Just A Short Suggestion

When creating content for myParish App, do you find yourself running out of space if you include a web address? Many times, we want to direct users to a website, but the actual web address can be long. What’s the solution?

It’s easy: use a link shortener! One of the most reliable is Bitly. It’s easy to use. For instance, the web address for the landing page of the Diocese of Grand Rapids is this: http://www.dioceseofgrandrapids.org/Pages/default.aspx. Pretty long. By using Bitly, you get this instead: http://bit.ly/1u6ydMV. That takes up far less space, and takes your reader to the same page.

Using a link shortener is just one short suggestion to help manage your app content.
