Provides a deep dive into what data is being shared when you click on the share charm (Win+h keyboard shortcut) from within nearly any Windows 8 application. When you share data with the Windows 8 share charm (or Win+H key), do you know what data is actually being transmitted to another application? Is that private data you don't want shared? You can leverage the Share Data Inspector to get instant feedback and help determine what data is being shared from your Windows 8 applications. Some examples of data you can inspect: - HTML - Text - Storage Files - Bitmap - XML - Json - Url's (links)

Clever utility to explore Windows 8's Share Charm

Windows 8 apps can share data with other apps using the Share Charm. Hit the Windows key and "C" to bring up the charms, and then choose Share. Share Data Inspector is a clever utility which allows you to look at exactly what data is being shared. Imagine that you're viewing a picture in one app and want to share it with another app, such as Mail. If you share the picture with Share Data Inspector first, you'll see exactly what data is being shared.
