The “Share” feature on Android is easily my favourite feature of the platform. The very liberty that it gives me to share is liberating.
I am reading through my Twitter timeline and run into tweets that I find inspiring. I hit the share button and I am given an extensive range of share media, including via Bluetooth, Gmail, Google+, Messages, and Notes.
Best of all, I can save that tweet as a note for offline reference. It’s similar when browsing a web page. While you vant share the content of the page, you can at least share the link.
3rd Party Apps Too
What’s even nicer is that if you install a third party communications or storage app, that app is added to the share list.
An example: after installing the LinkedIn, WordPress and WhatsApp applications, anytime I hit the Share button, they are included as media options that I can share through/to.
