A developer can take a url, image, piece of text, or file and just say “hey ShareKit, share this“. ShareKit will present the user with a list of services that support the content they are sharing, handle logging them into the service, prompt for any additional information such as a caption, and display an activity indicator while uploading.ShareKit makes it easy to access individual services as well. A developer can simply write something like:[SHKTwitter shareURL:@"http://getsharekit.com"];ShareKit will shorten the URL, present a dialog to let a user write a message, and even hold onto to the message to send later if the user is offline.FeaturesThe initial version of ShareKit already has support for Delicious, Email, Facebook, Google Reader, Pinboard, Read It Later, and Twitter. It supports four types of content: links, images, text, and files.ShareKit even works offline. Users can share items without an internet connection. ShareKit will hold onto the items until a connection is available.The UI is also completely customizable. It is very easy to make ShareKit match the look of your existing application.Developer BenefitFor developers, adding sharing features to an app is a source of dread. It takes a LOT of work for each service that you add. You have to learn each service’s API, probably learn OAuth, design and build UI to handle all the interactions of logging in and collecting information, and write code to make requests and handle all possible errors. You have to do this for every service and every service has a unique API. It makes it very difficult to add all of the services your users request.In the iOS SDK we have access to MFMailComposeViewController. This is an Apple provided view that lets apps present an email dialog to the user. You feed it some starting values like a subject line and body content and it pops over your existing application, lets the user do their thing and goes away when they are done.This is what I wanted in my apps. I wanted the same controller but for Twitter, Delicious, Evernote, and everything else. That’s what ShareKit is.
