Unshorten


Jump directly to your favorite native apps and avoid using a browser to unshorten URLs such as bit.ly and goo.gl. With Unshorten, you avoid the annoying browser middle-man to unshorten URLs and are taken directly to your chosen native application.


Tapping short links in Twitter clients, Facebook, Google Plus, and Reddit first opens a web browser. The browser then immediately redirects you to your selected default native application. Save time and avoid unnecessary taps by letting Unshorten expand short URLs and open the proper native application directly!

Thank you Reddit community (/r/android)! I got some great feedback from everyone and have started to address some of it in the first update. More features/improvements are on the way!

Might be very useful for some people Interesting idea, but for me it appeared to be useless. For reading Twitter Link bubble does practically the same job

Missing one thing Great app but it's missing an option to disable the ongoing notification in the status bar. I turned off notifications for the app, but it somehow returns when I restart my phone.
