NOTE: This extension is for GameMaker Studio 1.x. A version optimized for GameMaker Studio 2.x is in the works and will be available shortly.

Give your users the ability to share text or content from your game with the Share extension, for iOS and Android. When you call one of the easy share_* functions, it opens the system's sharing dialog which offers relevant apps to share with (Mail, Facebook, Twitter, etc.) as well as some system functions such as AirDrop on iOS. And if you want more control, you can use the more advanced functions that let you share multiple items at once, define a specific activity to use for sharing, add recipients if you're sending an email, and more. The Share extension comes with a simple example showing most of its features.


  • Share text, URL's, images, and files
  • Ability to share multiple items at once
  • Let the user choose how he wants to share or specify an activity type (Facebook, Twitter, email, text message, etc.)
  • Optionally include a subject and recipients if sending an email
  • Get whether the share was successful and the activity chosen by the user (iOS only)
  • Customize the chooser dialog's title on Android
  • Set the share popover's origin on iPad


Unfortunately, due to a technical restriction based on a Facebook policy, this extension cannot pre-fill the Facebook status message. Attachments (URLs and images) work fine, but normal text has to be added by the user.


Compatible with iOS 8+ and Android 2.3+.
