    See Other improvements above.
    When a short URL is made, a message showing this URL shows on the screen. This message is only shown for a very short time.
    If you were not fast enough and did not copy this message, how can you learn what the short URL was?
    I am not fast enough.
    Can anyone help with an answer?

      William, there are to ways of creating a short URL after you made a QR code:
      - Copy > QrDroid.com
      - Share > QrDroid.com URL

      In first case, generated short URL is automatically copied to clipboard. Just go to where you want to use it and paste it.

      If you shared it, you will be prompted to choose what app to share to. For example, if you select Twitter, that app will be opened and created short URL will be there.

      We will consider to show that message for more time, or permanently until it is closed by user (at least when copying short URL).
