ShortLink shortens your links and returns a URL which have been shortened by one of it's supported services. It also generates a QR code which you can share with your friends if need be. With this app you can easily pass links/URL's from other apps into this app, shorten in, and quickly share them through other apps such as facebook, twitter, email etc.
Stores the shortened link history on your phone for easy access. If need be, it can also be cleared.
Currently supports the following providers:
Do you miss a provider? Let me know and I'll see what i can do.
* Log in to the providers which supports it
* Click statistics
* Loads of other nifty stuff
Tired of sharing long, nasty URLs? ShortPaste immediately shortens URLs after copying them (from an app such as Chrome, YouTube, Newsstand, etc) in the blink of an eye. Like magic, your long URL will appear in its shortened form when pasted. Supports bit.ly and goo.gl.

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 (~700kb). 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!*

This app is able to work as plug-in for twicca (Twitter client). In the situation that you are reading your timeline, you can send URL in a tweet to notification panel quickly and open the URL after finished reading timeline.
This app accesses to the Internet to get the page title.

For example, pressing the share button in the YouTube app and selecting 'Copy URL' will copy the videos URL to the clipboard and disregard extra text like the title information.

If you like this app, please consider purchasing the pro/donate version.

Note: The option to share URL will disappear if you select a default browser. The app is only useful for those who want to choose something different every time they open a URL on their device.
This is basically a simple interface for the well known goo.gl website.
The application also starts a service after the first time you start it. When you copy a link in clipboard, you will get a notification asking you to convert it.
We decided to use goo.gl because Google Links are SAFER than clicking on normal URLs because of the increased layer of security that Google adds to those links. The Google URL Shortener service displays a warning message if the short URL points to a suspected malware, phishing, or spam website. You will not be able to infest your friends malicious links with this application.
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 :'(
Forked version of "Host Monitor"
-Allows for an optional PATH where the program will do a HTTP HEAD instead of a ping
