"Shorten your links and share them"

Reviewed by / Aug 31, 2011

TinyURL shortens your links to make it easier sharing them, specially via Twitter

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.

    BEST Android add on. I would pay for this app simply because it's in the 'share' menu.

    Like the SHARE options also. I tend to install/uninstall often since I have a phone that doesn't seem to recognise my personal SD card when it comes to moving DL apps/files to it. That's this phone's issue, not yours. Crappy RAZR 907. Any way you can shor
