This app uses your internet connection for the following 3 things:
1. Log-in to your bitly.com account
2. Download links (“bitmarks”) from your bitly.com account.
3. Upload links that you share through the “Share Charm” to your bitly.com account, as “Private” links.
All data is transmitted over a Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) encrypted connection.
Drop me a note here if you’re having trouble with the BitlyWin8 App, and I’ll see what I can do. Keep in mind that you got it free, and that I look after it in my very limited spare time.
