Short Menu is the smartest way to shorten links!

With Short Menu URL shortening is fun. It's in your menubar, so you can access it anytime. Short Menu has a large selection of URL services and it's very easy to use. Short Menu automatically takes the URL from your clipboard. You only have to click one button, then you've shortened your URL and your short URL is copied to your clipboard. Short Menu automatically sends notifications to you which are showing your new URL.

You can also set a global shortcut for shortening URLs. Just go into the preferences, choose one of 12 services and set the shortcutcut you want. And whenever you press the shortcut, the URL from your clipboard will be shortened and automatically copied. Of course, Short Menu will send a notification to you.

But there's also an easier way to shorten URLs, it's called Auto Short. With Auto Short you can automatically let shorten every URL you copy. Simply select a service in the preferences and activate it. You can also control the interval in which Auto Short should search your clipboard. The shortened URL will automatically be copied and it'll send a notification. It's that easy!

Of course you can adapt the URL services. For example you can use your own and account. If you want to use a completely other URL service, you can configure it in the preferences.
