How to Share an App You Love with a Friend

How to Share an App You Love with a Friend

* This post is part of iPhone Life's Tip of the Day newsletter. . *

Finding an app you love is a lot of fun. What’s even more fun is getting your friends obsessed with the same app. Whether it’s a silly game you've become addicted to (I’m looking at you, Neko Atsume) or a challenge app like Quiz Up where you can compete with your friends, it’s easy to share an app you love; here’s how.

In the App Store, find the app you want to share with a friend. I’m using Neko Atsume for our example as my editor Sarah and I are currently addicted. At the top of the page, above the app’s title, is a Share icon. Tap it.
