Introducing Associate: Simple Affiliate Linking for Amazon

I’m pleased to introduce Associate: Simple Affiliate Linking for Amazon. Associate builds on what we learned with Blink, my iTunes affiliate linking app, and brings it to the Amazon Associates affiliate program. From Associate you can search for items in Amazon’s store and generate an affiliate link with your Amazon Associates credentials in just one tap. You can also convert any Amazon URL you have on your iOS device’s clipboard.

But, as with Blink, Associate’s real power is its extension. With it, you can create an affiliate link from within Amazon’s own iOS app or anywhere else you come across an Amazon product URL. Associate is universal and supports Split View, so you can use it side-by-side with your favorite text editor on the iPad Pro.

Associate is available on the App Store for $4.99.


As with most projects, Associate wouldn’t have been possible without the hard work and assistance of others. Associate was built entirely in Swift by my son Owen. I’m just the product development/marketing guy on this one. Owen built a solid foundation for Associate, on which we plan to build addition features in the coming months.

Frank Towers designed Associate’s beautiful icon that ties it together nicely with Blink, and came up with a color scheme that works perfectly. Thanks Frank.
