Sharing the Magic of Share

The Magic of Share!

There was a question in my class recently that had a very familiar answer.

The question…”How do you save a picture you receive in a text message?”


The solution is quite hidden and not obvious. But to make a point related to this week’s Nugget, let me ask a few more questions?

  1. How do you print a web page in the Safari browser?
  2. How do you place a photo in a custom Album you have created?
  3. How do you create a PDF file from a document in the Notes app?
  4. How do you AirDrop a photo to a friend who is nearby?


This point….The solution to each of these questions is identical!!

This week’s featured Nugget encourages you to explore the magic of Share and all that it can do in the apps on your iPhone and iPad.

When you have a question about how to accomplish a function in an app, consider the Share icon as the gateway to many of the things you need to do. Please read more..

Your iPhone apps will have many hidden functions that are accessed using the Share icon.  Given the number of options that are presented with Share it almost makes the function magical.
