How many times have you been to a website on your computer, and wanted to visit it on your phone to download something, but the URL was so long to type out on your phone that you gave up and didn’t bother with it?
This little app by Craig Baker makes it easy to push the URL right to your phone.
Just download the app from the market, install, and run it. Then visithttp://www.urlpusher.com/ on your computer. You will be instructed to enter the five letter/number combination which appears on your phone when you start the app into the boxes on the website.
A little link the developer calls a bookmarklet will appear on the website, and you will be instructed to drag it to your browser’s toolbar. Whenever you get to a site you want to visit on your phone, just open the browser on your phone, click the “push:to:mobile” link on your computer browser’s tool bar, and your phone will automatically browse to that URL..
It’s fast, and simple, and so is the developer’s website. I think it will be great when I want to download a ROM or a non market app to my phone rather than downloading it to my computer, then transferring it to my sd card. The developer recommends using it for YouTube videos and maps.
This review is fast and simple, just like the app, but there isn’t much more to say, other than it works well!
