  1. Q: Describe App Extensions in iOS8
    A: iOS 8 lets you extend select areas of the system by supplying an app extension, which is code that enables custom functionality within the context of a user task. For example, you might supply an app extension that helps users post content to your social sharing website. After users install and enable this extension, they can choose it when they tap the Share button in their current app. Your custom sharing extension provides the code that accepts, validates, and posts the user’s content. The system lists the extension in the sharing menu and instantiates it when the user chooses it. iOS supports app extensions for the following areas, which are known as extension points:

    1. Share. Share content with social websites or other entities.
