Over the past few months the bitly iPhone app has gained even more features to give you easy access to your bitmarks and bundles wherever you are. Whether you’re saving an article to read later, or quickly checking click counts on the bitmark you just shared, the iPhone app is the perfect tool for a bitly user on the go. Still not convinced? Here are five things that you may not have known about the iPhone app:
1. You can view your links anywhere
Once you sign into your bitly account on the app it will instantly sync all of your bitmarks and bundles, giving you easy access to your links even when you’re away from your computer.
2. Read articles later in reader mode
When you save a text heavy link like an article or blog post as a bitmark you will have the option to read the post straight from the app via reader mode. To access reader mode simply select a bitmark from your list and press the reading glasses icon on the top right side of the screen.
3. Save, share, or copy a shortlink easily
To save a link via the app, simply copy any URL to your clipboard while browsing your iPhone. The next time you open the bitly app it will immediately ask if you’d like to save this link as a bitmark.
To copy a shortlink, select the bitmark you’d like and press ‘i’ icon on the top of the page. You will see the option to copy your shortlink. You can share your shortlink on that same page via email, facebook or twitter by clicking the orange share icon on the top right corner of the screen.
4. See click counts straight from your bitmark list
You can now see click counts for your links directly from bitmarks list, giving you the chance to check your stats in seconds while out and about.
5. Add bitmarks to bundles
The iPhone app gives you access to all the bundles you’ve created yourself or curated with others. You can also create new bundles or add bitmarks to existing bundles.
