There are hundreds of thousands of iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad apps for just about everything -- so how come the one you need, the one you know just has to be there, is so hard to find? Enter TiPb's new weekly feature where staff and readers alike sort through the App Store and help you find just the right App for That. This week, Jonathan @MrJR84 asks:
Hey @llofte! Is there an bookmarklet/app to share a webpage or clipboard to other devices? Since we don't have WebOS touch-to-share...
To see what we found for Jonathan, follow along after the break!
Handoff [$1.99 - iTunes link] is a universal application for iPhone and iPad that allows you to share things from your computer's web browser to your iPhone and iPad.
First, you must head to Handoff's website and download the extension for your web browser of choice (Safari, Firefox, or Chrome). Once you're all set up, you're ready to start sharing web pages, maps, phone numbers, selected text, and more between your devices.
When you send an item to your iPhone and iPad, you can receive a push notification on said device for quick accessibility to that item. You can also set up Handoff to open other apps when receiving a push notification. These apps include Safari (and some other web browsers), YouTube, Maps, iTunes, App Store, Articles (for Wikipedia), IMDB, Yelp, and Twitter.
Anyone else have any App for That suggestions for Jonathan? Let him -- and all of us -- know.
