6.1

6.0.2

Convert music links from Apple Music or Spotify into a single link that works across different streaming service. To enable the feature, go to “Settings › Extension Settings › Universal Music Links”.

6.0.1

Facebook integration had to be removed from Linky. Facebook has reevaluated the integration of third-party applications into their platform and no longer allows Linky to post to Facebook Profiles and Pages. We had no alternative but to remove Facebook from Linky.

6.0

Linky 6 introduces an all new home screen.

The in-app web browser is gone:

For years, the home screen was a web browser dedicated to sharing links. At the time it was useful as Safari didn't support third-party Share Extensions. It's now much easier to share links directly from Safari or your favourite browser using Linky's Share Extension. Note that it's still possible to compose messages directly in Linky or using the Automation URL Scheme.

Two new onboarding screens:

A “Getting Started” section helps new users install the Share Extension and “Tips” helps you to make the most of Linky and learn helpful hints.

Less obstructive clipboard management:

When Linky is launched with a URL in the clipboard, the link is now presented in a non-modal widget replacing the modal alert.
