Google+ iOS SDK 1.4.0: in-app share box and ID token support

Thursday, October 3, 2013 | 10:00 AM

Today we are announcing version 1.4.0 of the Google+ iOS SDK. The new version includes two of the most highly requested features from the developer community:

  1. In-app share box. Now your users can share with their Google+ circles, directly from your iOS app! In addition, the native in-app share box supports image and video attachments. If you've already implemented browser-based sharing, you can switch to the native in-app share box with a single line change:
              Just update this:
     [[GPPShare sharedInstance] shareDialog]
              to this:
     [[GPPShare sharedInstance] nativeShareDialog]

                             
The native iOS in-app share box                                            
  2. ID token support. ID tokens allow you to securely verify the identity of users of your iOS                     clients to your application servers.

Companies like Huffington Post are already taking advantage of these new features. To download or to learn more about the Google+ iOS SDK, visit our Google+ Developers site.
