Abstract

Since the beginnings of the iOS SDK, Apple has provided the means for developers to send messages. It started with the MessageUI framework, which allowed developers to add support for sending e-mail message from within their applications. Then, Apple extended the MessageUI framework to include SMS messages. With iOS 5, Apple added support for Twitter with a new Twitter framework. Now, with iOS 6, Apple has migrated from the Twitter framework to the Social framework, adding support for Facebook, Sina Weibo, and Twitter. Let’s go over how each messaging system works.
