What is it about?

Linky lets you easily share webpage links, images and text extracts to Twitter from your iPhone and iPad.

Link me up, Scotty! Linky makes it really easy to share a webpage link with the webpage title already included in the post. What’s more, Linky can suggest a relevant image that you can attach to your post.

Screenshots out, text shots in

Screenshots out, text shots in. Why take a boring screenshot of a webpage to show a block of text when you can share a “text shot” instead? With Linky, you can quickly create and post an image elegantly quoting the text you highlighted on the webpage you’re sharing.

Effortless cross-posting. In addition to links and text, Linky supports sharing of images. What’s more, whichever type of content you’re sharing, the app allows you to post to multiple Twitter, Facebook and accounts at once.

App Store Description

Linky lets you easily share webpage links, images and text extracts to Twitter from your iPhone and iPad.

Write your post, choose which preferred social networks and Linky will do the rest!

Linky's very own iOS Share Extension allows you to post messages without ever leaving third-party applications.

Want to share a webpage Link? Linky can insert both the url and the title of the webpage as required. Linky will suggest images related to shared links and can attach them to your messages. It can also shorten links, giving you access to further link analytics.

How about selected text in Safari? Linky's Web Clipper extracts selected text and carries it over to the composer sheet, ready for you to edit. You can also make a text shot from the text selection for sharing as a beautiful image.

What about a great photo? Share images easily from Photos app and third-party applications. You can also preview the shared image in fullscreen before sending it.

Share any text too! Bring up the extension, the text is copied in the message, edit if required and share. It's that simple.

Use Markup to annotate, crop and edit images inline. Write or draw on the attachment, or add arrows and lenses, or obscure sensitive information.

"Linky 5.0 removes friction from sharing links, quotes, and images. I appreciate the intelligent use of Open Graph and Twitter Cards to save even more time, and I'm a fan of the deeper controls Linky brings when compared to the default share sheet of Twitter. I can't recommend Linky enough." - MacStories

"Linky turbocharges sharing links and images to Twitter from Safari or other apps supporting iOS extensions." 4/5 - Macworld
