Demonstration

Example 1

Basic use

You want to transmit by mail, to a close person, the route between your working place and an Apple store. The issue is the length of the link :

http://maps.google.com/maps?f=d&geocode=17518012984407502921,40.7409
69,-74.005395&saddr=401+W+14th+St,+New+York,+N.Y.+10014,+USA+(Apple+Store)
&daddr=1+Infinite+Loop,+Cupertino,+CA+95014,+United+States+(Apple+Inc)&mra
=pe&mrcr=0&sll=39.118072,-97.721241&sspn=47.517467,82.265625&ie=UTF8&ll=39
.571822,-98.085937&spn=47.230332,82.265625&t=k&z=4

You just have to copy the link and paste it in the link creation form, click on "GO" and you will get this link :

http://linkasa.com/1

These two link lead to the same page, except that the second one is clearly shorter and easier to transmit.

Now you understand the interest of Linkasa! ;)

Example 2

Customisation of a link

Same case as example 1. The url is to complicated to be transmitted, but this you got to tell it to a friend by phone. You will need to spell it easily.

http://maps.google.com/maps?f=d&geocode=17518012984407502921,40.7409
69,-74.005395&saddr=401+W+14th+St,+New+York,+N.Y.+10014,+USA+(Apple+Store)
&daddr=1+Infinite+Loop,+Cupertino,+CA+95014,+United+States+(Apple+Inc)&mra
=pe&mrcr=0&sll=39.118072,-97.721241&sspn=47.517467,82.265625&ie=UTF8&ll=39
.571822,-98.085937&spn=47.230332,82.265625&t=k&z=4

Copy the link and paste it in the link creation form, and fill a tag in the second field. Let's put "store" in it and click on "GO". You will obtain this link :

http://linkasa.com/-store

You will just have to tell your friend linkasa.com/-store ('linkasa dot com slash dash store').

Much more convenient isn't it?
