How to make my App share itself


#1

Hello Thunkable community. Great job on being active and giving helpful answers to those who have stuck in some blocks and got here for answers.

I have been developing some App and I want it to be able to share itself. Like, when “Button1” clicked, the App opens a pop for user to choose the sending mechanism and then send itself via that mechanism.

E.G. Button1 (in my App) clicked, the user chooses Bluetooth, my App gets sent over Bluetooth to target phone.

Thank you.

You need to put the Sharing component (in Social), and on the block choose “Share message” and put the text block that you want to share. If you want to share the label text, for example, put the Label.Text block instead of text string block.

Thank you for your reply. I am aware of how to send things using Sharing Component, but, I want to send THE APP itself, not other contents.

Oh, ok.

You could use the Sharing component normally, and use a text string with:

Please check this awesome app: market://details?id=com.name.TheNameOfYour_App

TheNameOfYour_App exactly as it will appear at play store URL. Example: com.tapjitsu.ConsultaFGTS

Sharing the APK install itself to another user?
