iOS Open Source : ShareKit

ShareKit is an open source framework for sharing images, texts, URLs and files. In its current state, content can be shared over Delicious, Email, Facebook, Google Reader, Instapaper, Pinboard, Read It Later, Tumblr and Twitter.

No internet connection when your app is looking to share content, no worries, ShareKit will retry requested sharing services when a network connection is available.

Another nice feature is the option to customize the look of ShareKit, which is straight-forward as the UI consists primarily as subclasses of UITableViewController and UITableViewCells.

Check out the video below to see how all this works:


ShareKit is the work of Nate Weiner of Ideashower. Thanks Nate for creating this open source framework, nice work.
