iOS is not build for sharing content

Normally I take out my iPad late at night and start reading business related news, updates and blogs. On Google Currents or FlipBoard. The most interesting content I share to BufferApp,  Twitter, Facebook, tumblr, LinkedIn, Google+, etc whatever I think suits best.

Today I was activated FlipBoard on my HTC One while waiting for my daughter and I suddenly realized (pretty late I admit ) that I should quit using my iPad for sharing., iOS is not build for sharing content. You can only share to the standard channels which apple allows: twitter, Facebook and email. No direct link to tumblr, BufferApp or any other app that imho suits best for sharing the content. In Android I can share to any App via the share functionality in the menu. And mostly you share rich content, so not just a link to an article but also a thumbnail an intro text etc...

It's time I order an Android tablet.

  1. I’m amazed, I must say. Seldom do I come across a blog that’s both educative and interesting, and let me tell you, you have hit the nail on the head. zzzoomer The problem is something that not enough folks are speaking intelligently about. I'm very happy that I stumbled across this in my hunt for something concerning this.

  2. Having read this I thought it was really informative. I appreciate you spending some time and effort to put this content together. Canon EOS M100 I once again find myself personally spending a lot of time both reading and commenting. But so what, it was still worth it!
