Share widget

The Share widget allows end users to share the app by posting it to a social media account, sending an email with a link, or embedding it in a website or blog. It also provides a URL and QR code of the app. It shares the entire app. It doesn't support sharing specific content in the app. To add a Share widget, drag it anywhere on a page and use either pop-up or inline style to fit your app design.

Examples

Use this widget to support app design requirements such as the following:

  • You want end users to share your app with others. Add a Share widget with an icon that encourages them to share.
  • You have a blog style site and want to align media share buttons across your content.

Usage notes

It's recommended that you not add a Share widget to a Widget Controller because the Share widget is already a wrapped widget that can perform options in a pop-up.
