You can choose which services enabled through the NSArray on AirDropViewController.m we set the following parameters:

NSArray *excludedActivities = @[UIActivityTypePostToTwitter, UIActivityTypePostToFacebook,
                                    UIActivityTypeMessage, UIActivityTypeMail,
                                    UIActivityTypePrint, UIActivityTypeCopyToPasteboard,
                                    UIActivityTypeAssignToContact, UIActivityTypeSaveToCameraRoll,
                                    UIActivityTypeAddToReadingList, UIActivityTypePostToFlickr,
                                    UIActivityTypePostToVimeo, UIActivityTypePostToTencentWeibo];

controller.excludedActivityTypes = excludedActivities;

The sharing options are commented out - to activate it, uncomment each one you want included.

AirDrop and sharing integration

Step 1 : import AirDropViewController.h in your header class

#import "AirDropViewController.h"

Step 2: extends your class from "AirDropViewController"

@interface TextViewController : AirDropViewController

Step 3: set object to be shared (inside the viewDidLoad, in this case the object to be shared is the text of UITextView):

self.objectsToShare = @[self.textView.text];

Step 4: finish, run your code in real device (on simulator you can test only Social account, no Airdrop!)


Data exchange with AirDrop compatible only between Apple devices, works on WiFi or Bluetooth, the latter more appropriate in case you want to transfer a document from one device to another when you're out of a building. But how does it work technically AirDrop? Just click on the content to be shared and, after opening the sharing menu, press the icon for the contact to whom you want to send the file. The transfers are encrypted with AirDrop, then risk does not arise during transmission of documents.

Users with iOS 7 will automatically appear as "visible" in AirDrop and will be able to exchange or receive files from other people nearby. Alternatively, you may choose to restrict the operation of AirDrop and to be seen as "available" only friends in the Contacts list.
