Jump directly to your favorite native apps and avoid using a browser to unshorten URLs such as and 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!

    I don't think it works for links any longer. It goes into an unending loop.

    Solves one of the small problems that used to drive me up the wall. Works pretty well.

    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.
