You like "Let Me Google That For You" (www.lmgtfy.com), but you don't want to go to their site to generate links on your Android device:

Now there is Let Me Android That For You, it will generate lmgtfy link, bit.ly links (so people can't see where are you linking to) and copy them directly to your clipboard and you can directly share the link to Twitter, Facebook, Messages, Email and many more.

https://market.android.com/details?i...android.lmatfy

EDIT: Added QR code by Bonzo.

The app is freely available on the market and not associated with lmgtfy.

HaHa .. I really like the idea of LMGTFY, but this would be more awesome.
Unfortunately, the new "Noob" video will limit stupid questions, thus reducing the chance of using the app .

Thanks!

Awesome app.

Any chance you could update bit.ly for those with API/custom domains?

This is handy!
Saves devs the whole spiel. I've searched for three whole evenings to find the answer to my question. People must learn it is out there. Just can't do one search, do a control f through the first page and give up. this will definitely help create a beacon for those who need something to set their direction upon. Without the evil words.

What do you mean by this? I used an old code of Bit.ly, which I made for another app. Didn't check the Bit.ly api again.

bit.ly allows applications to send your username/API key and subsequently, associate the shortened link to your bit.ly account for tracking/analytics.

https://code.google.com/p/bitly-api/...red_Parameters

Additionally, if you have a custom domain, it'll use your own URL for shortened URLs instead of "bit.ly". e.g. my short links are "jp1.ca"

https://code.google.com/p/bitly-api/...tly_pro_domain

Applications that connect to bit.ly typically ask for the user and API key.
e.g. TweetDeck
