Would it be possible to add support for those too?
Feedly also uses those shortened URLs when sharing articles. I have no idea how Android's sharing infrastructure works, but it'd be nice to be able to "share" them with your app so they could get de-crappified. (Yeah, this would add some steps to the sharing process, but I'd rather go through a few more steps than share obfuscated URLs.)
Hi... That's some interesting feature: When you share an url with your favourite application, if it happens to be a supported short url, Short URL Resolver could advertise itself with the text "Share long url" or something... after the url is resolved, the share intent is relaunched with the long url.
What do you think? I have to check if it can be practically done.
Regarding feed(dot)ly/e/* i'll try add support for in in the next version, although a bit more work is needed. Check the redirects for your url:
(dot) google (dot) com/~r/techdirt/feed/~3/52W0A3UZKC8/story01.htm
(dot) feedsportal (dot) com/c/35345/f/661541/s/35aeba21/sc/4/l/0L(blablabla)/story01.htm?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed& utm_campaign=Feed%3A+techdirt%2Ffeed+%28Techdirt%2 9
