Shorten URLs in TextExpander

If your Twitter client doesn't automatically shorten URLs for you, you can use TextExpander to shrink those long links to tweetable lengths. First, add the Internet Productivity group by choosing File > Add Predefined Group > Internet Productivity Snippets. Then, to shorten a URL using a service like TinyURL, copy the destination URL to the clipboard, and type the abbreviation /tinyurl to insert the shortened URL at the insertion point.

Yojimbo 4.0.3

Send Article to a Friend

Bare Bones Software has released Yojimbo 4.0.3, a maintenance release with fixes for reported issues. Most of the changes to the information organizer relate to improvements in sync reliability, including a fix for stopped syncing after a change to the sync account password and resolution for a problem with internal sync handshaking that led you to believe an item had successfully uploaded (when, in fact, it had not). The release also makes clear in the sync account signup panel that you don’t need to sign up for an account to sync to Yojimbo for iPad (only if you want to share data between multiple Macs), and works around WebKit hangs by disallowing execution of JavaScript and plug-ins such as Flash when displaying Web archive items internally. ($30 new, free update, 7.9 MB, release notes, 10.8.2+)
