Action Extensions for iOS (open files/urls in my ionic app)


#1

Greetings,

I am trying to have my app recieve content from other apps, in iOS this is done using App Action Extension,
Has anyone worked on something similar?
Please note I am not asking about deep linking or so, I want the app to recieve an image or text from other app.
These two urls are asking for the same thing

the app action extention works outside the app, e.g the hosted app, for example I am reading an article in safari and I found a url that I want to save for later I will long press the url > action sheet appreas > I want my app to be shown there to recieve the url

You are probably looking for a Cordova plugin that helps to support this. Here is one, but it is really old and not well integrated: https://github.com/protonet/cordova-plugin-share-extension-helper
