The above video shows how easy it is to share a web resource (third party or owned - e.g. by DropBox) using PIXWAP. The user opens a new tab in Safari, searching for MATHCENTRE - Google finds the website, the user navigates to a resource which so happens to be a PDF, copies the link to the clipboard, switches to PIXWAP, selects the LOAD OPTIONS, selects FROM CLIPBOARD, this quickly reads in the URL (then loads the page in the main display area), at which point the link can be shared, and the user 'Posts to Twitter' and that's it.
After posting the image and text, the user checks the list of shares made by tapping the SHARES rectangle. Scrolling and selecting previous shares is easy (a search engine would allow previous shares to be found quickly). Old shares can be referenced and reused as needed. All shares with text and image are stored on the device (in compressed format so as not to use large amounts of disk space).
In Twitter, followers would see the captured image plus the URL link (including any further text the user would like to add).
Unlike other apps there is no registration required
