App allows you to view all of your current bookmarks, web history, and even open tabs on your iPhone or iPad.
Usage of Google’s Chrome browser continues to rise, and in some parts of the world has unseated Microsoft’s Internet Explorer as the dominant browser. One of the more popular features is the built-in auto sync feature that maintains your bookmarks, preferences, and extensions in the cloud so that whenever and wherever you login to Google Chrome you’ll get the same customized experience.
Now Google has already released a Chrome Beta version for Android, but a Chrome mobile browser for the iPhone and iPad is still unavailable, meaning that users have to go through the messy task of manually importing their bookmarks, and then updating them periodically (I know firsthand because I recently purchased an iPhone 4S).
The solution? Chrome Sync Pro.
“With Chrome Sync Pro, you can leave your computer at any time, pick [up] your iPhone or iPad, fire this app up , and continue browsing,” say the developers.
With Chrome Sync Pro you can view all of your current bookmarks, web history, and even open tabs! You can literally drop what your doing on your laptop or desktop PC, and pick up your iPhone or iPad and continue browsing the Internet without skipping a beat.
The way it works is that you first have to install a Chrome extension on your Mac or PC, and then install the Chrome Sync Pro app on your iPhone or iPad. The extension syncs with the Chrome Sync Pro app so that everything is available on your iOS device.
As for security (I’m sure nobody wants their Web history and bookmarks floating around out there for everybody to see), the Chrome Sync Pro developers creatively use your personal Google doc account so that only you can access this sensitive data.
“We’re very serious about data safety, so we do not store any of your data on our server, instead we creatively use your own Google doc account to store data,” they add.
Now Chrome Sync Pro isn’t free, but it is only 99 cents. Isn’t it worth a buck to have access to all of your Chrome bookmarks, history, and open tabs on your iPhone or iPad? It sure beats having to manually import and update them all the time.
