Default [App]URL Ripper

Hey!

I am relatively new to Android development and xda forum. URL Ripper is my first application. Serves the very basic purpose of extracting actual
url from short url's.

The way I see it, it'll be useful in mainly following 2 ways:
1. Avoid visiting spammy links (unwanted)
2. There are web browsers which face issue with short url redirection. This will be helpful.

Anyhow, I'd appreciate suggestions/inputs

Screenshots:







Here's the link to Play Store:
URL Ripper

Changes:
1. Added the ability to expand url from within any app! Tap on the link and select "URL Ripper" from dialog menu. It'll do the rest.
2. Keeps track of last url shortened (only hash value).

Changes:
1. Introduced Exit option (under menu) on users request
2. Added Twitter url shortner (t.co wrapper for links)

Changes:
1. Minor bug fixes.
2. Added website up-time checker.

Changes:
1. Fixed app crash on unstable connection.
2. Added clickable developer email address. No need to type it manually.

Direct Download Link (Apk) - Version 2.0.426

Note: I urge the users with Google Play Store access to please install the app from Google Play Store itself. It'll help me track the installations (feels good when numbers increase) as well as the flow of future updates will be lot easier

App looks good. Aren't you interested in maintaining it?

Mostly it is just an android wrapper for longurl.org. Demand wasn't quite there and I didn't get any real feedback, so I kinda stopped caring for it. There is one bug I wanted to fix, but I didn't get around to do it yet.

Yeah, saw that in app description. I have a different variation planned though. More of a "complete" solution with caching, sharing, etc. But then again, all of it depends on how well is it accepted and used. Also, just a thought, I didn't want to rely on a single service for link expansion. The service dies and app dies, I don't want this to happen P.S: No pun intended. Just my 2 cents.

On a side note, I do like the url catching mechanism from other application
