Works well Rated 5 out of 5 stars
I was about to write a review saying that it didn't work at all. And then I discovered that the reason it wasn't working was because the hostname part of the URLs I was trying were not fully qualified domain names. Shortly was saying "generating short url '(null)' and copied to clipboard".
The upshot of this is that actually Shortly does work really well (on properly qualified URLs) Thank you!
(A request is that it would be good for Shortly to report a meaningful error if bit.ly refuses to generate a short url, rather than reporting that a '(null)' link had been created and copied to the clipboard.)
Thank you very much for the feedback. I'll fix it up!
