Bit.ly and the iPhone

I have been hassling with getting the bit.ly bookmarklet on my iPod touch. The same problem is of course with the iPhone. I have found references which encourage to use the bookmark synchronization in iTunes. But there is another way:

  • Follow this link;
  • Follow the link in that page;
  • Bookmark that page;
  • Give it a convenient name;
  • Save the bookmark;
  • Edit the bookmark again and remove the beginning of the URL until and including ?___;
  • Save the bookmark again and use the bookmarklet.

Tweetie is using the same trick. Have fun.
