iOS 8 apps with custom Sharing and Action sheets


With the introduction of iOS 8 came vast amounts of new functionality, including the ability for users to add custom sharing and actions options to iOS’s share sheet. This enables anything from in-line translation to saving notes to your favorite app from anywhere on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch.

We’ve worked to bring together a compilation of iOS apps that have been updated by their developers to include support for these new features. As we happen upon them, we’ll be adding more apps to the list below, so check back soon for those.
