Gamedev Utility Belt: Unity Native Share Plugin

I decided to start a series of posts about some game development resources that are part of my gamedev utility belt and that helps me on my game projects.

For this first post, the chosen one is the Unity Native Share Plugin by Süleyman Yasir KULA that I used on my latest mobile game Puzzimals.

Introduction

Unity Native Share Plugin is:

A Unity plugin to natively share files (images, videos, documents, etc.) and/or plain text on Android & iOS.

When you use this plugin on the Android and iOS project you will be able to invoke the native share of the target operating system. For example, here is the result when I used it on Android:
