Mercury Development Connect and Share Framework
What would the Internet be without its ever-expanding network of social media and sharing services? Social networks like Facebook, Twitter, Foursquare, and Google+ have hundreds of millions of users. The average person spends more than two hours each day participating in social media, including the time spent accessing networks through mobile devices.
How can your company capitalize on this expanding infrastructure?
Simple – Connect and Share! Mercury Development's brand new mobile framework enables your custom app to access all major social networking services, improving your app's functionality, increasing ease of use, and helping to build awareness faster.
Easy, registration-free sign-in, content and event sharing, access to friends and invitations – Connect and Share combines it all and more in a one dynamic package. Quick to integrate and easy to support, Connect and Share guarantees that your custom Mercury Development app is cost effective and cutting edge.
Skip Inconvenient Registration
You can't wait to start working with that great new app. The last thing you want to do is register and validate another new account. Your users feel the same way.
With Mercury Development's Connect and Share framework, users of your application can skip the registration process and sign in with their existing Facebook or Twitter accounts. Forget having to constantly remember all those extra passwords!
By linking to an existing social profile, users not only save time but all information is automatically entered and verified. Mercury Development's innovative Connect and Share – the premiere gateway to faster user registration.
Sharing is Caring
Enable your users to share content right from your custom app!
With Connect and Share, users of your application can send e-mails, post tweets, update their Facebook status, and share content.
Text updates, amazing pictures, awesome audio – the framework does it all. After your app is added to the online marketplace, all you need to do is wait for the downloads to begin!

Expand Your User Base
Mercury Development's Connect and Share Framework enables you to integrate social network connections into your app with a simple touch of the screen.
Connect and Share contains all the necessary code to allow your users to invite people to the app via the many possible options on their mobile device – text message, e-mail, Facebook messages, or Twitter posts.
By adding a simple Invite button to your app screen, new users are just a tap away.
Advanced Social Networking
As Mercury Development has expanded its presence in the realm of mobile software, the company has worked on several apps featuring full-scale social integration features.
Previous projects include a Facebook-integrated app to track the geo-location of your friends and a voice-oriented micro-blog allowing users to record short voice snippets and either post them in a public timeline or send them as voice SMS to their friends.
A great example of Mercury Development's advanced social networking expertise is the new Pin.FM app now available at the App Store. Pin.FM allows you to keep track of all your content posted in different networks and share voice comments with your friends. The app collects your pictures from Facebook, Twitter updates, Foursquare check-ins, and photos from Instagram, with even more features and services coming soon!
