iOS 8 app extensions allow for apps to share information and for one app to interact with another without the second app having to be open. This feature makes the Share button immensely more useful and powerful.
I expect Pocket, the superb read-it-later app, will be one of the apps that gives the Share button the most use now in iOS 8 – and the app has been updated to take full advantage of the new sharing features. Here’s the short and sweet description of the Pocket update for iOS 8:
Introducing the Pocket share option! Save to Pocket from any app that supports the native iOS share menu, including Safari.
This update takes advantage of more new iOS 8 features as well:
– Share to other apps that support the new iOS sharing options
– Handoff lets you seamlessly continue reading an article where you left off between your iOS devices
– Lots of bug fixes and improvements
Pocket is one of my most shared-to apps on Android, and now it will certainly be the same on my iPad.
