Sending Recipes via Email or AirDrop
Have a recipe you want to send to a friend or family member? You can easily send someone a copy of a recipe via email, messaging apps, or AirDrop.
When you send a copy of a recipe via email or messaging apps, the message will include the text of the recipe and you can optionally include a file attachment that can be opened directly in AnyList if your friend also uses AnyList.
AirDrop allows you to send a recipe directly to another person who has an iOS device with AnyList installed.
The Send Recipe Link option lets you easily share a link to the original recipe source, which is a great way to share recipes from your favorite recipe websites.
