ShoutKey is the temporary url shortener that gives you a randomly chosen English word as the key for your URL. This makes it easy to share a URL in a non-electronic way, like telling your friend across the room or writing it on a whiteboard.
The ShoutKey app is a companion app to the shoutkey.com website.
- You can open ShoutKeys that have been created by using the main app.
- You can create ShoutKeys in any app that allows sharing of links by using the app extension.
Some handy ways to use ShoutKey:
- Share a link with a group of people in a classroom, newsroom, conference room, or your friends around the lunch table.
- Quickly share a website you are reading on your computer to your phone, and vice versa
Added ability to copy links in the main app and the extension after ShoutKeys have been created/opened.

Make expiration timer customizable
It works well and the safari integration is great for quickly shortening urls.
I don't like the fact that it limits the timer to 5 minutes though. Would be nice if we could choose our own link expiration time just like on the website !
I was disappointed to find that all created shoutkeys expire in 5 minutes (the minimum) even though the shoutkey website allows for longer durations.
If we could choose the default expiration date from within the app itself, I feel like the iOS version wouldn't feel as much like a watered down version of the original web-based service.
Otherwise the app is very good and the integration into safari as an extension is very convenient.
Installed on iPhone X and doesn’t work. Click the Create ShoutKey and nothing happens. Why not give us ability to simply paste what we want into the ShoutKey App and create a new ShoutKey link there. Useless app. Still have to go to website in browser.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
