    Current version: 1.2
    Price: Free

    Brief summary:
    Snippety Snip is a NimbleKit based app that allows you to shorten or "snip" your long url's right on your iphone or ipod touch to use it with any app or website later.​

    I - How to use it:
    The interface of Snippety Snip is very simple and intuitive so it makes it VERY easy to use. All you have at the beginning is a simple text field and a "Shorten" button. This button could be a little bigger as most of the screen is empty.

    Paste or type in your url in the textfield and tap "Shorten", or shake your device and see what happense

    A popup then appears with the three shortening services available:
    • tr.im
    • is.gd
    • tinyurl

    Select the one you want and wait for the success popup to appear and click ok!

    Now you can either send it in an email, open it in safari or copy it to the clipboard ( this last one has to be done manually...

    II - Conclusions:

    Pros:
    • Very easy to use
    • Ability to chose between different services
    • the price (FREE)

    Cons:
    • Inability to directly copy the text to clipboard without manually doing it.
    • Not enough services. (my opinion

    Nice review. Might as well download it while it's free. Maybe the devs will make a "copy to clipboard" button/feature.

    /edit: Scratch that. It's 1.19$ now.

    Good review, although I don't see much use for this application.

    It's not hard to do the same thing via Safari.

    Thanks for the good review.

    Either way, in my opinion, why have an app to shorten the URL? I see no point.

    well, with this one, you dont have to go to the website to shorten your url. For exemple, depending on which url shortening service you want to use, you'll have to go on different websites, with this, you can select between more than one at once (even though they all basically do the same thing......)
