Having another go at creating an iOS Share extension in Livecode.
Ben I had a go with the code snippets you supplied, but I’m not getting my app appearing in the list of apps available to share. I had a bit of a goose around and tried a bunch of options for the info.plist file without result - well in fact I’m getting the app launching with a black screen and then crashing if I use the following style recipe:
This type of plist addition:
Does not crash the app - but appears to do nothing? The following lesson appears related - http://lessons.livecode.com/m/4069/l/1069016-associating-a-file-type-file-extension-with-an-lc-ios-app and I note there are / were issues with iPhone X and this lesson.
My basic question is how do I get an iOS app to work with as an iOS sharing extension such that in any app (say a web browser) where I select the share icon I can use my Livecode app as something that handles the share?
