- 26-character shortened links (larger than others)
Some of the social networks we've account with set a character limit for posting. The perfect example is Twitter (140 characters). For this reason, the need to shorten links arises.
TinyURL is a light (20KB) and easy to use app that allows you to shorten large links to a 26-character link. You just need to launch the app, copy the browser link on the blank and tap on "Create". The shortened link will be displayed. Then you can copy or share it through the sharing resources installed in your device (Tweetdeck, Facebook, FourSquare...). It's specially useful is your social network client doesn't shorten links by default. Twitter does it, but others like Tweetdeck doesn't (in its Android version). The only flaw of TinyURL is that the shortened link created is larger (26-characters) than the default Twitter or Hootsuite shortener links (just need 20 characters).
TinyURL has been developed by Peter Baldwin, a reliable develope who has launched other great apps on the market. Check his profile out.
Despite of this, TinyURL is a good choice due to its simplicity and ease of use. Recommendable.

This app is stunningly simplistic. I mean that in the best way possible. You don't need flash or bang to shorten a link. Definitely worth the download.
Its simple and a great app. Thanks
Does what I was looking for and a bit more! :)
I'd love to see other Apps be as simple and fast as this one. Thank you for making it fast and simple.
as their website. This App allows shortening, but not customizing. Uninstalling.
Quick, small, and efficient, and no creepy unusual permissions requests! Thanks!
It's very simple and good at doing what it does. Also, small size is a plus point. But why shall one need a url shortener on android? Twitter auto-shortens the tweets itself! I see no reason to use it.
