This Widget Lets You Share Screenshots From Anywhere In iOS

Taking screenshots on iOS couldn’t be easier. Just by holding down the Home and sleep/wake buttons simultaneously, anyone can take a screenshot that is automatically saved to the device’s Camera Roll. Screenshots are great for showing developers what bugs look like, or just sharing something awesome with your friends. Some people even like to see what everyone else’s home screens look like and you’ll need to take a screenshot for that.

Once you’ve taken your screenshots though, you’ll need some way to share them. Yes, you could go the long way around and open Twitter, Mail, iMessage or any other sharing app and do it from there. Or you could use something like ScreenShare.

ScreenShare main

Available to download from the App Store and costing just $0.99, ScreenShare is a quick and easy way to see all of your screenshots and then share them instantly, right from within the app. You’ll be able to share via all the usual methods and a few that are a tad more unusual, too. We suspect you’ll find what you’re looking for and you won’t have to leave the app to do it.


Once you’ve shared your screenshot you can even use ScreenShare to delete it so that you don’t end up with your Camera Roll being full of screenshots that you just don’t need anymore. We’ve fallen into the trap of having hundreds of megabytes of screenshots sat on our iPhones and iPads before, and it’s just no fun at all. Delete them when you’re done with them!


Another feature which we like about ScreenShare is the Today widget that lets users quickly view and share screenshots right from the Today screen inside Notification Center. It’s not a big thing by any means, but it’s a sweet little cherry on top of an app that will already prove plenty useful to many.
