Shareboard
Multiple social network posting



Tired of opening different apps to speak your mind across the multitude of social networks you use? For such situations, a handy and compact app to share contents to multiple social networks from under one screen.

You can post status updates to Twitter, Facebook and Google+ (not fully supported : see 3rd post) simultaneously, optionally along with or without a picture. You can toggle which networks you want to post from within a simple minimalist UI.

  • No useless running in background.
    [*]No "Google analytics mumbo jumbo" data collection.
    [*]No privacy infringing usage statistics collection.
    [*]No online caching/buffering of posts.

Currently Twitter and Facebook is supported and application is under active development.
Indirect Google + is added since v1.5.0 (hacky workaround against API restrictions from google)

Permissions and Privacy

  • The app only uses Network access permissions to connect and post to requested social networks.
  • External storage read permission has been added so that selecting pictures from memory card doesn't crash the app.
  • There is no advertisement in app.
  • Nothing is posted to user profiles without the user content (Basically the only function of the app is to post only when user wants it to), so you can be assured of your privacy.
  • Unlike other apps, there's no middle server that'd reroute your posts to multiple networks. All updates are direct from your mobile to official API.

Google Plus support is added as an experimental feature since version 1.5.0.

Due to restrictions from Google, the Google + API is read only and could not be used to post content to individual timelines.
There is an API available, but that is only for posting to G+ pages (and not profiles) and it could be used only by substantially big companies (like Buffer) under permission from google.

Therefore, the sharing mechanism in Shareboard is implemented to pull up the Google+ app's sharing dialog with the contents already filled in, so you have to click the share button on g+ once more to get the job done.

Also the G+ sharing dialog will pop up as a separate task, so that you can keep it minimized and come back to shareboard while it's uploading/posting.

This is as streamlined I could make the process. After this method, I've been feeling easy to share more frequently. I hope this would similarly make G+ posting a little more easy for lot of people like me.

Please feel free to give feedback and more constructive ideas and suggestions if any.

Did a test and installed Facebook messenger, after that I could log in just fine.
Perhaps something to look into?
Keep up the good work! ☺

Did you also install Facebook messenger like I did? Not just the Facebook app?

I don't know why but it worked for me after I did that. Give it a try if you are not against the Facebook messenger app.

It shouldn't be having any dependency on official fb apps. I'll look into the matter and update soon.

Update : first time you post, it'd ask for permission instead of sharing the post. Once you grant permission, press the SEND button again.

Try what everyone is suggesting. Install Facebook messenger, login will work after that. I remove messenger after that and it continues to work.

I've tried this on my Nexus 4 and Nexus 7, both have the exact same result.

I'm able to log into Twitter just fine, I can post messages to Twitter just fine as well.

When I attempt to login to Facebook I get a popup telling me that "ShareBoard would like to access your public profile and friend list", I click OK....nothing happens. I do not get the login script I would expect to see. I try to post a message and choose Facebook and I get a toast telling me that I need to login to Facebook first.

I do not have the fb messenger app installed, nor am I going to install it.

it says log in and when I do it, gives me the message that shareboard will access the profile, push OK.. Doesn't log in.
thanks i tried this and it worked, logged into fbook, authorised the app and posted.

On a side note - when posting I set privacy to "only me". I saw the post no problems. But there is no way to change privacy for future posts afterwards without logging out and log back in to fbook within shareboard. Or just update it on the website.

Anyway I reinstall fbook app and it still posted ok. When I logged out of fbook on shareboard and tried to log in again it wouldn't work (this is with the fbook app reinstalled).

On a different matter I got a fail from Twitter this time. See attached screen.

Anything else I can try to help? :)

Edit : actually I can't change privacy at all even with logging in/out of fbook. Think I will have to remove authorisation manually on the fbook website and then re-add it thru shareboard.
