How to get listed in the share menu?

I'm creating a messaging app and I would like to enable other apps to share text to my app via the share menu option.

How do I get my app listed in there?

This is the menu I would like to get listed in:

Answer

You can't automatically be added to the UIActivityViewController in other apps. The only things that appear on that "share menu" are a few predefined apps that Apple has added support for, as well as any other app specific activities an app decides to add.

You can setup your app to appear in a list of apps for opening a file but that is not the same as what you are asking for here.
