Super simple and elegant link shorter app!


I really love this app! I was looking at another link shortner app before this one. Sure, their app was effective. However, it lacked the aesthetics that this app has. The iOS 11 design in the app is also another huge plus! This app also has a share extension so that you can share directly from your web browser of choice, as well as 3D Touch shortcuts and a Today Widget. If I were to have any suggestions for improvement, it would be to figure out how to fix the visual “glitch” (if you can really call it that) in the share extension. This doesn’t affect my rating because I’ve seen this happen with multiple share extensions and I believe this might be an issue with iOS in general.

tl;dr: I really love this app and see myself using it a lot! I urge the dev to keep up the amazing work! And thank you so much for making this free!

Developer Response

Hi, thanks for leaving a review, I really appreciate you taking the time to let others know what you think of my app. I'm glad you like the design, and the the share extension – I definitely find it useful too!

I think I know what you mean by the "glitch" (the white lines at the side of the orange background), but if not, please could you email if you have the time. Thank you once again for your review, and I hope you continue to find URL Melter useful in the future.

Love it!

It’s so easy and simple to use and it gives me very detailed tracking to my links! Thank you!



Perfect for what I needed it for, I just needed to shorten a few links and it was very east to paste and then copy the new link. I tested the opening of the link and it automatically redirected to the link I wanted it to. Thanks!
