The iOS Share Menu is a system menu that is accessible in many of your iPhone apps, including: Safari, Chrome LinkedIn, Mail, Calendar, and others. 

You're probably familiar with using the Share Menu to forward links to email or text messages, or to post interesting articles on social networks. 

We added support for Nimble on the Share Menu to let you use Nimble's social search to build new contact records on the fly and to also look up existing records. 

Think of it as a mobile version of our Nimble Smart Contacts App that you use in your desktop web browser. 

Note: This feature is not available for Android.

Using iOS Share on LinkedIn Mobile

As you can see in this example, the Share Menu is available on a LinkedIn profile record from the mobile app. By selecting the dots and then "Share via...", I can launch the Nimble app to build a Live Profile or load an existing Nimble profile. 

How to Use the Share Menu on Twitter 

While the Twitter mobile app doesn't have built in features with the iOS Share Menu, you can sign into either Facebook or Twitter via Safari to access this menu. 

  1. Open in Safari or Chrome on your iPhone.
  2. Once on a record, select the middle "share" button to pull up the menu. 
  3. Select Nimble, and we'll build a Live Profile or pull up a matching Nimble record. 

How to Use the Share Menu in the Mail app

The Share Menu is also accessible in the native Mail app on iOS, allowing you to quickly profile contacts while emailing on mobile. 

  1. Open an email thread in the Mail app.
  2. Select the contact you would like to profile.
  3. Select "Share Contact" when on their record.
  4. Select Nimble, and we'll build a Live Profile or pull up a matching Nimble record. 

How to Use the Share Menu in the Calendar app

You can easily use the Share Menu + Nimble in your iOS Calendar app for profiles on people you're meeting with, too! 

  1. Open Calendar App
  2. Go to an event
  3. Select a specific attendee from the event
  4. Open their contact record, select “Share”
