Android How to get browser history records in all the browser apps?


I want to get all the browser history records from different browsers in android mobile phone? (Maybe as you know, there are usually more than one browser apps in a phone).


Assuming that all your browsers utilize this API to save history, this should be useful to you: <a href="http://developer.android.com/reference/android/provider/Browser.html" rel="nofollow">http://developer.android.com/reference/android/provider/Browser.html</a>. Otherwise, this is not practically possible.


You can do this in your Activity to get history record in android browser.

Cursor mCur = activity.managedQuery(Browser.BOOKMARKS_URI, Browser.HISTORY_PROJECTION, null, null, null); mCur.moveToFirst(); if (mCur.moveToFirst() && mCur.getCount() > 0) { while (mCur.isAfterLast() == false) { Log.v("titleIdx", mCur .getString(Browser.HISTORY_PROJECTION_TITLE_INDEX)); Log.v("urlIdx", mCur .getString(Browser.HISTORY_PROJECTION_URL_INDEX)); mCur.moveToNext(); } }

You may also need add blow permission to get history.

<uses-permission android:name="com.android.browser.permission.READ_HISTORY_BOOKMARKS"/>
