The number of resources being shared for iOS developers has grown dramatically.  I created this site to feature my own tutorials and tips along with those created by other iPhone programmers.

It seems that with the introduction of the iPad and iPhone 4 there is an explosion in the number of resources and blog posts for iOS development, and it certainly appears that the popularity of the iOS SDK has hit a new peak.

I understand it has become harder to keep up with things so I’d like to introduce a new feature where I will show the previous week’s posts in order of popularity (based on traffic and tweets) .

Social sharing is something that many people look to put into their apps because it increases the chances of an app going viral and getting more sales.

However, with so many features to add — and so little time — it’s often one of those things that ends up being tossed out.

Fortunately for us Nate Weiner has created a slick library that allows you to add in a multitude of social sharing features into an app with just a few lines of code.  Check out the video:

The ability to use many different services is included such as Twitter, Google Reader, Facebook, Read It Later and others.  You can also share different types of content such as URLs, pictures and files.

Best of all the entire library is open source with an MIT license and easily customizable.

The Github Is Here:
ShareKit Github

Check out the homepage and documentation here:
ShareKit Drop In Share Library

Hope you like it, I’m playing with it right now, and so far it looks exactly as described.

Btw, if you’ve created an open source library and would like some exposure (along with a backlink) submit information about it here and I’ll be glad to check it out, and put it in front of the 2,000+ daily visitors to this site.
