These sharing options can be accessed by tapping on the SHARE button.
Tapping on this button presents a scrollable menu of options:
This is a fast and effective way to share a picture and text with someone else who has PIXWAP on their device. Anyone in range (Bluetooth or Wifi) who puts their PIXWAP-enabled device into 'receive any' mode will receive a copy of your picture and text.
Using PIXWAP technology the devices automatically detect each other. This method also allows more than one recipient to get your PIXWAP (picture and text).
share with CODE
Like 'share any' devices automatically connect but in a more secure fashion. The user must enter a CODE that must match the code entered by the user of the other device (connecting using their 'receive with code' load option).
As you browse the Internet within PIXWAP, or select pictures or text for sharing, there is no need to store every combination of picture and text to the device. When you wish to share something, make sure you 'save PIXWAP' first. This stores it for your next share and thereafter.
image to photo album
This load option copies the currently stored image to the photo album of the device. You may use your album of photos for various uses including cloud storage.
post to Twitter
Once you have your Twitter account set up in the device's settings, this is a fast way of sharing the current PIXWAP to Twitter. The app will display a share box to allow you to edit or cancel the Post before sending. All tweets you post will be stored on the device and easily searched for using the twitter button.
post to Facebook
Once you have your Facebook account set up in the device's settings, this is fast way of sharing the current PIXWAP to Facebook. The app will display a share box to allow you to edit or cancel the Post before sending. All Facebook posts will be stored on the device and easily searched for using the Facebook button.
Author hint: I use the post features for Twitter and Facebook all the time. I can quickly recall what I have posted and everything is stored together for easy access.
open image in...
This sharing option takes a snapshot of the current window (video images are not supported), stores it in JPEG format and presents a scrollable list of apps for sharing to.
Whatever your reason, whether airbrushing a photo, or annotating a picture, this is an efficient way of interacting quickly with picture-editing apps.
You can also use AirDrop for the latest devices, to transfer your image to apps on nearby IOS devices. The image can then be opened in PIXWAP on the other device or on a picture-editing app.
store PIXWAP in...
Very similar to the previous share option, but the file for sharing combines image and text (a PIXWAP file). This can only be opened using PIXWAP itself (via AirDrop) or in apps that store and manage documents (e.g. cloud service apps like 'dropbox').
open PDF in...
This share option is again, very similar to the previous two options. In this case the main window image is converted by the app into a PDF file (the PDF file format is used globally for working with documents) which can then be opened by other apps. There are great apps out there that allow you to write (or annotate) on PDF documents (e.g. iAnnotatePDF, NoteTakerHD, ClassroomPDF). They usually provide an option to return the annotated document as a PDF back to ... PIXWAP. For the latest technology AirDrop is also supported.
open URL in Browser
This share option only works with PIXWAP's that have a text part containing a web link. PIXWAP recognises the web link by the string 'http:'. This option loads the default device Browser with the Internet address given. Although PIXWAP has a powerful browser built-in there may be times when your default Browser is better.
This share option allows you to post a converted version of the window view in PDF format to email recipients. If you know how to set up email groups this is an efficient way of sending many recipients the same PDF in one go.
The PDF will also contain the text associated with the PIXWAP (for example: some instruction to go along with the PDF). The app will display the standard email share box to allow you to edit or cancel posting.
mail image file
This share option is similar to the previous one, however the window contents is converted to a picture file (JPEG) then sent via email. The app will display the standard email share box to allow you to edit or cancel posting.
