Very helpful, shows where you're going Lots of urls aren't intended to tell a careful reader anything accurate. This is a helpful shortcut to do the basic research you should try before ever following a link in unsolicited email.

HTC Sense incompatible Nice idea and I would have loved for it to work. However, it doesn't work with HTC Sense because of the way Sense handles app association for the web browser.

Meh A neat idea, but it requires an extra click for every link, not just short links. The people who need this most (mom and kids) won't accept having to deal with an extra step every single time they click a link while cruising facebook or whatever.
