NoDetour

NoDetour


With the rising popularity of Twitter came also a wave of URL-shortening services. While most PC users don't even notice them, for a smartphone user they become quite noticeable for requests that would normally go to installed apps, like Youtube. Depending on the performance of the device the detour might add a couple of seconds to the URl-call.
NoDetour tries to solve that problem by decrypting the URL on the fly and directly showing the right app.

Another problem with short-URL is that the user doesn't know to which site he will be redirected. So for all those who like their parties without lemons, NoDetour gives you the option to display the long-url before opening it

If you have any suggestions or problems, feel free to email me.

Works! Mostly. Update: not always, still gotta go through browsers sometimes. Please add m.facebook.com/l.php links! Please fix your search terms, as it was impossible to find an app like this thru search. Only found it after an obscure mention deep in a forum somewhere.
