[prMac.com] London, United Kingdom - The rising popularity of Twitter, Identi.ca and FaceBook means that the usage of URL shortening services is also on the increase, but they're not always easy to use on your iPhone. Does your favourite Twitter client support your preferred URL shortening service? Are the links associated to your account where the service supports it? Are their websites MobileSafari friendly? Typically the answer is no.
Enter www.cut. www.cut - we like to pronounce it "dub cut" - is optimised for the iPhone and iPod touch and is designed to make the task as quick and easy as possible. It is so simple to use that it can shorten a URL without you pressing a single button! Launch www.cut and if it finds a URL on the clipboard will immediately shorten it for you and place it back on the clipboard. Naturally it supports all the major URL shortening services - is.gd, bit.ly, cli.gs, tr.im, to.ly and tinyurl - and, where they allow it, records the link in your account.
iPhone and iPod touch 3.0 or later
www.cut version 1.0 is available immediately on iPhone and iPod touch with iPhone OS 3.0 and later. It is free and is downloadable only on the iTunes App Store.
