You know how sometimes when you click on a shortened YouTube/Play link and you have to go through your browser to get sent to the YouTube app/Play Store? Yeah that stinks. Unshorten cuts out the pesky middle man and saves you those five seconds. Unshorten gives you the gift of time, guys.

One thing I like about Android is, that it opens links within the right app. URL shortener don't work well with this system. Unshorten, well unshortens the links so this behaviour will work again. Free, without IAP or ads but an ability to donate to the author. Great!
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!
