Tutorial written by gamecorpstudioOriginally published on 24th, September 2015 - 6 revisions

hey guys i was searching for a default way and easy way to share for whatsapp and found this tutorial bellow by @stctr
share on twitter custom

will follow the tutorial till the part where we need to add the url so at the browser calling

for whatsapp will add in the url this code : "whatsapp://send?text=Hey"&text

for vibe will add this code : "viber://forward?text=Hey"&text

keep in mind the text at end is a global variable that i used inside the capx that you can customize as you want

you can also remove the Hey after the text= for both versions and customize on start of layout using text_set_value: "Hey Check This Game http://www.yoururl.com" or by adding the text already in it in the default variable form up in your layout

you need to use browser object, and use the action got to url then add inside the bellow formats: in the capx i used target top, but then u can set it to anything u like. have fun with it.
"viber://forward?text="&text

"whatsapp://send?text="&text

so here it is the capx(requires r214)and apk compiled with ludei via coconjs plugin(2.1)

remember in order for the share to work, you need to have in ur mobile phone or tablet the apps installed vibe and whatsapp, the code inside works for IOS also , basically will work, for any browser or compiled game, as long is accessed by mobile phone, and has the apps(whatsapp,viber) installed on it.Download Capx And APK

@Gamecorpstudio
Should this work with Intel XDK? Or do I need some other plugin to get the browser function to work please?
I've copied your instructions exactly but I can't get Whatsapp to work, when I touch the button nothing happens at all.

It works fine in your attached APK file, but it doesn't work if I compile a new APK file from your attached CapX file.
Is there a step I'm missing please?

Thanks!

Just to follow up on my question above...

I've now compiled my game using Cocoon.io and the Whatsapp button works fine.
Must've been an Intel XDK issue.

Thanks for the tutorial!

oh sorry for my late reply the forum seems to be not notifying right if you still have the issue send me a pm on my profile il get notified by email, yea the codes above should be supported in any compiler for android as long the official SDK expressions are still the same, check whatsapp sdk viber sdk for that. it was a pretty old tutorial i did so im a bit out of loop when it comes to what is the latest version.
