Unshorten

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!

great, but needs feedback option this app is great but there are several shortcut links that you don't handle, and I'd like an option to send them to you so you can have the app process them. rather than listing them here, I'd rather have an option to send it via your app interface.

Complete Rubbish It ain't opening on my Android 4.2.2. Hence, it's labelled complete rubbish.

Must Have I have it on every device, even my desktop. Imagine the information you think is transmitted with a link, then triple it and you're still not even close.
