    Currently, I can get a short URL for any web map via the Share dialog in the ArcGIS.com map viewer; however, there is no way to obtain a short URL for a hosted web app.  Since web apps are much better for sharing maps with my audience, I am much more likely to share apps via social media or email than web maps.

     

    I'd suggest adding a tool to the item description page for web mapping applications that provides a short URL and copies it to the clipboard.
