    No i understand that, thats what came up in the search, I mean is there anything beyond that? I mean I just dont see why you wouldnt type the url in, or use your 15.4" display instead of just ur 3.7" phone

    think about this... I'm getting ready to go to a place I've never been... I look it up on google maps and chrome to phone... opens map with destination... select navigate.. done

    I'm walking out of the house and dont want to forget this website... zipped to phone now I can read at my dr appt or whatever...

    Its also a proof of concept for cloud to device messaging api

    That and say you're on a web page that you had no idea how you got to and it has a very long url. Chrome to phone.

    Alright thankyou, that makes a great deal of sense. That i totally understand. Now im wondering if there is an app (or there should be) like the Firefox addon map to this, where you can highlight text and search it in maps. Or extract it from a text from google

    ive actually used it when browsing from PC and see a file i want on my phone but am too lazy to actually use the data cable... goto the page with the link then hit chrome-to-phone and download it directly to the phone.

    For phone to PC things, I use eStrong File Explorer or Linda File Explorer. Its a setting in there where u connect to the PC over Wifi, transfer files both ways.


    U are not the only one.....lol. I use the data cable mostly for charging only now. Its golden for me when I'm at work since they blocked the USB ports.
