Filter out Intents you don"t want to show from a IntentChooser dialog. For example your own app, competing apps or just apps you have a share integration by SDK already :) Based on http://stackoverflow.com/questions/5734678/custom-filtering-of-intent-chooser-based-on-installed-android-package-name/8550043#8550043

do not use Arrays.asList() inside loop, you are recreating same list again and again.

Doesn't work for Intent.ACTION_VIEW unfortunately
