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

What’s New

Version 1.1.0

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 !

Fixed expiration

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.

Stopped working

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.
