Great must-have app This app fixes what I hate most about shortened URLs, that they destroy the flow between apps. I would like an option to disable the toasts in the app. I would also like to have an option to see the link unshortened before it jumps to the app, so I can decide whether it's safe or not. I'm hoping to see these features in a later version. Congratulations to a great first app!
Great concept but needs refinement While it's great at unshortening for popular apps, it doesn't do it for all which keeps me from making it the default. For example, opening google plus through twitter shortened links opens in Chrome when it should open in the Google+ app.
Must have - should be built in to android phones First, I think the app is fantastic. Second, can there be an option to remove the toast that appears when the link is unshortened? Sometimes the unshortened version is huge and fills a good chunk of the screen for a couple of seconds.
This is cool. The redirects from shortened URLs are annoying and this does make it a little quicker especially if there are multiple redirects so you can go directly to the app of the url (Google+, Facebook, Twitter, play store, etc) without having to go to the browser first. I've been using this app for a while now on multiple devices & still like it very much.
Not seamless Its not seamless and its a little annoying that it displays the long url on the screen, everytime. Sound concept, but needs to work seamlessly behind the scenes.
Needed. Period. This app is so useful, I hope it gets sherlocked. This gets more use than even ZXING's Barcode Scanner (Don't forget to buy or hire the Dev. Looking at you Google.)
Thanks to the Reddit community (/r/android) for the great response and feedback!
-Polished settings UI
-A toast is shown immediately to provide quick UI feedback, a followup toast then replaces the first after the URL has been unshortened
-Support for a few new URL shortener services: Reddit, Instagram, Sound Cloud, and Strava
-Added sample URLs for the newly supported URLs
-Fixed one networking bug related to weak or no network connectivity
-Adds a broken sample link for testing
