Default [APP] Bookmark to Desktop

I just released a first BETA of my Bookmark to Desktop app. It allows users to share pages from the Android browser straight to the bookmarks bar of Google Chrome/Chromium on their desktop.

The app can be found on the market under the name "Bookmark to Desktop (BETA)"
The Chrome extension can be found on chrome.google.com/extensions if you search for 'bookmarktodesktop'

A firefox extension is on the roadmap.

IMPORTANT: Both the app and extension are in a beta phase so feel free to report bugs, comments or feature requests.

Another developer wrote a firefox add-on that works with the app.

Now both Google Chrome/Chromium and Mozilla Firefox are supported.

I am going to give this a try. I use chrome to phone and have wished for this function. Just out of curiosity - you didn't want to call it "phone to chrome"?

The idea is useful. It is sync between desktop and phone?

The reason I did not call it phone to chrome is because:

1. I did not want to limit myself to 1 browser
2. The extension does not have push yet. Currently the app polls every 30minutes and a manual fetch button is available.

Instant push that opens the bookmark in a new tab is coming very soon.

Hi

thanks for the nice app, I actually have been looking for something like this for quite some time :)

One question though: where are the accounts created/stored? I assume they are not bound with google account, so I am guessing they are managed by you?

Cheers

Yes, the accounts are bound to my backend. Currently there is no support yet for changing passwords and managing accounts but I'll try to add that in the near future.
