Generally good but conflicts with SEO
By ,

Generally good, but slow at updating known bugs.

There is a conflict with Yoast SEO with circular redirects because bitly replaces the permalink that the SEO uses. Fixed here (2 years ago), but not yet implemented https://wordpress.org/support/topic/conflict-with-yoast-seo-plugin#post-5197706

Good but could do with a couple of additional tools
By , for WP 3.9

The plugin works fine but it's missing a couple of important features which makes it useless for me:

1. The ability to create bit.ly links before a post is published. This is a must if you want to be able to links to scheduled tweets or any other service before the post is actually made public.

2. A button on the admin bar to copy the shortlink when viewing a page. Currently you can only get it from the editor on published posts.
