The fastest and prettiest way to shorten URLs and get their click analytics.
Shorten long URLs and squeeze them into fewer characters to make links easier to share, tweet, or email to friends.Yes there are a thousand and one applications that shorten links on Google Play, but, you’ll be hard pressed to find one better looking, which offers more functions and with near complete analytics information than Google URL Shortner. We have reviewed a few link shortners before and I actually have a few installed on my phone right now, well, I did until I found this gem. Built in Google’s recommended guide lines and an extensive feature list that raises the bar for applications of this kind. Google should buy the app from the developer and pre-install it on all new phones and tablets. That might seem a bit over the top but have a read on for what’s included. Did I mention Google URL Shortner is 100% free with zero adverts?

As a site owner and social media user, I share links all over the net every day. Those colourful analytic reports are extremely useful for finding our target audience, what browser and OS they use, all in a clean and easy to read manner. (I noticed some interesting stats too) As an average user even just using Google URL Shortner for sharing links on Twitter with it’s character limit and finding how many of your followers actually look at what you share can be a fun and informative usage scenario also. I’d / we’d certainly recommend deleting the rest of your apps like this and using Google URL Shortner only from now on.
