FAQ

What is shareSDK?

shareSDK is an analytics dashboard geared toward social that works with native iOS sharing. We support and track all UIActivity services, including your own custom activity types. Instantly track posting to facebook & twitter, email, text messages, and more.

Our analytics provide insight into what matters most... know how your users are sharing and posting your apps content to social networks.

How much does it cost?

Zero, zip, zilch, nada… shareSDK UIActivity Analytics is free. We plan on adding premium features in the future.

Couldn’t I just integrate sharing services on my own? Why use shareSDK?

Yes and we encourage you to continue using your primary provider of analytics, however, they are not setup to track native iOS sharing. Our sole focus is tracking all UIActivites in your app and giving you meaningful analytics from this data. By using us in addition to your current analytics service, you will be able to track the social component of your app so you can increase its virality and understand what in-app content your users are sharing.

Can I add a custom UIActivity type to shareSDK?

We automatically track all UIActivity types so there is no need to adjust anything. However, you may want to add it to our UIActivity Directory so that other developers can take advantage of your custom UIActivty. Also, our library is open-source and can be downloaded here; we encourage community improvements/adjustments to our code.

I forgot my username and/or password, can you help me?!?

No problem, just use our forgot your username/password form and an email will be sent to you.

Can I create more than one shareSDK account?

Please do! We encourage you to create as many accounts as you need but during our beta period, you must use a unique email address for each account. However, you can add multiple apps to one account and view analytics data for each individual app or all apps combined.

We are working on adding profiles with permissions to your account so you can allow clients to access analytics data on their individual apps without having access to other apps in your account.
