Blink: Better Affiliate Links

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

"…this little utility is well crafted and immensely useful for me." — Graham Spencer,

"If you write on iOS, you’ll find it extremely useful." —

"it’s a great tool for writers and bloggers who want to take advantage of affiliate linking without jumping back and forth between apps." Brett Terpstra,

"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

"With a nice set of URL schemes, this is going to be part of my mobile writing workflow from now on." Stephen Hackett,


The iTunes affiliate program lets you link to media on the iTunes Store, the iOS App Store, the Mac App Store and 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 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 its search and link conversion functionality available from other apps, so you can create links without interrupting the flow of your work. Blink also has URL scheme support, so you can incorporate it into workflows with other apps that support URL schemes.


Use Blink to quickly search across multiple stores at one time. Blink makes it simple to switch between media types and find exactly what you want. Tap on any search result to get more information about an item. After you find what you want, you can drop an affiliate link or a markdown formatted link into any document or share your link via other apps.


The affiliate program uses links in the format. Blink recognizes the following types of links, converts them into standard affiliate links and adds your affiliate token and a campaign token:




iPhone 6s


iPhone 7 Plus


Just paste any compatible link into Blink’s search box to generate an affiliate link with your credentials or use Blink’s extension or URL scheme to convert links on the fly.


Writers will appreciate the ability to generate standard affiliate links or Markdown-formatted links. Blink supports three Markdown link formats so you can choose one that fits your writing style best.

But no matter how you use affiliate links, Blink links are better links.
