How to add more options to your iPhone's share menu

How to add Facebook to your iPhone / Ipad's share menu options.

Whenever you tap the share button a two tiered "Activities" menu opens that gives you a variety of sharing options. Depending on what type of object you intend to share (photo, music, Notes, files, etc.), default options like AirDrop, Messages, Mail, AirPlay, Duplicate, Copy, etc. will come up. Some may not be aware, however, that the menu is customizable - you can add other options like Twitter, Facebook, Snapchat, Instagram, iCloud Drive, Dropbox and more. This makes sharing a lot easier than opening up individual apps and then accessing your photos/files in order to share them. Here's how to add more options to your share menu:

  1. First, open up a photo or other file and tap the share button in the bottom left corner (or elsewhere depending on the file type).
  2. How to add Snapchat to your iPhone / Ipad's share menu options.
  3. Now you will see two rows of options. Scroll all the way to the right on either row until you see the "More" option. Tap on it.

  5. You are presented with a list of toggles for all applicable apps. For instance, if you are attempting to share a photo and you have the Snapchat app on your iPhone, it will appear as an option. Toggle on the apps that you want to appear in your menu. If you don't see the app you want to add, check the "More" option on the other tier (and make sure you have that particular app downloaded). For instance, "Add to iCloud Drive" and Dropbox are in the bottom tier of options.

That's all there is to it, your apps will now appear in your sharing options.


Something must be wrong with my iPhone or Dropbox. The Instagram app is not showing amongst the Share options when trying to Export a pic from Dropbox. The list available only displays a few options (including Kindle???) but nope, no Instagram, and as far as I can tell no option of manually adding it.
I have no issues posting to Instagram from my camera roll, but Dropbox is driving me nuts right now. Any thoughts? thank you.

Did you find a solution to this? I have the same problem.

I have tried this but, although I have instagram on my iPhone, it doesn't appear in the list of options when I press 'more'. I have tried a number of times and it doesn't appear. It is very frustrating. Any tips for how to get it there??
