Short Web, an app to help shorten links on Windows Phone is now available on Windows 8. Users can shorten links using the bit.ly, goo.gl and is.gd services which are among the top used URL Shortening services online today. If you have a URL that has already been shortened using one of these services then you will also be able to retrieve the original link using Short Web. Users can also shorten links from other apps by using the Share charm and then selecting Short Web.
We have big plans for Short Web and what has been released in this initial version is just a taste, so make sure you download it, and let us know what you would like to see included in the next version. You can see more information on the app here.
