Of course at the end you need the modified File and you must delete the copy from Documentslocation, so we must watch for a SIGNAL from Android Intent or iOS UIDocumentInteractionController.
