AddThis SDK for iOS Updated

We’re happy to announce that we have updated and released AddThis 0.2.0 for iOS with support for Facebook SDK 3.0 and a couple bug fixes you all asked for. Leveraging Facebook’s latest SDK allows us to provide an improved sharing experience to your iPhone/iPad users who share to Facebook by using updated UI components.

Existing users of the AddThis SDK for iOS will need to download and replace the current library with the latest version and include the new Facebook SDK. Full Instructions and the new downloads are now available.

And if you’re already testing your apps for iOS 6 which comes out later this fall, we have you covered with a new build that leverages the native Facebook/Twitter sharing provided by iOS. This new build allows you to take full advantage of the new iOS 6 sharing capabilities. You can find the link to this custom build right below our updated build here. Just remember that you need the iOS 6 SDK and Xcode 4.5 to use this custom build. So go download the right SDK for you and let us know what you think.
