Sharing has become such an important part of our digital existence. From data to rants, we are spreading it across the ether. Now, let’s take our Android phones. The normal process of sharing something involves selecting it and sending it across via a default share button. The job gets done but you can usually share with one application (or via the application) at a time.
At first glance, it doesn’t sound too limiting. But pause for a moment here. Think of the many applications you use to communicate in your day-to-day life. From social channels like Twitter to the old-world email, each brings you in touch with your circle. So, wouldn’t it be great if you could share a byte of information via all these applications in one go?
Andmade Share for Android makes this a possibility. In one sweep it enhances the way we share information from our mobiles.
Andmade Share replaces and improves Android’s default share
Andmade Share is a neat application for the guy (or gal) who likes to share a lot. If you are a part of this digital sharing epidemic, then the multiple sharing options will not only help you touch base with many others but also be a productive time saver.
Andmade Share simply replaces Android’s default share menu with something that works in the same way but with more than a few options. The sharing app allows you to share with a choice of multiple apps at one go. Plus, it lets you decide the order of the apps with which you would like to share the bytes of information.
Start sharing with multiple applications
On the first run, Andmade takes you through a welcome screen which explains the simple utility of the mobile application.
You can replace Android’s default sharing with Andmade Share by choosing it from the option that pops-up when you start sharing something.
As soon as you choose Andmade Share for a particular task, a long sharing menu appears. It’s a list of applications with checkboxes against them you can selectively use for sharing information.
Mark the checkbox of the application (or multiple applications) with which you wish to share. Tap against any one of the selected entries and Andmade launches each app for you in sequence. For instance, if you choose to share with Facebook and Gmail in that specific order, Andmade Share opens Facebook first and then with the share complete it automatically opens Gmail. If you selected an unintended app, you can easily backtrack without breaking the batch process.
A few more things you can do…
With Andmade Share you can drag each share option up or down to rearrange the list in the order you want. For instance, I generally use Go SMS, Facebook, and Gmail as the communication mediums of choice. I simply re-order them and keep them together.
You can hide unused applications from the list by selecting them and pressing the Hide button next to Share.
From the settings (the gear icon on top-right), you can set the default email address which will be used by the Gmail app to share your information when you choose it.
Some applications like Evernote have the Fast Share option enabled by default. It is shown by the symbol of a lightning bolt on top of the icon. In the case of Evernote, Fast Share directly uploads the information instead of creating a note. It simply skips a step for a faster upload.
Simultaneous sharing using Andmade Share has lots of benefits – I can share a snap in Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, and Picasa in one go. I can send a file to Dropbox and Gmail at one instant. And definitely, depending on your lineup of apps, you will have a few more unique uses of your own.
