Linky is a small tool for iOS that I love. The app works as an easy way to share on Twitter or Mastodon from the iOS extension, and I use it every day to tweet MacStories articles or new episodes of Adapt. Used from Safari, the Linky part extension can automatically populate a tweet composition field with information from the site you see, such as title, URL, and selected images. Linky's ease of use makes it my favorite way to share content via tweets.
Earlier this week, Linky was updated with two new improvements to its text protection feature. For several years, the app has made it easy to create text images to share parts of an article, or personal thoughts that exceed Twitter's character boundary. This text shot feature is now better than ever though thanks to the addition of highlighting and visual customization options.

Linky also offers a variety of customization options for a wordhead look. You can choose from one of six font options for the text, all of which look good; The background to the text image can be white, sepia, gray or black; You can also choose a minimalist theme or standard original. The added flexibility offered makes me much more likely to use regular shots.
If you ever share stickers with text you find online, Linky is the best way to do it. The app also supports multiple accounts, allowing you to tweet from multiple accounts at once, and offers annotation features for standard images. All in all, I cannot recommend Linky highly enough.
