Hi,

Does anybody find out yet if it's possible to use the new iOS 8 features such as the "System Share Menu" (Share | Xamarin) integration with an Adobe Air build app?

I couldn't find ANY information on this topic in the AIR docs.

Would love to get an app listed in the share menu though!

I'm looking forward to your thought on this.

I would imagine you would need to make use of an ANE for that functionality.

Even to get listed in the System Share Menu?

I used the code below in an Air for Android project to do that:

  <intent-filter>
  
<action android:name="android.intent.action.SEND" />
  
<category android:name="android.intent.category.DEFAULT" />
  
<data android:mimeType="text/plain" />
  
</intent-filter>


I was hoping for something similiar for iOS 8.

The share menu on iOS 8 is nothing like Android. It actually requires development of basically a completely separate application. So far I've had no luck getting one to work and I've tried the most obvious methods:

  • packaging the appex with an ANE
  • packaging the appex with the AIR container app
  • using a class instead of a storyboard

But no luck yet...
