FileXchange offers a way for iOS apps to send multiple files to each other. It uses the "Open In..." feature of iOS to hand over a list of the files and information on how to retrieve them from the sender.
Transfers and communication are done using Robbie Hanson's CocoaHTTPServer class.
Photosmith and ShutterSnitch use FileXchange to share photos specifically, dubbing the service "PhotoCopy".
If you wish to add PhotoCopy to your app:
- To avoid confusion, use the exact name "PhotoCopy" in your UI. One word, with a capital P and C.
- Included in the FileXchangeSender project are icons you can use if your UI needs graphics.
If you have any questions about implementation or want your PhotoCopy-enabled app listed here, please tweet me @2ndNatureDev.
FileXchange and PhotoCopy are free for all to use / implement.
