Hello,

I've removed the Social Media Share feature within an Instant App since it's not working as expected.

The Facebook share hasn't worked in Safari or Firefox on iOS, the Twitter share (tweets) are blank and the Short URL (URL link) works sometimes but has un-necessary layer view settings added into the URL that appear to be unnecessary..

All tested within iOS, Safari or Firefox web browsers.

Anyone else have a similar experience? I don't believe there's anything else I can configure to improve functionality but I'm all ears, if so.. 

 

thanks very much!

Hi Brian,

 

I ran a few tests using this Minimalist app. For me both Twitter and Facebook sharing worked on my desktop browser and also using Safari on my iPhone 11. Is your app url public? If so can you share so I can see if there's something specific to your app that is breaking?

Thanks  Kelly,   I've removed the 'Social Media Share' for now but I can add it back if needed for your testing.

I added share back in using a url param and can't repro. I'll ask others on my team to test it out and see if we can find a reproducible test case: https://cast.maps.arcgis.com/apps/instant/minimalist/index.html?appid=fbb7b62389044dc78830bd327ae99a...

We found some issues with the Twitter share so I'm making some updates that will be available in the next release. I also fixed some issues with the layer ids in the url when they haven't been modified. We haven't been able to reproduce the Facebook issues but I"ll keep testing and see if I can figure out what is going on.
