Blink: instant iTunes affiliate links on iOS
My friend (and frequent Letterpress rival) John Voorhees has just released an app called Blink.
Blink is an app for people who share links to iTunes and Mac App Store apps and use Apple’s affiliate linking program. It lets you search across the App Store, the Mac App Store, the iTunes Store and the iBooks store, then generate an affiliate link with the result. You can choose a link format: plain url or one of three Markdown formats.
You can also pass appsto.re, itun.es, appstore.com and itunes.com links to Blink to have them converted before you share them. With an extension that lets you use Blink’s capabilities anywhere on iOS, it’s a great tool for writers and bloggers who want to take advantage of affiliate linking without jumping back and forth between apps. There’s even a URL scheme for integration with workflow apps such as Drafts, Editorial, or Workflow.
Check out the homepage for more info, or just go grab Blink on the iTunes App Store ($4.99 US).
