IsDown? is an application with the simplest of tasks to check whether a site is working or not.
Have you ever found yourself copying links from one site to another to finally realize that the site is not working then this is the solution.


Extra Feature:
tinyUrl link creation.
Expanding shortened URL and where it redirects (Prevents friends pranking.)



Planned Features:
Add notification to make it faster to check and tinyUrl Create

Will Gladly accept feedback . and if there is someone who can help me with notification widgets please tell me

Credit For the Feature graphic goes to Navneet Suresh.

For this type of app. I think it'd be a great idea to see a floating UI portion. I don't know how many times I wasn't sure if a site was down or I'm having a connection issue only to have my connection pop on and off and I'm forced to refresh a page which makes me lose some data if I'm filling out an e-form or something like that.

Just a thought. I wonder what you guys as devs think.
