Squibner LLC is an independent iOS and OS X development shop based in Hinsdale, Illinois. I run Squibner with my son, Owen, who has been building iOS apps since the introduction of iPhone OS in 2008. Squibner, which was formed in 2014, has several actively-developed apps on the iOS App Store including Blink, which is described below, Associate, an Amazon affiliate link generation utility, LogMyRun, a log book for runners and Drive, a utility that lets student drivers track their time behind the wheel.

I manage Squibner, handle marketing for our apps, and lead the development of Blink.


Blink: Better Affiliate Links


"Blink is my new favorite way to create iTunes affiliate links on iOS." 
    — Federico Viticci

With the iTunes affiliate program you can link to media on the iTunes Store, the iOS App Store, the Mac App Store and the iBook Store and earn commissions from purchases made via those links, but creating affiliate links can be time-consuming and fiddly. Every link needs an affiliate token and if you use campaign tokens, it is tedious to track the tokens you use. Blink eliminates the friction of creating affiliate links by saving your tokens and other preferences so they are always available.

Blink is for anyone who has ever linked to an app, book, TV show, music or movie:

    •    Maybe you send links to the next book your book club is going to read;
    •    Or you have a Tumblr where you link to your favorite music and movies; 
    •    Or you want to share the latest app you discovered with your Facebook friends.

With Blink you can make a link to share with just one person or a thousand, it's just as easy either way.

Blink is flexible. Use Blink to search across multiple stores simultaneously or convert existing links into ones supported by the affiliate program. 

Blink is everywhere you need it. Blink has a powerful extension that makes  link conversion available from other apps, so you can create links without switching apps. Blink also has URL scheme support, so you can incorporate it into workflows with other apps that support URL schemes.

"...this little utility is well crafted and immensely useful for me."

"The real power of Blink comes from its extension for frictionless affiliate link generation... without interrupting the flow of your work." 
    — Christian Zibreg, iDownload Blog
