ShrinkURL for iPhone and iPod Touch

Aug 18, 2009

Today I’ve released my first App for the iPhone.

ShrinkURL will turn any URL into a TinyURL, bit.ly or j.mp.

Simply copy a web link to the clipboard, open up shrinkURL and let it automatically convert to your chosen shortening service before automatically copying it back to the clipboard for use in other applications and save your favourite URLs to history and then post them to Facebook, Twitter, Google Reader and more.

What a challenging experience that has been, more so the submission to and approval of the App with Apple, a lot of learning in the last few weeks but so relieved to finally have something out there.

ShrinkURL is available for free from the App Store.
