Ever felt that there should be an easy for you to shift the websites you most often visit on your desktop to be readily available on your phone? Well Google today released Chrome to Phone for all phones running the Android [version 2.2 only].
This tool enables you to easily push websites you are visiting on your Chrome browser directly to your mobile device. This had been created by Dave Burke and it is quite simple to use. You can enable this by clicking a mobile icon on your browser and porting the sites to your phone. This can be done for any web page you visit. While all this sounds quite simple to come from Google, pushing forward websites isn’t the only thing it does. Chrome to Phone also does the same with directions and phone numbers.
You can export directions from Google Maps, which will directly appear on your device. Similarly if you have a contact number on a page, just highlight the number and click the same mobile icon to send it to the mobile.
I am just missing why this isn’t two way? As in why can’t something similar be done with transferring pages, contacts, etc from the mobile device to the browser, something like Phone to Chrome. Perhaps this will be coming soon, but at present Google is more interested in bringing Chrome to Phone for Apple’s iPhone. Oh course if Apple doesn’t have issues with this only being a Chrome extension.
