Post [APP] ShortenMobile 1.4 - Automatically shortens urls for Twitter, etc. in background

ShortenMobile 1.4 [updated at 2010-03-24]

Description:
ShortenMobile watches the clipboard of the device and automatically shortens the urls for you. The application can be set to run at start up and hides in the background. I developed this application cause of the lack of this functionality in HTC Peep.

Currently implemented url shortening services:
  • bit.ly
  • tinyurl.com
  • snipurl.com
  • is.gd
  • anonym.to

How to use:
  • Install the cab file
  • Open ShortenMobile from StartMenu
  • Activate the switch "Run at startup"
  • Click on Hide-Softkey
  • Copy any url (including "http://" at the beginning) to the clipboard
  • The shortened url is available in the clipboard after the confirmation dialog has been shown

Requirements:
  • Microsoft .NET Compact Framework 3.5

Please post any errors, ideas, or your favorite url shortening services.

Version 1.4:
  • Completely refreshed user interface, which integrates flawlessly into the HTC Manila dialog style (thanks to Manila Interface SDK)
  • Allows recognizing hyperlinks with missing "http://" prefix
  • Fixed crash, when loading plugins (PluginInterface.DefaultPluginAttribute wasn't found in assembly PluginInterface)
Version 1.3:
  • Added new service: anonym.to
Version 1.2:
  • Startup is unsuccessful, when the application path contains whitespaces
Version 1.1:
  • Changed some labels
  • Added new shortening services: tinyurl.com, snipurl.com, is.gd
Remarks:
Found one minor bug. If you've upgraded from version 1.0, please uncheck and recheck the "Run at startup" checkbox. Otherwise an error message will occur after restart. (That's cause I've changed the installation folder and so the start up routine links to the wrong path.)

Question Error after soft resetting Samsung Omnia

Hi all,

I installed ShortenMobile 1.1 on my Samsung Mobile last night. Looks like a great program. However, the next time I soft reset the phone (Resco Backup requires it after doing a backup), I received an error right after the phone gets past the Windows splash screen. Here's the error:

"The file 'My' cannot be opened. Either it is not signed with a trusted
certificate, or one of its components cannot be found. If the problem
persists, try reinstalling or restoring the file."

Since ShortenMobile is the only new program that's starting at start up I went in and uncheckmarked the "Run at Startup" box, and then soft reset the phone again. Sure enough, the error goes away.

The custom ROM I am using has .NET framework 3.5.9085.00 running on it, and it was installed prior to installing ShortenMobile.

Anybody seen this before with your program? I didn't see any about similar problems. Never had v1.0 installed so this is fresh.

Robert
