BITLY SPIES ON YOUR CLIPBOARD
by ZachAndo on 2020/10/11 22:15
Ever notice how whenever you open BITLY, they immediately grab the content from your clipboard. Yep it’s happening. What are you doing with that data BITLY?

Cannot sign on
by Cannot sign on on 2020/04/24 19:56
I am unable to Sign up for this app. No matter what combination my wife or I use, it always gives the error or “ user name must be between 4 am 16 letters and numbers”
Suddenly and for no reason, all my Bitly stopped working.
by AHSLU on 2020/02/13 02:34
1 year everything worked great. 140+ just stopped working. I can’t use any that I’ve created and this is the ONLY way your support team can be reached. The website chat only responds to business emails. So what do I do now??? Start all over from scratch with a competitor??? Wish I didn’t have to. But there’s no one to answer my questions.
won’t let me delete links

Very happy
by SWCA MnA on 2020/01/11 02:46
Very happy to have this app. Fast intuitive and much more professional not to have a mile long link for insta and various other things. Appreciate that it lists them out and gives some stats! Well done!
Limited to 25 links?
by moza mini mi on 2020/01/07 21:13
I have the free version, is there a 25 link limit?
Wish I could Give 0 Stars
by GrimDivine on 2020/01/07 20:59
The site itself is great. The app doesn’t work at all. You can’t customize the back end of your URL’s. You can’t see the the bitlink that you created on the app at all. Then the site also won’t let you edit the back end when you sign on on the web. It’s horrible. But the link it auto copies will work. But you can’t see any analytics or anything for it because it simply doesn’t show up on the app. To access it on the website you have to click on it yourself a few times and then go to top links. That’s down right ridiculous. I just deleted it. I’ll just do my links online.

Two stars because it works
by A.Cheree on 2019/10/22 11:25
Yes it will shorten your links but the internet looks at it as a spam link. I have a mobile phone app and it won’t even allow the link to be sent thru text. I placed it on my Facebook & fb shut my ad down saying I was using spam as a link. Not good. For that reason I’ll be finding another shortener to use.
Good app
by antoneyjohn678 on 2019/09/09 16:06
Good application for use to shorten link used to easy and simple way.
Thanks for reading my Review
by Triptoodubai on 2019/09/08 02:47
I really like this app but I feel like the mobile app should me more like the desktop version of bit.ly the graphs analytics is very useful please add it to the app. I know you guys can do this with just a simple update.
No facebook authentication allowed
by RussG11 on 2019/05/19 16:05
I tried downloading on 2 devices now. Cannot log in with facebook, which is where I have all my links connected to. Spits back “Facebook Authentication Failed” without even opening up the app. It’s immediate. Fix this.
Can’t sign in with Facebook
by Jay Nisbett on 2019/05/06 02:43
My account is linked to Facebook and the app won’t let you sign in with Facebook.... very frustrating
You can’t edit previous URLs?
by Shawn Bishop on 2019/05/02 19:35
Hmmmm .... Isn’t that a common need of literally the core feature?
I love Bitly!
by Bitly Fan on 2019/02/11 21:04
Amazing product that all should use!
Great product and easy to use!
by MMAL8859 on 2019/02/11 21:03
I’ve always used Bitly to shorten my links, and now with the App, I can easily shorten links and see the metrics behind them. Product works just like the desktop version but way more convenient!
I love Bitly!
by Phicks732 on 2019/02/11 21:03
This platform is fantastic! I can easily shorten my links for any marketing campaign I am looking to run. I am going to start using Bitly links for SMS too!
Super convenient
by matt7456 on 2019/02/11 21:02
Helps me keep links handy, I can copy and paste them into other apps with a few taps. Nice to know how many clicks they have, too.
Amazing!
by markjosephson on 2019/02/11 21:01
Love Bitly and better links. This app and plugin makes it easy to create links from any App.
On the go links
by Emily75431 on 2018/09/11 16:21
Love the app! It makes it so much easier for me to share links and get live data while I’m not by my computer. Definitely recommend it for all Bitly users.
PRETTY TERRIBLE
by MDWDesigns on 2018/08/26 00:11
For a little while it worked just fine, but then suddenly all future links I attempted to shorten, we not acknowledged as working links and were not “valid” None worked. I tried to delete and reinstall, and yes, I’m up to date.
Links won’t shorten on app
by NickLaparra on 2018/07/30 16:32
I’ve tried so many times t shorten links in the mobile app and it never works anymore. It used to buy hasn’t for the past 6 months or so. Shortening links is literally the only purpose of this app. 👎🏽
Revisión a la app
by soy Jerry on 2018/06/25 20:59
En el último mes he tenido dificultades para modificar el “short link” debido a que marca un error en la “Bitlink information”. Deberían checar este error ya que por este insignificante detalle se califique mal a esta aplicación que es muy buena. Saludos
Buggy lately
by ColoradoBirdGal on 2018/06/14 10:29
This app used to work like a charm. For the past month when I create a new short link the app states “cannot retrieve link information” every time.
Former Go -To ... Now Failed
by AJBOheneba on 2018/06/05 18:55
Used to be great for creating & tracking my shortlinks on the fly .. now “cant connect to server???” ... delete
No more customization
by sjamesbradley on 2018/05/21 02:14
I used to be able to create custom bitlinks, but it appears that option is gone.
Thank you reviewers
by TreoRenegade on 2018/04/23 15:18
4.23.2018: Lotsa luck getting this thing to work. I gave up, successfully searching for a replacement. Short Menu. In-app $1.99 gets ya bit.ly and others. Login via Safari to your Bitly account. Then set it up fussFree in Quick Menu, and you're good to go from that point on. Use Quick Short in lower area of Share Sheet. All of the joy of the bit.ly service without its woeful crap app. Gave Short Menu a steady workout over 2 hours - never failed. Prior: Given recent games played by TextExpander, EverNote and CloudMagic, I turned off global auto updates. Leaves me unscathed when developers remove features per an update. Looks like it's time to sunset my reliance on this service as well. Thanks reviewers!
Account seriously?
by thehayn1 on 2018/03/15 00:11
Brett Snodgrass obviously works for Bitly bahahahaha
I have a special folder for apps like this...
by OldStPete on 2018/01/23 19:15
It’s called INACTIVES. All I needed was an app to shrink long URLs with one copy & paste. Yours seems to do everything but that. Adios!
F*** you Bit.ly
by Buttslover69 on 2017/12/06 12:43
All of my Bit.ly links were blocked by Bit.ly. Every link I have posted to twitter now doesn’t work. I’ve lost over a month of revenue and will now have a serious reduction in residual revenue because of you jerks. F*** you.
Can’t Pass Go
by TheSalesScientist on 2017/11/29 22:04
I used to love this app years ago. Now that I have to creat an account I’m not able to get in. I keep getting a message that the usernames I’ve attempted to use are already being used.
Does The Trick
by thegirlkyle on 2017/11/28 20:01
I was honestly surprised to see such a low rating as I've never had an issue before. Shortening links and tracking analytics has always worked perfectly for me!
Failed to Connect to Server
by yyy888 on 2017/11/28 03:44
Just downloaded the app and now I'm forced to sign up although I don't know why. Yet another login I have to keep track of or not. So I try to sign up. Now I get "Failed to Connect to Server" error. So I can't even sign up. What a waste of time. Deleted.
Not feature complete
by Webguynj on 2017/10/17 22:28
While I can see my links and I can copy paste, I should be able to share to bit.ly from browser apps and anywhere I have a url.
Requires an account?!?!
by Rockyrocks6 on 2017/07/26 01:36
Why do I need an account to shorten links???
bad
by aceyago on 2017/07/11 00:31
it doesn't work
Terrible. Will not respond
by Bbrnyc on 2017/06/27 10:48
Keep crashing and signing me out. Then stops responding
Share Extension...
by apriendeau on 2017/06/08 19:37
Is what makes this much better then the past app and the metrics are so good!
Don't care about stats...
by sschvytrk on 2017/06/03 17:59
I am still looking for a hassle-free interface with no login and no fluff to shorten URLs. This does not fit the bill.
No good.
by AmazingRobie on 2017/05/29 14:21
Website works fine. App not at all. Cant create account OR login. Its unfortunate because Bitly is such a useful tool on regular computer. Will try other link shorteners now, since this one doesnt work. If i find one that works better than bitly, i will probably use them on desktop as well. Goodbye bitly. ☹️
Can't log in
by trishgp on 2017/05/04 13:04
Just downloaded the app and tried to login several ways (Facebook, reset password, used another account's credentials) and it won't let me. My login credentials are correct too. Also tried signing up, stuck at login/signup screen.
Does exactly what it needs to do
by Peterpopmr on 2017/04/20 22:12
This app is pretty much exactly like the website, just on a phone. It does everything it needs to do correctly. I have one feature to recommend though: they should add a feature where you'll get a notification or a sound of something everytime somebody uses one of your links in real time. I think that'd be pretty cool. Great app!
What a great tool!
by @AZMike25 on 2017/03/29 11:16
I use this many times a day to send shortened URL's to Twitter, Facebook, emails, and texts. All you do is open bitly after you copy a long URL push the + button and add your URL and bitly auto copies it, just go about your business of what you were doing and paste it wherever you like. If you want to retrieve any of the URL's you shortened, just go back to the bitly app and copy it again. This is brilliant! Really great for Twitter where every digit counts. Highly recommended!
No instructions
by SaabSister on 2017/03/23 17:56
I use Bitly on my desktop and it works perfectly. Have no idea how to use it in iPad. When I have a link on my browser that I want to shorten, there's no way to highlight it and click on Bitly. The app is on the desktop covered by the browser. Would be nice to have information on how to use it.
Just crashes
by Thrade on 2017/03/10 17:30
Can't sign in. Every time I hit sign in the app just completely crashes. I've tried reinstalling and restarting my phone. Just doesn't work.
App crashes every time since update
by kingsfan33 on 2017/03/10 09:02
SInce the 2.3.0 update, when trying to open the app, it immediately tosses you back to your Home screen.
not dependable
by RJeep02 on 2017/03/08 15:17
sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't.
Facebook Login isn't working after update
by adventureswithnienie on 2017/02/11 06:24
Fix the update!
Yeah. This app is broken, especially the stats reporting
by infin8dvonE on 2016/12/22 04:13
Updated review. This app is still crap at reporting stats for shorten links. Stats are never recent and timely. Shortening links is great but when you want to go back check on how your shared link have done, that is where you find the missing holes of why poor sorting and no sorting by time span, no maps view, and no site previews :( which were basics of the original. Too bad google link shortening site does a better job but so clunky to use.
Annoying popup when launched
by edgar_is on 2016/10/20 19:23
I use this app to keep up with the number of times my link has been clicked. It does a decent job at this but the annoying thing is that it opens a new link popup any time I open the app while I have a link copied on my clipboard. I looked for a way to disable this feature but I can't find it in settings.
So convenient and easy to use
by rajastunes on 2016/10/07 19:33
Shortening links via the App is extremely convenient. Just copy the link and it's easy to shorten in the app. Now go, shorten links, buy a branded domain, and visualize your links with custom keywords!!
A dream come true+++
by elbsap2 on 2016/10/06 16:05
Best app ever!
Most used app on my phone
by Peetypete2012 on 2016/10/06 16:04
I share stories and stuff with my friends all day long. I love being able to highlight a link, and have native option to shorten with Bitly. Not only does it copy to my clipboard but saves it for later if I don't have time to share. Pro tip: get to see how many clicks you got by opening up the App
This update does not work
by Mathiasian103 on 2016/10/06 04:49
Before I updated the app worked great. Now it doesn't work at all. I tried everything. Nothing works, and it is awful because I used it all the time, and now I can't use it at all. If you like the way it worked before don't upgrade. It does not work.
Previous version was much better
by Schuplov on 2016/10/02 11:41
This version can't see copied unshorted links automatically, like previous version.
Worst interface ever
by Lonely faizan on 2016/10/01 07:38
You guys totally ruined the app. Worst design I have ever seen in my life 👎🏻👎🏻👎🏻👎🏻
Not Working Since Update
by deborahln on 2016/09/29 18:48
"Can't connect to server" Useless now. Please fix!
Loving the new streamlined experience!
by jpc1125 on 2016/09/23 19:29
This app update is fantastic. Easier than ever to use!
Beautiful useless app
by Alexthearmo on 2016/09/23 02:09
The new update makes bit.ly practically useless. Now all you can do is shorten a link and copy. Stats are near useless. No other features. You guys are really making your service bad and soon you'll have no customers. Redesign looks pretty but has crippled functionality (on Web as well)
Great for those who hate reporting
by Christian_Hunter on 2016/09/21 12:06
The latest version of bit.ly took an already anorexic amount of data reporting on short links and reduced it to near zero. A real coup for those who hate reporting. So over bit.ly, and so frustrated that I have 5 years of legacy short link data invested in them!
New Version Not As Good As The Previous
by AppLoverguy on 2016/09/15 17:13
The previous version would automatically recognize a copied link and prompt you with a question to bitly it. Additionally, it then within the same screen, would allow one to customize the bit.ly. In this new version they have removed all of that awesome functionality and made it twice as laborous to save and custom name a bit.ly. Why?
It's arrived!
by fueledbytoddler on 2016/09/14 21:04
So happy I can finally shorten all those crazy long FB, news, Pinterest, blog links. No one likes there whole screen taken up by a link texted. It's finally here! Great app.
New app is amazing!!
by Sugar shane3 on 2016/09/13 01:55
Awesome update! One of my most used apps. Super user friendly and easy to use. Great work Bitly!
Nice new logo. Now about that #UXfail...
by BeenThereDoneThatGoneHome on 2016/09/13 01:10
Swanky new logo on this new version. Too bad nobody tried any basic user testing on the new design. Good luck trying to create a new link or copy the shortened url on an existing link. #UXfail
Solid re-design
by SkyFiGuy on 2016/09/12 16:42
Long overdue. Working well for me. Decently fast. Had trouble setting up a Bit.ly account (issue on bit.ly's end, not mine). I connected my Twitter instead and have had a good experience. Reminds me of re-visiting an old friend who got a makeover that I haven't seen since 2008. The new branding icon looks neat as well. It's nice to see they're moving past their roots. Interesting that they released this redesign on 9/11. They are headquartered in NYC, so the homage is quite appropriate.
finally !! 😭😭😭
by wldkifan on 2016/09/12 07:54
finally !! 😭😭😭
Update, update, update!
by zhuchok on 2016/09/01 00:08
The post-retirement age of this app is one of the key reasons that I stay away from Bit.ly altogether and use another (paid) service instead. Every year I check Bit.ly progress and decide whether I stay or go. This time, I was done and gone in two hours--to a large degree, thanks to this old app. I would even be happy to pay a few dollars for an updated Bit.ly app, one that would fully integrate with my iPhone's shortcut menu and give me the kind of convenience and at-a-glance stats that I get from my Droplr app. Come on, Bit.ly, your service is great and the free Let's Encrypt SSL certs for custom links are fantastic, but your app is OLD. Please update it. Also, while you are at it, please consider adding a fully functional desktop app. Thank you!
Please Update the App!
by Blakers2013 on 2016/07/22 18:13
I love using bit.ly as a simple tracker for links I share. However, the app hasn't been updated in years. It has a lot of bugs and is extremely frustrating to use.
Update Please
by Shan Bae on 2016/07/19 18:41
I really like this service because it gives me insight I would have otherwise never seen. I had trouble logging in and I am certain I was using the right login but it only worked once I changed my password. Also it has been well over two years since an app update and there are things that are on the website I would like to have access to.
Needs iPad support
by MrSteveee on 2016/05/19 16:25
This app gets the job done, but seems like they forgot to make it a universal app for the iPad. :-(
WtH?
by wmdaily on 2016/04/25 01:58
This app has been working great for a long time but now it logs me out when I try to add a new link.
Simple and well designed
by Danhcross on 2016/04/22 03:07
Great way to share without long links. Works great with social media.
Crash on iPhone 6
by +Chachacha+ on 2016/03/17 01:00
Tried many times to log in with twitter. Crashes every single time. Disappointing...
Sweet! ...oh. Nevermind.
by N'aw on 2016/02/23 01:44
Awesome! Now I ca just fire up an app instead of using the website all the time! Oh, I have to sign up with no possibility to use the app without doing so for some bizarre reason. Never mind. Deleted.
Add bitly to Share menu
by jonathan from the okc on 2016/01/30 15:23
Great, but it'd be even better if you added an action in the share menu so I could get a bitly link right from the page in Safari.
No update since 2014??
by SunShineFighters on 2015/12/24 20:37
Man... You guys really need to update this app. It's been a year since the last update... I can't see where the clicks come from like I can on the web. This app blows. I rather just go to the website rather than use the app. Is Bitly still operating?? Or is it out of business?
No more bundles?! Say it ain't so!
by JustinRez on 2015/12/11 02:39
Sharing bundles (or lists) of links via a public short-link is one of my dreams. It seems to be almost impossible to do these days. This Bitly app seems to think that Bundles are still a thing...having not been updated at all in 2015. Bitly has apparently transitioned Bundles to 'tags' - which can't be shared - Yet they haven't informed this app of the change. Creating a bundle just gives an error. Smart!
Lots of potential
by Shoeslace on 2015/11/27 16:08
The desktop version is great. The app has potential but ridden with bugs it's hard to use & login via social media sites.
Doesn't Search For Old Links
by MrJeffreyGee on 2015/10/18 00:04
This app doesn't seem to search for old links even though they have been tagged or there's something in the notes section, which pretty much renders the search function to be worthless if you've got a lot of links. Please fix this. ⭐️👎🏻
Um, iPad app?
by Prophotodx on 2015/10/03 21:51
It's almost 2016, no iPad app? WTH?
Needs to be updated
by pcdsim on 2015/09/17 15:43
It's 2015, time to support 6 & 6 Plus, iPads, Share button / Safari support. Time to get with the times.
Cannot Create Links in the Bitly App?
by Franz Schneider on 2015/08/28 19:42
I paste a link to create shortened one and—endless spinning wheel. This renders the app virtually useless. Please fix.
Won't let me sign up?
by KittyMoonChild on 2015/08/04 06:31
Don't want to connect with fb or twitter because I have multiple accounts. App won't let me sign up. Fix please.
App useless without tags
by Only nickname that's not taken on 2015/07/28 15:00
I've loved using bit.ly for years, but then you switched from bundles to tags and the app doesn't work. Seriously, it's been 6+ months and you haven't updated the app? (Once basic functionality is back, a feature request: search twitter users and hashtags so I can post directly from the app...)
Good, but no iPad version?
by Saavedro on 2015/07/18 14:26
I use this all the time but am baffled why there is no iPad version
iPhone 6 screen support
by Xav6455 on 2015/07/16 15:20
Can you please optimize this for the newer larger screen iPhones?
Add tags please
by Tesstimoan on 2015/07/11 14:26
I really appreciate the Bitly mobile app, but now that you've done away with bundles and added tags, it's time to update the app!!
A little bloody support?
by Side Eye from On High on 2015/06/25 02:21
iPhone 5s Bitly app has crashed numerous times in past few weeks when I try to log in with my fb app. Bitly pulls in FB...but then just spins its wheel. Uninstalled 3 times w/same result. Clicked "App Support" link above, and surprise the link is dead. Nice. I'd rather not rely on my desktop.

This is an excellent app; checkout my links
by PathMax on 2015/04/08 04:50
Greetings, Brett Snodgrass here to tell you that this bitly app is excellent. I wish there was a bookmark app so when I am using safari I can just click it and it's bookmarked along with predetermined tags or tags selected from the page. I have several "rate my healthcare provider" websites as well as medical references. Today I rated my doctor, specifically I rated my psychiatrist Dr. Stamati at the website DrSocial dot org. Checkout my bit links; its great that this is free; I wish Diigo would be free also; they could fund the website with investors and ads like facebook. Paying for social media resources and bookmarking apps doesn't often make sense.
Can't log in.
by aetherius26 on 2015/04/04 11:50
App was working fine and now every time I try to log in using Twitter I get an error message saying something about an error 500.
APP IS CRASHING! PLEASE FIX!
by Httyd_HiccstridLover on 2015/03/22 16:08
I can't log in because it keeps on crashing!
Still not optimized for iPad
by appfetish on 2015/03/22 03:16
Earlier review: Loving bitly on my desktop for its trackability. Now I can see which article links are most popular with this writer's audience. Mobile app is helpful, too, but need iPad compatibility for my second go-to business tool.
Life on the Web w/out Bit.ly? Nope!!!
by atis53echo on 2015/02/19 18:33
NO better way to save space in all manner of communications involving the sharing of URLs! Period. I use it to track which URL references are actually followed & which are largely ignored. Bit.ly really helps manage relevancy in digital communication! As an app in general, superb! I have NEVER experienced a crash or lost my data. It's smooth, simple & intuitive. EXACTLY how an app interface should be! Force me to suggest a glitch, flaw or shortcoming...? Hmmm Okay. Fair enough. 1) The floating 'Edit' button placement seems a bit random. Occasionally it is right atop the 'Copy' button. HOWEVER, it doesn't "block" click-access to the copy action! Honestly, it can probably be controlled/made stationary. I just haven't bothered looking for the setting. Bit.ly is THAT simple, regardless. 2) Even though I often forget to click 'Done' before I copy and return to my messages, I'd love it if Bit.ly offered to create a new "bit mark" when I return to the app. It could simply ask me if "I want to save the currently-open event & start a new one." That's it! Minor issues to say the least!
No iPhone 6/6plus compatibility
by 247Triggerhappy on 2015/01/26 09:22
The app lacks compatibility with the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 plus Zoomed app doesn't look good Please UPDATE
Needs some tweaks

Nice app but it would be better if they updated it for iPhone 6/6+. There are too many steps to get a link shortened. It would be nice if you could click an icon from the iPhone sharing menu that would shorten and copy to clipboard for quick pasting or something...
The iPhone 6 was released three months ago
by Al Kyder on 2014/12/30 02:56
And you still haven't made this iPhone 6 compatible? C'mon.
Didn't even download correctly
by VineyardLove on 2014/11/14 11:50
So the App Store thinks this is on my phone BUT it is not! Is it the App or The Store? Who knows but seems that lots are having probs. I'm going to the google shortener instead - sorry, I wanted you but apparently it's just not meant to be!
Buggy lately

This app used to work like a charm. For the past month when I create a new short link the app states “cannot retrieve link information” every time.
Wish I could Give 0 Stars
by GrimDivine on 2020/01/07 20:59
The site itself is great. The app doesn’t work at all. You can’t customize the back end of your URL’s. You can’t see the the bitlink that you created on the app at all. Then the site also won’t let you edit the back end when you sign on on the web. It’s horrible. But the link it auto copies will work. But you can’t see any analytics or anything for it because it simply doesn’t show up on the app. To access it on the website you have to click on it yourself a few times and then go to top links. That’s down right ridiculous. I just deleted it. I’ll just do my links online.
Hilton universal Studios Los Angeles,

Wonderful hotel, Thanks Front Desk Manager Kevin, and Team membersTori, Brenda, Victoria, Virginia, in the Pool everyone’s did a great Job, excellent customer services and the view to the hotel near to Universal Studios and the City View is spectacular, to get up in the morning and see up to the falcon it’s beautiful experience to the tourist and visitors to the Universal Studios Hilton. It’s the best hotel in Los Angeles. Thanks for the great experience, definitely I be back.
Great product and easy to use!
by MMAL8859 on 2019/02/11 21:03
I’ve always used Bitly to shorten my links, and now with the App, I can easily shorten links and see the metrics behind them. Product works just like the desktop version but way more convenient!
Very happy
by SWCA MnA on 2020/01/11 02:46
Very happy to have this app. Fast intuitive and much more professional not to have a mile long link for insta and various other things. Appreciate that it lists them out and gives some stats! Well done!
Does The Trick

Two stars because it works
by A.Cheree on 2019/10/22 11:25
Yes it will shorten your links but the internet looks at it as a spam link. I have a mobile phone app and it won’t even allow the link to be sent thru text. I placed it on my Facebook & fb shut my ad down saying I was using spam as a link. Not good. For that reason I’ll be finding another shortener to use.
Suddenly and for no reason, all my Bitly stopped working.
by AHSLU on 2020/02/13 02:34
1 year everything worked great. 140+ just stopped working. I can’t use any that I’ve created and this is the ONLY way your support team can be reached. The website chat only responds to business emails. So what do I do now??? Start all over from scratch with a competitor??? Wish I didn’t have to. But there’s no one to answer my questions.
Super convenient

iPad compatibility ASAP, please!
by IQMatthew on 2013/02/07 00:20
Feb. 6, 2013: I was very excited to see that there was an update to the Bitly app, which included a new logo. I also assumed that the update would include an iPad version that would enable me to use the app without having to change screen orientation or switch from the iPad keyboard to the iPhone keyboard. Alas, Bitly remains optimized for iPhone, and hence remains a pain to use on the iPad. I have downgraded my recent 4-star rating to three stars for THIS REASON AND THIS ALONE. This is what I wrote in my last review of this app, under the title 'Functional, but release an iPad version already!' 'This app works fine, but I am constantly annoyed at having the screen change orientation on my tablet when I use this program because this is iPhone software. 'Otherwise, I have no complaints.'

This is an excellent app; checkout my links
by PathMax on 2015/04/08 04:50
Greetings, Brett Snodgrass here to tell you that this bitly app is excellent. I wish there was a bookmark app so when I am using safari I can just click it and it's bookmarked along with predetermined tags or tags selected from the page. I have several "rate my healthcare provider" websites as well as medical references. Today I rated my doctor, specifically I rated my psychiatrist Dr. Stamati at the website DrSocial dot org. Checkout my bit links; its great that this is free; I wish Diigo would be free also; they could fund the website with investors and ads like facebook. Paying for social media resources and bookmarking apps doesn't often make sense.
Seriously Flawed App - Crashes & Can't Login
by tsd707 on 2014/07/21 15:57
While I very much enjoy using the bitly service for shortening web links, this is essentially impossible now with the mobile app that is now completely unstable & unusable. If you can manage to log in (now nearly impossible except on the webpage), the app won't pick up your current bitlinks as it used to and if you try to add or remove a link to a bundle, chances are pretty high that the app will completely crash. Up until today, I had no problems logging into my bitly account via the app, but now that it immediately logs you out as soon as you attempt to do so, the app is just a waste of time & memory space. My advice: if you use bitly, stick to the webpage & don't waste your time being frustrated trying to use this broken app.

Incredibly Convenient Bitly
by ClutterDesk on 2013/04/24 11:51
I'm an Internet marketing director and tend to read a large amount of articles throughout each and every day. I find it beneficial to share many of those articles with my team. With one tap on the URL from my iPhone or iPad and then one tap on the Bitly icon the article and URL are conveniently saved in my Bitly acct and I can then later go back and share the tidy/shortened URL or just read it at a later and more convenient time. I wouldn't be able to function quite the same without it, moving forward. Thanks Bitly!
What a great tool!
by @AZMike25 on 2017/03/29 11:16
I use this many times a day to send shortened URL's to Twitter, Facebook, emails, and texts. All you do is open bitly after you copy a long URL push the + button and add your URL and bitly auto copies it, just go about your business of what you were doing and paste it wherever you like. If you want to retrieve any of the URL's you shortened, just go back to the bitly app and copy it again. This is brilliant! Really great for Twitter where every digit counts. Highly recommended!
Mobile app frustrating & makes it hard to use for work
by Reviewr100 on 2012/12/23 22:24
I work at a company where bit-ly use is heavy. The most frustrating thing when I am trying ti get a bitly to post to Twitter is when it tells me "Oops...looks like you already saved that link" and then it becomes impossible to find the link it told you was already saved thru a search and I am hardly going to page thru screen after screen on an iPhone hoping I find it. (Given how frustrating that us, the Bitly people might consider a less flippant message than "Oops"). When I've tried to go to the full site, I can get an URL but it won't copy. It makes me grind my teeth. Maybe it's time to switch.
Does exactly what it needs to do
by Peterpopmr on 2017/04/20 22:12
This app is pretty much exactly like the website, just on a phone. It does everything it needs to do correctly. I have one feature to recommend though: they should add a feature where you'll get a notification or a sound of something everytime somebody uses one of your links in real time. I think that'd be pretty cool. Great app!
Update Please
by Shan Bae on 2016/07/19 18:41
I really like this service because it gives me insight I would have otherwise never seen. I had trouble logging in and I am certain I was using the right login but it only worked once I changed my password. Also it has been well over two years since an app update and there are things that are on the website I would like to have access to.
Most used app on my phone
by Peetypete2012 on 2016/10/06 16:04
I share stories and stuff with my friends all day long. I love being able to highlight a link, and have native option to shorten with Bitly. Not only does it copy to my clipboard but saves it for later if I don't have time to share. Pro tip: get to see how many clicks you got by opening up the App
Annoying popup when launched
by edgar_is on 2016/10/20 19:23
I use this app to keep up with the number of times my link has been clicked. It does a decent job at this but the annoying thing is that it opens a new link popup any time I open the app while I have a link copied on my clipboard. I looked for a way to disable this feature but I can't find it in settings.
Must Have For Journalists and Social Media Lovers
by julianbean on 2012/12/20 14:53
I never, ever write reviews so you know that this app is special. The functionality is great. There is a lot of power packed into this easy to use design. The integration with the web version of the service makes for great synchronization and the ease of working seamlessly across platforms.
Religious Web Browsing ...
by iGdobbs on 2013/02/03 01:46
This app helps handle the task of organizing links you'd like to save into organized online files. Bundle them into into groups and watch the links you share in the stats page get traction! Keep your web browsing simple and use this app religiously!!!
Yeah. This app is broken, especially the stats reporting
by infin8dvonE on 2016/12/22 04:13
Updated review. This app is still crap at reporting stats for shorten links. Stats are never recent and timely. Shortening links is great but when you want to go back check on how your shared link have done, that is where you find the missing holes of why poor sorting and no sorting by time span, no maps view, and no site previews :( which were basics of the original. Too bad google link shortening site does a better job but so clunky to use.
Great for a beginning digital media marketer or analyst
by Dimes_only on 2013/02/18 01:28
It's a great way to learn about data analytics and an adorable tool to brand your links. Not to mention that eventually if you were to launch your own website and create your own short link, it's positioned to do so.
Great but make iPad friendly
by Lacrumpet on 2014/06/25 22:18
It's time to make this app iPad-friendly! Need to be able to view horizontally. Lost one more star...why? Because my links keep disappearing one by one! I search for my saved links, and they are gone?! I can only get them when I log into the desktop site. Frustrating!! I use Bitly multiple times a day!!
Super helpful
by Jgdnyc2009 on 2013/05/26 00:38
Creates tiny links from long urls. Keeps track of link stuff you like and want to return to. Pushes out links to social networks (if you want). Also will tell you how many times your links have been clicked.
Used to be great, but no more
by Kitten Litter on 2014/05/06 13:52
The Bitly app used to work great for shortening links using my personalized URL. Unfortunately, the update has ruined the experience. Pasting a link to the app often causes it to freeze. And when tweeting my links, they're shared without the titles. I'd like to revert to the previous, already-perfect version, and would even pay for it. As it is now, Bitly isn't doing what it's supposed to or what it used to do flawlessly. This update was not progress.
Doesn't work if you have a lot of bookmarks
by cropwithyourfeet on 2012/09/20 23:26
I use my bitly account to wrap urls in a couple of apps with their API, so I have a large number of links in my account. When I launch this app, it downloads 10k shortened URLs and then it just gets stuck. I've deleted the app and tried twice and same thing. I don't know if 10k is necessary. I actually just want to grab the last shortened link (because I couldn't get it from the website in iOS Safari) and to shorten new ones.

4.23.2018: Lotsa luck getting this thing to work. I gave up, successfully searching for a replacement. Short Menu. In-app $1.99 gets ya bit.ly and others. Login via Safari to your Bitly account. Then set it up fussFree in Quick Menu, and you're good to go from that point on. Use Quick Short in lower area of Share Sheet. All of the joy of the bit.ly service without its woeful crap app. Gave Short Menu a steady workout over 2 hours - never failed. Prior: Given recent games played by TextExpander, EverNote and CloudMagic, I turned off global auto updates. Leaves me unscathed when developers remove features per an update. Looks like it's time to sunset my reliance on this service as well. Thanks reviewers!

I used to love this app years ago. Now that I have to creat an account I’m not able to get in. I keep getting a message that the usernames I’ve attempted to use are already being used.
Does The Trick
by thegirlkyle on 2017/11/28 20:01
I was honestly surprised to see such a low rating as I've never had an issue before. Shortening links and tracking analytics has always worked perfectly for me!
Failed to Connect to Server
by yyy888 on 2017/11/28 03:44
Just downloaded the app and now I'm forced to sign up although I don't know why. Yet another login I have to keep track of or not. So I try to sign up. Now I get "Failed to Connect to Server" error. So I can't even sign up. What a waste of time. Deleted.
Not feature complete
by Webguynj on 2017/10/17 22:28
While I can see my links and I can copy paste, I should be able to share to bit.ly from browser apps and anywhere I have a url.
Requires an account?!?!
by Rockyrocks6 on 2017/07/26 01:36
Why do I need an account to shorten links???
bad
by aceyago on 2017/07/11 00:31
it doesn't work
Terrible. Will not respond
by Bbrnyc on 2017/06/27 10:48
Keep crashing and signing me out. Then stops responding
Share Extension...
by apriendeau on 2017/06/08 19:37
Is what makes this much better then the past app and the metrics are so good!
Don't care about stats...
by sschvytrk on 2017/06/03 17:59
I am still looking for a hassle-free interface with no login and no fluff to shorten URLs. This does not fit the bill.
No good.
by AmazingRobie on 2017/05/29 14:21
Website works fine. App not at all. Cant create account OR login. Its unfortunate because Bitly is such a useful tool on regular computer. Will try other link shorteners now, since this one doesnt work. If i find one that works better than bitly, i will probably use them on desktop as well. Goodbye bitly. ☹️
Can't log in
by trishgp on 2017/05/04 13:04
Just downloaded the app and tried to login several ways (Facebook, reset password, used another account's credentials) and it won't let me. My login credentials are correct too. Also tried signing up, stuck at login/signup screen.
Does exactly what it needs to do
by Peterpopmr on 2017/04/20 22:12
This app is pretty much exactly like the website, just on a phone. It does everything it needs to do correctly. I have one feature to recommend though: they should add a feature where you'll get a notification or a sound of something everytime somebody uses one of your links in real time. I think that'd be pretty cool. Great app!
What a great tool!
by @AZMike25 on 2017/03/29 11:16
I use this many times a day to send shortened URL's to Twitter, Facebook, emails, and texts. All you do is open bitly after you copy a long URL push the + button and add your URL and bitly auto copies it, just go about your business of what you were doing and paste it wherever you like. If you want to retrieve any of the URL's you shortened, just go back to the bitly app and copy it again. This is brilliant! Really great for Twitter where every digit counts. Highly recommended!
No instructions
by SaabSister on 2017/03/23 17:56
I use Bitly on my desktop and it works perfectly. Have no idea how to use it in iPad. When I have a link on my browser that I want to shorten, there's no way to highlight it and click on Bitly. The app is on the desktop covered by the browser. Would be nice to have information on how to use it.
Just crashes
by Thrade on 2017/03/10 17:30
Can't sign in. Every time I hit sign in the app just completely crashes. I've tried reinstalling and restarting my phone. Just doesn't work.
App crashes every time since update
by kingsfan33 on 2017/03/10 09:02
SInce the 2.3.0 update, when trying to open the app, it immediately tosses you back to your Home screen.
not dependable
by RJeep02 on 2017/03/08 15:17
sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't.
Facebook Login isn't working after update
by adventureswithnienie on 2017/02/11 06:24
Fix the update!
Yeah. This app is broken, especially the stats reporting
by infin8dvonE on 2016/12/22 04:13
Updated review. This app is still crap at reporting stats for shorten links. Stats are never recent and timely. Shortening links is great but when you want to go back check on how your shared link have done, that is where you find the missing holes of why poor sorting and no sorting by time span, no maps view, and no site previews :( which were basics of the original. Too bad google link shortening site does a better job but so clunky to use.
Annoying popup when launched
by edgar_is on 2016/10/20 19:23
I use this app to keep up with the number of times my link has been clicked. It does a decent job at this but the annoying thing is that it opens a new link popup any time I open the app while I have a link copied on my clipboard. I looked for a way to disable this feature but I can't find it in settings.
So convenient and easy to use
by rajastunes on 2016/10/07 19:33
Shortening links via the App is extremely convenient. Just copy the link and it's easy to shorten in the app. Now go, shorten links, buy a branded domain, and visualize your links with custom keywords!!
A dream come true+++
by elbsap2 on 2016/10/06 16:05
Best app ever!
Most used app on my phone
by Peetypete2012 on 2016/10/06 16:04
I share stories and stuff with my friends all day long. I love being able to highlight a link, and have native option to shorten with Bitly. Not only does it copy to my clipboard but saves it for later if I don't have time to share. Pro tip: get to see how many clicks you got by opening up the App
This update does not work
by Mathiasian103 on 2016/10/06 04:49
Before I updated the app worked great. Now it doesn't work at all. I tried everything. Nothing works, and it is awful because I used it all the time, and now I can't use it at all. If you like the way it worked before don't upgrade. It does not work.
Previous version was much better
by Schuplov on 2016/10/02 11:41
This version can't see copied unshorted links automatically, like previous version.
Worst interface ever
by Lonely faizan on 2016/10/01 07:38
You guys totally ruined the app. Worst design I have ever seen in my life 👎🏻👎🏻👎🏻👎🏻
Not Working Since Update
by deborahln on 2016/09/29 18:48
"Can't connect to server" Useless now. Please fix!
Loving the new streamlined experience!
by jpc1125 on 2016/09/23 19:29
This app update is fantastic. Easier than ever to use!
Beautiful useless app
by Alexthearmo on 2016/09/23 02:09
The new update makes bit.ly practically useless. Now all you can do is shorten a link and copy. Stats are near useless. No other features. You guys are really making your service bad and soon you'll have no customers. Redesign looks pretty but has crippled functionality (on Web as well)
Great for those who hate reporting
by Christian_Hunter on 2016/09/21 12:06
The latest version of bit.ly took an already anorexic amount of data reporting on short links and reduced it to near zero. A real coup for those who hate reporting. So over bit.ly, and so frustrated that I have 5 years of legacy short link data invested in them!
New Version Not As Good As The Previous
by AppLoverguy on 2016/09/15 17:13
The previous version would automatically recognize a copied link and prompt you with a question to bitly it. Additionally, it then within the same screen, would allow one to customize the bit.ly. In this new version they have removed all of that awesome functionality and made it twice as laborous to save and custom name a bit.ly. Why?
It's arrived!
by fueledbytoddler on 2016/09/14 21:04
So happy I can finally shorten all those crazy long FB, news, Pinterest, blog links. No one likes there whole screen taken up by a link texted. It's finally here! Great app.
New app is amazing!!
by Sugar shane3 on 2016/09/13 01:55
Awesome update! One of my most used apps. Super user friendly and easy to use. Great work Bitly!
Nice new logo. Now about that #UXfail...
by BeenThereDoneThatGoneHome on 2016/09/13 01:10
Swanky new logo on this new version. Too bad nobody tried any basic user testing on the new design. Good luck trying to create a new link or copy the shortened url on an existing link. #UXfail
Solid re-design
by SkyFiGuy on 2016/09/12 16:42
Long overdue. Working well for me. Decently fast. Had trouble setting up a Bit.ly account (issue on bit.ly's end, not mine). I connected my Twitter instead and have had a good experience. Reminds me of re-visiting an old friend who got a makeover that I haven't seen since 2008. The new branding icon looks neat as well. It's nice to see they're moving past their roots. Interesting that they released this redesign on 9/11. They are headquartered in NYC, so the homage is quite appropriate.
finally !! 😭😭😭
by wldkifan on 2016/09/12 07:54
finally !! 😭😭😭
Update, update, update!
by zhuchok on 2016/09/01 00:08
The post-retirement age of this app is one of the key reasons that I stay away from Bit.ly altogether and use another (paid) service instead. Every year I check Bit.ly progress and decide whether I stay or go. This time, I was done and gone in two hours--to a large degree, thanks to this old app. I would even be happy to pay a few dollars for an updated Bit.ly app, one that would fully integrate with my iPhone's shortcut menu and give me the kind of convenience and at-a-glance stats that I get from my Droplr app. Come on, Bit.ly, your service is great and the free Let's Encrypt SSL certs for custom links are fantastic, but your app is OLD. Please update it. Also, while you are at it, please consider adding a fully functional desktop app. Thank you!
Please Update the App!
by Blakers2013 on 2016/07/22 18:13
I love using bit.ly as a simple tracker for links I share. However, the app hasn't been updated in years. It has a lot of bugs and is extremely frustrating to use.
Update Please
by Shan Bae on 2016/07/19 18:41
I really like this service because it gives me insight I would have otherwise never seen. I had trouble logging in and I am certain I was using the right login but it only worked once I changed my password. Also it has been well over two years since an app update and there are things that are on the website I would like to have access to.
Needs iPad support
by MrSteveee on 2016/05/19 16:25
This app gets the job done, but seems like they forgot to make it a universal app for the iPad. :-(
WtH?
by wmdaily on 2016/04/25 01:58
This app has been working great for a long time but now it logs me out when I try to add a new link.
Simple and well designed
by Danhcross on 2016/04/22 03:07
Great way to share without long links. Works great with social media.
Crash on iPhone 6
by +Chachacha+ on 2016/03/17 01:00
Tried many times to log in with twitter. Crashes every single time. Disappointing...
Sweet! ...oh. Nevermind.
by N'aw on 2016/02/23 01:44
Awesome! Now I ca just fire up an app instead of using the website all the time! Oh, I have to sign up with no possibility to use the app without doing so for some bizarre reason. Never mind. Deleted.
Add bitly to Share menu
by jonathan from the okc on 2016/01/30 15:23
Great, but it'd be even better if you added an action in the share menu so I could get a bitly link right from the page in Safari.
No update since 2014??
by SunShineFighters on 2015/12/24 20:37
Man... You guys really need to update this app. It's been a year since the last update... I can't see where the clicks come from like I can on the web. This app blows. I rather just go to the website rather than use the app. Is Bitly still operating?? Or is it out of business?
No more bundles?! Say it ain't so!
by JustinRez on 2015/12/11 02:39
Sharing bundles (or lists) of links via a public short-link is one of my dreams. It seems to be almost impossible to do these days. This Bitly app seems to think that Bundles are still a thing...having not been updated at all in 2015. Bitly has apparently transitioned Bundles to 'tags' - which can't be shared - Yet they haven't informed this app of the change. Creating a bundle just gives an error. Smart!
Lots of potential
by Shoeslace on 2015/11/27 16:08
The desktop version is great. The app has potential but ridden with bugs it's hard to use & login via social media sites.
Doesn't Search For Old Links
by MrJeffreyGee on 2015/10/18 00:04
This app doesn't seem to search for old links even though they have been tagged or there's something in the notes section, which pretty much renders the search function to be worthless if you've got a lot of links. Please fix this. ⭐️👎🏻
Um, iPad app?
by Prophotodx on 2015/10/03 21:51
It's almost 2016, no iPad app? WTH?
Needs to be updated
by pcdsim on 2015/09/17 15:43
It's 2015, time to support 6 & 6 Plus, iPads, Share button / Safari support. Time to get with the times.
Cannot Create Links in the Bitly App?
by Franz Schneider on 2015/08/28 19:42
I paste a link to create shortened one and—endless spinning wheel. This renders the app virtually useless. Please fix.
Won't let me sign up?
by KittyMoonChild on 2015/08/04 06:31
Don't want to connect with fb or twitter because I have multiple accounts. App won't let me sign up. Fix please.
App useless without tags
by Only nickname that's not taken on 2015/07/28 15:00
I've loved using bit.ly for years, but then you switched from bundles to tags and the app doesn't work. Seriously, it's been 6+ months and you haven't updated the app? (Once basic functionality is back, a feature request: search twitter users and hashtags so I can post directly from the app...)
Good, but no iPad version?
by Saavedro on 2015/07/18 14:26
I use this all the time but am baffled why there is no iPad version
iPhone 6 screen support
by Xav6455 on 2015/07/16 15:20
Can you please optimize this for the newer larger screen iPhones?
Add tags please
by Tesstimoan on 2015/07/11 14:26
I really appreciate the Bitly mobile app, but now that you've done away with bundles and added tags, it's time to update the app!!
A little bloody support?
by Side Eye from On High on 2015/06/25 02:21
iPhone 5s Bitly app has crashed numerous times in past few weeks when I try to log in with my fb app. Bitly pulls in FB...but then just spins its wheel. Uninstalled 3 times w/same result. Clicked "App Support" link above, and surprise the link is dead. Nice. I'd rather not rely on my desktop.
That 👇
by Mohammd Rashedi on 2015/04/22 02:48
awesOme 👌
This is an excellent app; checkout my links
by PathMax on 2015/04/08 04:50
Greetings, Brett Snodgrass here to tell you that this bitly app is excellent. I wish there was a bookmark app so when I am using safari I can just click it and it's bookmarked along with predetermined tags or tags selected from the page. I have several "rate my healthcare provider" websites as well as medical references. Today I rated my doctor, specifically I rated my psychiatrist Dr. Stamati at the website DrSocial dot org. Checkout my bit links; its great that this is free; I wish Diigo would be free also; they could fund the website with investors and ads like facebook. Paying for social media resources and bookmarking apps doesn't often make sense.
Can't log in.
by aetherius26 on 2015/04/04 11:50
App was working fine and now every time I try to log in using Twitter I get an error message saying something about an error 500.
APP IS CRASHING! PLEASE FIX!
by Httyd_HiccstridLover on 2015/03/22 16:08
I can't log in because it keeps on crashing!
Still not optimized for iPad
by appfetish on 2015/03/22 03:16
Earlier review: Loving bitly on my desktop for its trackability. Now I can see which article links are most popular with this writer's audience. Mobile app is helpful, too, but need iPad compatibility for my second go-to business tool.
Life on the Web w/out Bit.ly? Nope!!!
by atis53echo on 2015/02/19 18:33
NO better way to save space in all manner of communications involving the sharing of URLs! Period. I use it to track which URL references are actually followed & which are largely ignored. Bit.ly really helps manage relevancy in digital communication! As an app in general, superb! I have NEVER experienced a crash or lost my data. It's smooth, simple & intuitive. EXACTLY how an app interface should be! Force me to suggest a glitch, flaw or shortcoming...? Hmmm Okay. Fair enough. 1) The floating 'Edit' button placement seems a bit random. Occasionally it is right atop the 'Copy' button. HOWEVER, it doesn't "block" click-access to the copy action! Honestly, it can probably be controlled/made stationary. I just haven't bothered looking for the setting. Bit.ly is THAT simple, regardless. 2) Even though I often forget to click 'Done' before I copy and return to my messages, I'd love it if Bit.ly offered to create a new "bit mark" when I return to the app. It could simply ask me if "I want to save the currently-open event & start a new one." That's it! Minor issues to say the least!
No iPhone 6/6plus compatibility
by 247Triggerhappy on 2015/01/26 09:22
The app lacks compatibility with the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 plus Zoomed app doesn't look good Please UPDATE
Needs some tweaks
by jonbippy on 2015/01/09 23:11
Nice app but it would be better if they updated it for iPhone 6/6+. There are too many steps to get a link shortened. It would be nice if you could click an icon from the iPhone sharing menu that would shorten and copy to clipboard for quick pasting or something...
The iPhone 6 was released three months ago
by Al Kyder on 2014/12/30 02:56
And you still haven't made this iPhone 6 compatible? C'mon.
Didn't even download correctly
by VineyardLove on 2014/11/14 11:50
So the App Store thinks this is on my phone BUT it is not! Is it the App or The Store? Who knows but seems that lots are having probs. I'm going to the google shortener instead - sorry, I wanted you but apparently it's just not meant to be!
Buggy lately
by ColoradoBirdGal on 2018/06/14 10:29
This app used to work like a charm. For the past month when I create a new short link the app states “cannot retrieve link information” every time.
Wish I could Give 0 Stars
by GrimDivine on 2020/01/07 20:59
The site itself is great. The app doesn’t work at all. You can’t customize the back end of your URL’s. You can’t see the the bitlink that you created on the app at all. Then the site also won’t let you edit the back end when you sign on on the web. It’s horrible. But the link it auto copies will work. But you can’t see any analytics or anything for it because it simply doesn’t show up on the app. To access it on the website you have to click on it yourself a few times and then go to top links. That’s down right ridiculous. I just deleted it. I’ll just do my links online.
Hilton universal Studios Los Angeles,
by Yolo sand swag on 2020/08/09 23:33
Wonderful hotel, Thanks Front Desk Manager Kevin, and Team membersTori, Brenda, Victoria, Virginia, in the Pool everyone’s did a great Job, excellent customer services and the view to the hotel near to Universal Studios and the City View is spectacular, to get up in the morning and see up to the falcon it’s beautiful experience to the tourist and visitors to the Universal Studios Hilton. It’s the best hotel in Los Angeles. Thanks for the great experience, definitely I be back.
Great product and easy to use!
by MMAL8859 on 2019/02/11 21:03
I’ve always used Bitly to shorten my links, and now with the App, I can easily shorten links and see the metrics behind them. Product works just like the desktop version but way more convenient!
Very happy
by SWCA MnA on 2020/01/11 02:46
Very happy to have this app. Fast intuitive and much more professional not to have a mile long link for insta and various other things. Appreciate that it lists them out and gives some stats! Well done!
Does The Trick
by thegirlkyle on 2017/11/28 20:01
I was honestly surprised to see such a low rating as I've never had an issue before. Shortening links and tracking analytics has always worked perfectly for me!
On the go links
by Emily75431 on 2018/09/11 16:21
Love the app! It makes it so much easier for me to share links and get live data while I’m not by my computer. Definitely recommend it for all Bitly users.
Two stars because it works
by A.Cheree on 2019/10/22 11:25
Yes it will shorten your links but the internet looks at it as a spam link. I have a mobile phone app and it won’t even allow the link to be sent thru text. I placed it on my Facebook & fb shut my ad down saying I was using spam as a link. Not good. For that reason I’ll be finding another shortener to use.
Suddenly and for no reason, all my Bitly stopped working.
by AHSLU on 2020/02/13 02:34
1 year everything worked great. 140+ just stopped working. I can’t use any that I’ve created and this is the ONLY way your support team can be reached. The website chat only responds to business emails. So what do I do now??? Start all over from scratch with a competitor??? Wish I didn’t have to. But there’s no one to answer my questions.
Super convenient
by matt7456 on 2019/02/11 21:02
Helps me keep links handy, I can copy and paste them into other apps with a few taps. Nice to know how many clicks they have, too.
I love Bitly!
by Phicks732 on 2019/02/11 21:03
This platform is fantastic! I can easily shorten my links for any marketing campaign I am looking to run. I am going to start using Bitly links for SMS too!
You can’t edit previous URLs?
by Shawn Bishop on 2019/05/02 19:35
Hmmmm .... Isn’t that a common need of literally the core feature?
Amazing!
by markjosephson on 2019/02/11 21:01
Love Bitly and better links. This app and plugin makes it easy to create links from any App.
Good app
by antoneyjohn678 on 2019/09/09 16:06
Good application for use to shorten link used to easy and simple way.
No facebook authentication allowed
by RussG11 on 2019/05/19 16:05
I tried downloading on 2 devices now. Cannot log in with facebook, which is where I have all my links connected to. Spits back “Facebook Authentication Failed” without even opening up the app. It’s immediate. Fix this.
Links won’t shorten on app
by NickLaparra on 2018/07/30 16:32
I’ve tried so many times t shorten links in the mobile app and it never works anymore. It used to buy hasn’t for the past 6 months or so. Shortening links is literally the only purpose of this app. 👎🏽
PRETTY TERRIBLE
by MDWDesigns on 2018/08/26 00:11
For a little while it worked just fine, but then suddenly all future links I attempted to shorten, we not acknowledged as working links and were not “valid” None worked. I tried to delete and reinstall, and yes, I’m up to date.
No more customization
by sjamesbradley on 2018/05/21 02:14
I used to be able to create custom bitlinks, but it appears that option is gone.
I love Bitly!
by Bitly Fan on 2019/02/11 21:04
Amazing product that all should use!
Can’t Pass Go
by TheSalesScientist on 2017/11/29 22:04
I used to love this app years ago. Now that I have to creat an account I’m not able to get in. I keep getting a message that the usernames I’ve attempted to use are already being used.
iPad compatibility ASAP, please!
by IQMatthew on 2013/02/07 00:20
Feb. 6, 2013: I was very excited to see that there was an update to the Bitly app, which included a new logo. I also assumed that the update would include an iPad version that would enable me to use the app without having to change screen orientation or switch from the iPad keyboard to the iPhone keyboard. Alas, Bitly remains optimized for iPhone, and hence remains a pain to use on the iPad. I have downgraded my recent 4-star rating to three stars for THIS REASON AND THIS ALONE. This is what I wrote in my last review of this app, under the title 'Functional, but release an iPad version already!' 'This app works fine, but I am constantly annoyed at having the screen change orientation on my tablet when I use this program because this is iPhone software. 'Otherwise, I have no complaints.'
Cannot sign on

Just downloaded the app and now I'm forced to sign up although I don't know why. Yet another login I have to keep track of or not. So I try to sign up. Now I get "Failed to Connect to Server" error. So I can't even sign up. What a waste of time. Deleted.
Limited to 25 links?
by moza mini mi on 2020/01/07 21:13
I have the free version, is there a 25 link limit?
I have a special folder for apps like this...
by OldStPete on 2018/01/23 19:15
It’s called INACTIVES. All I needed was an app to shrink long URLs with one copy & paste. Yours seems to do everything but that. Adios!
BITLY SPIES ON YOUR CLIPBOARD
by ZachAndo on 2020/10/11 22:15
Ever notice how whenever you open BITLY, they immediately grab the content from your clipboard. Yep it’s happening. What are you doing with that data BITLY?
Requires an account?!?!
by Rockyrocks6 on 2017/07/26 01:36
Why do I need an account to shorten links???
Account seriously?

This is an excellent app; checkout my links
by PathMax on 2015/04/08 04:50
Greetings, Brett Snodgrass here to tell you that this bitly app is excellent. I wish there was a bookmark app so when I am using safari I can just click it and it's bookmarked along with predetermined tags or tags selected from the page. I have several "rate my healthcare provider" websites as well as medical references. Today I rated my doctor, specifically I rated my psychiatrist Dr. Stamati at the website DrSocial dot org. Checkout my bit links; its great that this is free; I wish Diigo would be free also; they could fund the website with investors and ads like facebook. Paying for social media resources and bookmarking apps doesn't often make sense.
Seriously Flawed App - Crashes & Can't Login
by tsd707 on 2014/07/21 15:57
While I very much enjoy using the bitly service for shortening web links, this is essentially impossible now with the mobile app that is now completely unstable & unusable. If you can manage to log in (now nearly impossible except on the webpage), the app won't pick up your current bitlinks as it used to and if you try to add or remove a link to a bundle, chances are pretty high that the app will completely crash. Up until today, I had no problems logging into my bitly account via the app, but now that it immediately logs you out as soon as you attempt to do so, the app is just a waste of time & memory space. My advice: if you use bitly, stick to the webpage & don't waste your time being frustrated trying to use this broken app.

Incredibly Convenient Bitly
by ClutterDesk on 2013/04/24 11:51
I'm an Internet marketing director and tend to read a large amount of articles throughout each and every day. I find it beneficial to share many of those articles with my team. With one tap on the URL from my iPhone or iPad and then one tap on the Bitly icon the article and URL are conveniently saved in my Bitly acct and I can then later go back and share the tidy/shortened URL or just read it at a later and more convenient time. I wouldn't be able to function quite the same without it, moving forward. Thanks Bitly!
What a great tool!
by @AZMike25 on 2017/03/29 11:16
I use this many times a day to send shortened URL's to Twitter, Facebook, emails, and texts. All you do is open bitly after you copy a long URL push the + button and add your URL and bitly auto copies it, just go about your business of what you were doing and paste it wherever you like. If you want to retrieve any of the URL's you shortened, just go back to the bitly app and copy it again. This is brilliant! Really great for Twitter where every digit counts. Highly recommended!
Mobile app frustrating & makes it hard to use for work
by Reviewr100 on 2012/12/23 22:24
I work at a company where bit-ly use is heavy. The most frustrating thing when I am trying ti get a bitly to post to Twitter is when it tells me "Oops...looks like you already saved that link" and then it becomes impossible to find the link it told you was already saved thru a search and I am hardly going to page thru screen after screen on an iPhone hoping I find it. (Given how frustrating that us, the Bitly people might consider a less flippant message than "Oops"). When I've tried to go to the full site, I can get an URL but it won't copy. It makes me grind my teeth. Maybe it's time to switch.
Does exactly what it needs to do
by Peterpopmr on 2017/04/20 22:12
This app is pretty much exactly like the website, just on a phone. It does everything it needs to do correctly. I have one feature to recommend though: they should add a feature where you'll get a notification or a sound of something everytime somebody uses one of your links in real time. I think that'd be pretty cool. Great app!
Update Please
by Shan Bae on 2016/07/19 18:41
I really like this service because it gives me insight I would have otherwise never seen. I had trouble logging in and I am certain I was using the right login but it only worked once I changed my password. Also it has been well over two years since an app update and there are things that are on the website I would like to have access to.
Most used app on my phone
by Peetypete2012 on 2016/10/06 16:04
I share stories and stuff with my friends all day long. I love being able to highlight a link, and have native option to shorten with Bitly. Not only does it copy to my clipboard but saves it for later if I don't have time to share. Pro tip: get to see how many clicks you got by opening up the App
Annoying popup when launched
by edgar_is on 2016/10/20 19:23
I use this app to keep up with the number of times my link has been clicked. It does a decent job at this but the annoying thing is that it opens a new link popup any time I open the app while I have a link copied on my clipboard. I looked for a way to disable this feature but I can't find it in settings.
Must Have For Journalists and Social Media Lovers
by julianbean on 2012/12/20 14:53
I never, ever write reviews so you know that this app is special. The functionality is great. There is a lot of power packed into this easy to use design. The integration with the web version of the service makes for great synchronization and the ease of working seamlessly across platforms.
Religious Web Browsing ...
by iGdobbs on 2013/02/03 01:46
This app helps handle the task of organizing links you'd like to save into organized online files. Bundle them into into groups and watch the links you share in the stats page get traction! Keep your web browsing simple and use this app religiously!!!
Yeah. This app is broken, especially the stats reporting
by infin8dvonE on 2016/12/22 04:13
Updated review. This app is still crap at reporting stats for shorten links. Stats are never recent and timely. Shortening links is great but when you want to go back check on how your shared link have done, that is where you find the missing holes of why poor sorting and no sorting by time span, no maps view, and no site previews :( which were basics of the original. Too bad google link shortening site does a better job but so clunky to use.
Great for a beginning digital media marketer or analyst
by Dimes_only on 2013/02/18 01:28
It's a great way to learn about data analytics and an adorable tool to brand your links. Not to mention that eventually if you were to launch your own website and create your own short link, it's positioned to do so.
Great but make iPad friendly
by Lacrumpet on 2014/06/25 22:18
It's time to make this app iPad-friendly! Need to be able to view horizontally. Lost one more star...why? Because my links keep disappearing one by one! I search for my saved links, and they are gone?! I can only get them when I log into the desktop site. Frustrating!! I use Bitly multiple times a day!!
Super helpful
by Jgdnyc2009 on 2013/05/26 00:38
Creates tiny links from long urls. Keeps track of link stuff you like and want to return to. Pushes out links to social networks (if you want). Also will tell you how many times your links have been clicked.
Used to be great, but no more
by Kitten Litter on 2014/05/06 13:52
The Bitly app used to work great for shortening links using my personalized URL. Unfortunately, the update has ruined the experience. Pasting a link to the app often causes it to freeze. And when tweeting my links, they're shared without the titles. I'd like to revert to the previous, already-perfect version, and would even pay for it. As it is now, Bitly isn't doing what it's supposed to or what it used to do flawlessly. This update was not progress.
Doesn't work if you have a lot of bookmarks
by cropwithyourfeet on 2012/09/20 23:26
I use my bitly account to wrap urls in a couple of apps with their API, so I have a large number of links in my account. When I launch this app, it downloads 10k shortened URLs and then it just gets stuck. I've deleted the app and tried twice and same thing. I don't know if 10k is necessary. I actually just want to grab the last shortened link (because I couldn't get it from the website in iOS Safari) and to shorten new ones.
