    Simple URL Shortener, not quite finished yet. I'm going to add URL tracking etc. What do you think of it so far?

    I think its about time someone actually added other useful features to these services if they want to get a large user base. At the moment it does the same thing the other 5000 shortening services do, why not have a programmer add some other features that would be useful to marketers beyond just simple shortening and tracking?

    Thanks, I am going to keep adding new features, there are only so many features you can add to a URL shortener.

    What do you mean a better logo? What is wrong with the current. And what does "work for it's graphic more" mean?

    Nice slogan to "remove the fluff from URLs". Great idea! I like that one too because it is very simple and redirecting fast. Keep it up!

    You could add features like: "Instant Tweeting" (to automatically post this URL on Twitter with a custom message or the first few characters of the page's title that the flf.me URL is redirecting to), earning cash (like people can earn a little bit of cash by using your URL shortener either by adding ads to their redirects or by letting users of your site complete surveys like at CPAlead) ... I'm sure you'll find some more things to add.

    I made it so you can share/like on FaceBook but how do you use the Twitter API. I have been looking all over but the Twitter API information is very disorganized.
