A little utility to shorten URL’s to make them more friendly for use in twitter and sms messages or mobile email, preventing links form wrapping in email helps them maintain their clickability when sending them.
Using them in SMS saves you precious characters and allows more text space to describe the url your sending. You could use URL shortening services via the web but the clipboard interaction is more cumbersome than using a small utility.
Auto places url’s from clipboard into conversion window on application launch
After conversion the snipped url is placed on the clipboard for use in your sms/email or application of choice
Very simple one screen application
Built in checking for update via the about screen
