mergPop

Post by Jellobus » Sat Jul 11, 2015 1:23 am

Hi,

I am trying to integrate social media buttons into my app but it seems challenging. I wonder what mergPop actually does. I attached a screenshot of a famous 2048 game. it shows a native action sheet of iOS 8. will mergPop activate a native action sheet on both iPhone and iPad? do I need mergSocial along with mergPop??
I like to use mergPop if it's a right product.Please advice.

Cheers,

Louis

Yes, that's what you get using the mergPopActivity command and no you don't also need mergSocial

Hi monte

So those it mean that mergePop alone completes all process to post message on twitter, Facebook, sms etc? if it is the case, why there are mergsocial?

Thank you,

Louis

MergSocial allows you to create a Facebook or twitter button and will directly bring up the post dialog. mergPop goes via the activity picker. It just depends on what you want which you might want to add to your app.

Hi Monte,

I purchased mergPop and its a great product! I might use mergSocial as well. Is it fully functional in with up-to-date DEI? (IOS8.4, LC7, Xcode 6.3.2) And will mergTweet come with mergSocial?

Thanks

Louis

Hi Louis

mergTweet was an old external that I did when Apple only had a twitter framework. Once they did the Social framework I rolled it into the one external so a call to mergSocial will work with the Social framework and if that's not available fall back to the Twitter framework.
