Unsolved How to transfer file using WiFi or Activities(on iOS)?
My app needs some accessory files made by Excel. So, I want to import them to my app. To combat this import-problem, some app use WiFi others use Activities(download files from other app, and open them choosing the one).
Which method is easier to implement?
if you want to use AirDrop or the share file feature of iOS than I'm afraid there's no easy way to implement that.
You'll have to go native/Objectiv-C with that.

Or you could make an app with a wifi socket connection (tcp/udp) and share your data that way. That should be rather easy as well

I maybe use AirDrop for printing and sharing reason : (
