So would the share extension one day enable me to open a photo (from the camera roll) in another app like Instagram or snapseed? Instead of having to go to Instagram then import a photo? (obviously as & when apps update for it)

Kinda like how it works on Android?

Yes I saw that. I personally prefer the default app, would be nice if there a way to use another app to enhance it. Maybe next year :)


If anything apple will add one themselves.

You know you can control it in Control center right?

And on the lock screen. I'm not sure why you would want this and I doubt apple would add it

Pinterest have just updated their app so you can pin using safari share function.

I can't seem to get it to work though. :confused:

If an app has relevant widgets enabled, should they automatically show up in the 'Edit' menu in Notifications?

The pocket extension is working really well. Did not really try another one.
In the keynote they were showing off a translate extension. Anyone know if this available yet?

I really love that i can now send more then 5 photos at once via the Photos App via e-mail via the 'Gmail' app from Google. Unfortunately Apple still doesn't allow to send more then 5 photos if you use the Photos app. This option is available if you go to the Mail app and then add the photos (per photo) where you can add more then 5 :confused:

I added a huge list of share extensions which i just added to the start post of this topic (and a few ones which were mentioned in another topic and other websites).

I just added another few apps that use the share feature (Hootsuite, Google+ and others). These apps already had this feature but weren't in the wiki list. I also created categories.

WhatsApp (finally) added Share extension.

I also hope that either MiniKeePass (free), KeePass Touch (free), KyPass 3 (4,99 dollar) or Keep Pass (2,99 dollar) will soon get a share update so it will be easier in iOS to enter passwords for apps. I like to use KeePass (2.0) on my desktop devices (no subscription).
