Java is compulsory for Windows? I really need this app without Java version.... I have no use of Java in my laptop other than this app. I am a little cautious about Java's security flaw as Malware become more and more dangerous for Windows. But i really need this app... haha, what to do?

Any chance for a Firefox Add-On or better yet: a global hotkey to paste my clipboard on windows to the android clipboard?
I'd pay at least 3 eur for that :)

I'm considering a non java version but it'll be a while if at all

The file will open itself on the computer once received. I think they're in downloads folder

Can't get service to start on OSX 10.13.2. I installed the linked Java SDK from the 'more info' link. Also tried restarting, but still get the Java install prompt.

Hey, this is an awesome integration.

The only downside for me is "ChromeTest" is continuously crashing. I'm using Opera browser and there's an extension for loading Chrome extensions to Opera. Maybe this is it?
The curious part is, all of the Handover operations keeps working after ChromeTest crashes but I believe it restarts after sometime it crashes.

    Handover

    YouTube demo : https://youtu.be/D2yYvg1UIx0

    Handover lets you seamlessly move from your phone to your PC by letting you open whatever content is on your phone in one click
    With the Chrome Extension, you can also move from PC back to your phone in one tap
    In most apps, you can use the share menu and select "Handover"
    Some apps will support Handover Tapless. These apps can push content without your interaction

    Requirements
    Windows PC or Mac with 10.9 or later and Android phone (experimental support for Linux)
    Both in same LAN (network, can't work over internet (yet!))
    Java 8 or later on PC

    Tapless Supported Apps
    https://handover.hamzahrmalik.com/#tapless
    Please email developers and ask them to add support then this can take off
    Note that rooted phones can use this mod to add support to Chrome, Youtube and any app with an embedded web view
    Also note non-supported apps can still use Handover via the Share menu

    Planned Features
    OSX Support (only if I get enough people interested in it, leave a post if you are) this has been added!
    Indicator on phone to show when connected
    Let me know if you have any ideas

    How to get Handover
    You need to download the app to your phone from Play Store or APK
    Then download the PC server from http://handover.hamzahrmalik.com
    Windows: Run the installation on your PC and start the service
    Mac: Open the downloaded .dmg file and drag the Handover folder into Applications. Then launch Handover Settings from Launchpad
    Linux: Run the java file to start the server. To launch content from the phone, use the bash script

    Changelog
    Version 2.0 - 24/4/16
    Initial Release​
    2
    Information for developers

    If you want to integrate Handover with your app, here's how

    What does integrating Handover Tapless do
    Integrating allows users of your app to click a button on their PC which will launch whatever content is on your app. It works best with websites, eg if your app is a browser, a forum, or some web based content

    How to do it
    Simply send a broadcast of the URL for the content whenever the content changes like so:
    Code:
     // Create Intent
    Intent i = new Intent("com.hamzahrmalik.handover.android.SEND");
    // Put the data in using the tag
    i.putExtra("**URL**=", "http://example.com");
    // Send broadcast
    sendBroadcast(i);

    Sample app
    Here's a sample app on Github
    Also see my commit for adding the feature to Lightning browser: https://github.com/hamzahrmalik/Lightning-Browser/commit/cf629947922f867e3124921ef0dd3e711aca03c7

    Thank you for quick answer :) Why do I need chrome extension? I can send website from PC to my phone without chrome extension (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lqo5G8ICZcw -> This is working without chrome extension) . What is use of chrome extension? :)
    Chrome extension is from PC to phone
    Without it you can do phone to PC
    It will still seem to work without the extension but if you change the page on the PC after removing extension it won't work anymore
