This application utilizes goo.gl for in App URL shortening and allows you to share the resulting link via any share App on your phone, such as facebook or twitter.
You can link your Google account to the App so that generated URL's are added to your link listings at http://goo.gl for tracking. This is optional, by default generic goo.gl links are generated that are not attached to a specific Google account.
You can pass Links/URL's from other applications into this app, shorten them and share them through other apps e.g. facebook, twitter etc.
If your Google account is linked you can view previously created goo.gl links and the click stats of those links. You can also click any previously created link and share it from the stats page.
The app also generates a QRcode of the resulting shortened URL and allows you to share this also through email, facebook or any other sharing app as well.
If you have any problems please let me know the issue and I will get it fixed.
- support goo.gl, bit.ly and j.mp
Easily share shortened URLs.
Supported Android Version: 1.5 or later.
** Version 0.3.0 **
Change icon design.
Share shortened URLs with page title from browser. (Android 2.2)
Shorten multiple URLs. (separate by a space)
There have been situations when I wasn't able to open the short urls on my android device. For the very same reason and considering some legacy web browsers still struggle to handle these url redirects, I decided to implement it in form of an application. Moreover, it'll also save you from visiting any unwanted link(s).
This is my first android app, I therefore urge the users to be patient and report errors as well as suggested improvements. I'll be more than happy to make it a better app :)
Apart from the most used url shortening services, others will be added based on user's request. Your app, your services, your convenience!
Added: Ability to check the availability of a website.

Forked version of "Host Monitor"
-Allows for an optional PATH where the program will do a HTTP HEAD instead of a ping
-Fixes crashes and works in Cupcake 1.5
-New desktop widget summarizes overall status every 15 minutes (long press home screen to add)
NOTE: This app does NOT have its own launcher icon. The only way to "open" it is to long-press a blank area of your home screen and choose to add a shortcut using 'Url Shortcut'. Some new launches hide shortcuts amongst the other widgets. If your launcher has a widgets drawer then you should look in there for a 1x1 Url Shortcut widget.
You should use a good launcher like ADW Launcher, Launcher Pro or Go Launcher which lets your specify custom icons. This means that I don't have to bundle a billion icons with this app.
NOTE 2: Use 'URL Shortcut' and the 'Desktop VisualizeR' to create shortcuts with whatever icons you like:
If you give this app 1 star, you have anger management issues and expect too much from the people around you. You will be unable to find someone to care for you and this will benefit the rest of us by stopping your negative genes from propagating to the rest of the population. If you have problems (with the app, not in general) or suggestions, press the contact button in the Android market app :)
People with anger management issues:
Jeffzda - you've missed the point of this app. The idea is to NOT clog up your browser's bookmarks with more URLs.
Byron - There's no misrouting going on, that's Android not knowing what to do with a mailto: URL. The shortcut this app creates simply has 'data' set to whatever you give it. If I claimed to treat mailto: URLs any different then fair enough, but I didn't. To the anger clinic with you!
Lisa - Lisa, Lisa, Lisa... did you even bother to read the application's description? There is no launcher icon for it, because that isn't how you used it. Do you also know that I can't actually reply to you to help you? Ah well, that's another 1 star attached to this app forever. You've probably uninstalled it already and forgotten about its existence. The Play Store isn't going to forget about that 1 star though :'(

Easily accessible from Twitter and Facebook apps. Click on any shortened link in a tweet or a direct message to reveal the original link before opening it in the browser. Good practice to avoid opening malicious or ipspy links accidentally.
The app expands links via LongURL.org. It was created as part of a Bahrain Watch project to protect online activists from ipspy links. read more on https://bahrainwatch.org/ipspy/viewreport.php.
Why would you need a (big) web browser to open link that sends you to a Youtube video. Click this youtube link on your Android phone: http://bit.ly/10xGRnq (Then try again after installing this app to see the difference).
Sure, there are other apps that do this, but I think mine has unique features:
* Doesn't get in the way: It's small (~200kb). Minimal, but useful, user interface. Does exactly 1 thing and does it right.
* Handles Facebook's external links. Tired of launching the browser to open a m.facebook.com?l.php URL? No more.
* Handles Youtube's attribution links. These should be handled by the Youtube app (Google's fault). Short URL Resolver handles them for you, so you get to see the video on the Youtube app. No browser involved.
* Handles Tapatalk api click links.
* Handles google.com/url links, used in the Play Store for links in the description.
* Partial support for adf.ly.
Also, it's free, and ad-free. You can make an in-app donation if you feel it's worth it.
It doesn't use any third party service for resolving the URLs. The basic principle is making an HTTP request and determining where it's being redirected.
It's my first public Android App, but I think it's the best of its kind (you can try and prove me wrong X-D)
*Thanks for the comments and the reviews!*

Useful for launching tasker tasks from NFC tags-
THIS APP REQUIRES THE TASKER APP TO BE INSTALLED!
for Sony Xperia smarttags simply use the the smart tag app. To run a tasker task use the "Open URL" action, then set the url "tasker://taskname" instead of "http://" (change taskname to the name of your task defined in tasker- tasks are case sensitive)
e.g. "tasker://mytask" to run a task called "mytask" defined in tasker.
for writable tags it should work as simply as writing the tasker:// url and task to the tag itself.
It will do until tasker add nfc capability :)
On some devices the "tags" app comes pre-installed and blocks the url from nfc tags from being launched automagically, meaning you need to touch the screen to launch the task. You may find disabling the "tags" app from settings->apps->all fixes this problem.
Also it is VITAL that tasker is installed before this app or it will not work, this means that if you upgrade or reset your device etc. and google play automatically re-installs all your apps then it may not work. this is solved by simply uninstalling tasker url launcher, checking tasker is installed, and then re-installing the tasker url launcher from google play.
