Hi,

is there any method in Corona SDK for opening a file selector so that the user can choose a file from his iphone memory / android sd-card? Or would I have to write kind of a small file explorer for that with list-views and stuff?

The purpose is that the user should be able to select a photo to use in the app.

There is no built-in feature for this. I do believe there are one or two plugins for this in the Marketplace.

Did you read about media.selectPhoto() api? I use it in my app and I'm not a good programmer yet. It's very easy to use.
