Preview of Upcoming Improvements to Sharing in Pro

The next version of Read It Later Pro will include a major update to the app’s sharing features.  Sharing will now use each service’s native APIs instead of the tedious process of sharing through the web view.  It also will add the ability to share offline.

The work I’ve done for this update I’ve released as an open source project called ShareKit.  If you’d like to see a preview of what is coming, check out the demo shown on ShareKit’s announcement blog post.

For developers, ShareKit means you can add full sharing features to your app with just 3 lines of code.  The initial release supports 4 types of content (urls, images, text, and files) and support for Delicious, Email, Facebook, Google Reader, Pinboard, Read It Later and Twitter.
