How to use

Getting the list of supported clients

let clients = ThirdPartyMailClient.clients()

Testing the client availability (i.e. if the app is installed)

⚠️ In order to test the client availability, your app needs to declare the relevant URL scheme in its Info.plist file, by adding a LSApplicationQueriesSchemes array. You can find an example here, or check out the documentation.

let application = UIApplication.shared

if ThirdPartyMailer.application(application, isMailClientAvailable: client) {
    // ...

Opening the client (with optional message recipient, subject, and body)

let application = UIApplication.shared

ThirdPartyMailer.application(application, openMailClient: client, recipient: nil, subject: nil, body: nil)


ThirdPartyMailer is written in Swift 5.0, requires iOS 8.0 and above, Xcode 10.2 and above.
