With iOS came Share Sheet Menu customizing options for iPhone/iPad users, using which you could add third party applications to your sharing list, which, in iOS 7 was not an accessible option. No Instagram. No Dropbox. No Pinterest. Besides email, messages, and iCloud, the only third-party options to choose from were Flickr, Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and Vimeo.
The fact that now you can add your most often used applications to your sharing menu, that is other than Apple’s own extensions, is a great sigh of relief in itself.
Let us, now, find out how you can do that.
There are a few some ways by which you can manage your share sheet. Let’s get a few things sorted first. Not all the apps in your iPhone are supportive of this feature, so this article is only relevant for the apps that do support it.
Getting back to customizing:
Tada! Now everything you see in your share sheet is of your choice.
Please note: Mail and messages are some of the services that can not be disabled.
Drag it to its desired position and tap on ‘done’ at the top most right corner.
Bingo! The customization has been done. Phew.
Not that big of a deal anymore, is it? Making things so handy and easy to use. This update is surely a breather for all the Apple fanatics.
Because who said sharing is only confined to friends and family. You can also share stuff with yourself by saving something that interests you more than anyone or by adding something to the read-it-later app when there’s no time in hand.
How about you wish to create a note of something important you found on Safari? Just tap on the text you want to save and share it to the built-in Notes app.
The built-in Notes app has particularly great share-sheet supportt. You can add photos, text or a URL to an existing note or a new note, straight from the share sheet.
The update in the iOS “share menu” is perhaps all iPhones/iPad’s needed to make the device all the more user-friendly. With iOS being Apple’s latest operating system, it is safe to say that things are just advancing for the consumer, in terms of usability and accessibility. Way to go, Apple!
