Build Status

Android Network Intents

Android Network Intents (ANI) is a library to send Android Intent objects to listening apps/devices via multicast (UDP). This library has been written to utilize it for writing simple app or service discovery protocols but as it can be used to send and receive any Intents through the network without knowing the specific receivers there might be a lot of other use cases.
