In this tutorial we’ll show you how to use Andmade Share to take control of the Android Share menu, and organise how you share content between apps on your Android phone.
What is the Android Share menu?
The Share menu is one of Android’s best and most powerful features.
The Share icon is present in almost every app, and gives you the ability to share content between apps and even devices virtually seamlessly.
For example, if you see a web page linked in a post in your Reddit app, you can can use the Share button to open that link in your browser of choice, or to save it to the Pocket app, or to send the link in Pushbullet which will then open in your desktop browser, or add the link to a Tweet and share with your followers.
This is just one example—there’s almost no limit to the kind of information you can share from one app to another. And every time you install a new app a new option appears in the Share menu.
This can become a problem, since there’s no way to organise the Share menu, and after a while it can become very cluttered, to the extent that it gets hard to find the tool you want to use.
As always, though, there’s an app in the Play Store that addresses this problem. Andmade Share is a free download (with a paid option also available) that enables you to replace the stock Share system with something even more powerful.
The Share icon shows up in most apps, and enables you to share a wide range of content including photos, tweets, links, documents and much more. In most cases it is represented by the standard three-pronged Share icon.
When you’re ready to share something, in our example a tweet, tap the Share icon.
Normally this would take you straight the Share interface. But with Andmade Share installed you’ll see the Complete action using screen instead.
