Adding “Save PDF to iBooks” Support

David Gelphman:

The only substantive change needed to make the sample app use the share sheet is to take out the use of the UIPrintInteractionController from the sample and replaced it with the use of a UIActivityViewController. This controller takes an array of “Activity Items” as part of its initialization. When the controller is presented it determines what activities (or actions) can be taken on those activity items and allows the user to choose from those actions.

If you’ve already got printing working in your app, now’s the time to update to using the Share Sheet method instead of the older method. Without a lot of extra work on your part, users get a great new option to save your application’s content in a print ready format. And if you’ve not added printing to your application to date, the “Save PDF to iBooks” feature provides yet another reason to do so.
