Clean Links cleans & resolves URLs that have been shortened or proxied. It also removes unneeded tokens such as UTM components.

Finally you can share & email links without having to load it in a browser or edit the URL yourself.

Simply load the application and it will automatically detect & clean the url on your clipboard, putting the resulting URL back onto your clipboard, ready to use.

Clean Links also fully supports the X-Callback-URL Scheme. Which means it's compatible with apps such as:

* Things
* Tweetbot
* Drafts
* Notesy
* LaunchCenter Pro
* and more!

Brilliant Little App

I've been looking for a link-cleaning app like this for a while. There are others out there, but none like this.

I use Reeder and Pocket a for reading and saving articles, but sometimes sharing articles links can be a little clunky.

This app is especially useful for tasks like copying links directly from Google's search results page (without having to open them first). Love it.

Simple and Works

This is a great app, especially for those who blog on mobile devices. Does a great job of cleaning up URLs and the x-callback-url support means that using it with Drafts makes it even more convenient.
