Default Tinyurl/ URL Shortening Native app for blackberry

Please Login to Remove!

I update my twitter account basically only on my bb along with facebook.

Is there any Native app that will shorten urls for use in micro blogging?

Or any twitter app that does it "on the fly"

Is there a mobile website version of any of these services that anyone is aware of?

you want an application that'll allow you to paste in a url and get a tiny url back?

Check the last paragraph of Jared's article on BlackBerryNews:
http://www.blackberrynews.com/2009/0...lots-in-store/

bit.lifty - tinyurl function that is integrated with the BlackBerry. OTA link in the article as well.

Wirelessly posted (8300)

Thanks for the link. And the app is pretty darn awesome. I normally read everything form bbnews.com but I missed one!



One thing not so thrilled about with socialscape I don't link both accounts like. Stuff I find going on facebook is more personal I find to me. But ahh well now if they can manage to integrate it in a twitter app that would make my day maybe(& nix the memory leak)!!



Has then been added to the app track page? If not I'll do it.

I've been looking for something like this I think will work. Now if I can add a twitpik like this app would be great. Thanks for the link.
