What is Overshare? It’s the answer to the pit I felt in my stomach when I contemplated writing sharing code all over again for Unread. Sharing is so common, and so important, yet there’s no library out there that covers both the easy and complex cases gracefully.
Overshare makes it trivial to add rich sharing options to your iOS apps. In a word, Overshare has everything:
Beautiful share sheets with pixel-perfect, full-color icons in a simple layout.
Lots of tweakable options, including a gorgeous dark mode.
Built-in integration with iOS Twitter and Facebook accounts.
Built-in integration with popular third-party services like App.net, Instapaper, and more.
Complete multi-account management, including authentication and storing credentials securely in the Keychain.
Killer text editing views with as-you-type Twitter syntax highlighting, Riposte-style swipe gesture cursor navigation, and automatic smart quotes.
URL scheme integration with 1Password, OmniFocus, and Things.
Head on over to the Overshare GitHub account and check it out!
Overshare will be shipping in the 1.0 of Unread, and will likely find its way into Riposte and Whisper, too. If you’re so inclined, we’d love for you to test Overshare in your development apps and let us know how it goes.
