Description

Returns the path to the directory where user shared pictures are stored.

Note: In desktop applications, "shared" means "shared between different users". In mobile applications, "shared" means "shared between different applications".

If the system running your application does not support the requested folder, or if the requested folder does not exist in the system, this function returns an empty string instead.

  • On Windows and Android, it points to a system-wide directory.
  • On OS X, it points to a user-specific, application-agnostic directory.
  • On iOS Device, it returns an empty string as this directory is currently not supported.
  • On iOS Simulator, it points to an application-specific directory.
