It would be nice to have the option to set an easy-to-remember, tidy, short URL address for map apps. For example, instead of this:

http://myOrg.maps.arcgis.com/home/item.html?id=SomeRandomAssortmentOfCharacters 

I would like to be able to direct people to 

http://myOrg.maps.arcgis.com/MeaningfulName 

As it is now, I'm using third-party sites like tinyurl.com to create user-friendlier URLs for sending links to our apps. We shouldn't have to do this.

This is a great idea and we have resorted to using tinyurl for this exact purpose.
