makeShort - iPhone App for shortening URL's

Not sure if this is useful app, as you can already copy and paste a URL from the iPhone Safari browser.  But 'makeShort' works pretty swift and might be useful in pasting into a tweat on twitter, email, blogs and text messages.

Basically I downloaded this free app from the iTunes store.  You can then copy and paste or type in a URL and it returns a short URL which is suppose to allow the user to copy it onto any app.   At first I tried tapping on the shortened URL so that I could copy it and try pasting into an email.  It appeared that nothing happened.  I opened a new message to myself to test it out and did a paste, the shortened URL was automatically copied to the iPhone clipboard. 

It worked great!
