Great app. I use it on both Mac and iOS and it syncs the history of my shortened URLs. It also takes my Droplr, Bitly and CloudApp user info (accepts 8 different services) for shortening too.

This is an amazing tool if you often use links and have little space for those hefty URLs. It functions flawlessly and is very simple to set up. To cut a "long" story "short" it is worth every cent you pay for it! Fariborz AMIRSHAHI - Verona (Italy)

Good job! Really smart URL shortener, that is designed for easy using. I like the option of syncing with iCloud. This makes is even more useful as you have access to short URL anytime.

If you work with URL's with any frequency, Short Menu makes the shortening of URL's dead simple. You know how long they can become, making e-mails unreadable, making markup look like it was attacked by a two-year-old, and making your life generally miserable. There are also occasions when you just don't want to put your domain, or the path to a file, out there for just anyone to parse--especially if the document or e-mail may pass near some ill-meaning bot.

You can set a keyboard shortcut to open the menu-bar panel, and set a second keyboard shortcut for Quick Short, which shortens the URL on the clipboard. The Auto Short feature automatically shortens any URL copied to the clipboard for instant results.

We at MacUpdate are constantly dealing with long urls, which can be cumbersome or error-prone. The developer of Short Menu has made our Content Editing team very happy by providing a reliable tool with a smooth, seamless workflow for creating shortened URL’s.

With support for fifteen services, blacklists and whitelists, the ability to define custom shortening services, and options for notification, Short Menu may be just the thing you need to prevent a shortened temper.

Simply the best. The Auto Short function is very useful : all you have to do is copy the URL and Short Menu do the rest.
