App simply does not work. It asks for my google password, but the links never arrive on my phone. Yes I have Froyo and have the apk installed on my phone correctly.

I agree with others, if it isn't working, what exactly *is* it doing with our usernames and passwords?

Your logon details are secure. They are only used to logon to the chrometophone appengine server. This results in a cookie being stored on your computer which controls all verification after logon.

It is a documented issue that sometimes the link does not arrive immediately (http://code.google.com/p/chrometophone/issues/detail?id=67)
This addon works in the same way as the chrometophone extension for Chrome.

Our most recent version has a revised login mechanism which displays the AppEngine login page. If you wish to try the new version it is available at https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/161941/versions while it is being reviewed.

The code for this extension is open source and you are welcome to review it if you have any concerns about security, however we once again assure you, your username and password are not being compromised.

Brilliant app. Works perfectly now (please ignore my help request - suddenly started working). LOVE IT! Thank you so much for developing this! Pure genius. I will have to demonstrate this for my students in Design Technology (middle schoolers).

Works great, thanks dev! This extension does exactly what it should. Haven't tested it with maps yet.

This doesn't work. I'm logged in to google, I've got the apk installed and registered on the phone. When I hit the Send to Phone button, it asks for login details but never succeeds.

As far as I'm concerned, this app is phishing everyone's password.

Login

I find this review highly offensive.

You are unable to use the support link to request for help, you don't provide any info about what kind of account do you have (as it's stated repeatedly that the system doesn't accept Google Apps accounts), and just because you don't know how to get help you state something so serious as that this is a phising extension!!!

The source code is available, you can review it and adjust it to your needs. Even if you don't trust the server application, you could place your own one and set the URL in the preferences of about:config.

Repeat: I'm really offended by your statement. It seems that spending the time to code something that can be used by other people is not enough and now we also have to deal with crap like this.

Can't login Rated 1 out of 5 stars

I've tried 0.8 and 0.9. In both cases the login always fails.

In 0.8 it popped up a little window to login. In 0.9 it opens a new tab. Both fail. Already logged-in to iGoogle/Gmail/... anyway.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.9). 

login problems

In 0.9:
What do you mean with "fails"?
Does it say that the login isn't correct?
Does it say that it's correct but ask you to login again?
Are you using a Gmail account or Google Apps for your Domain?
Does the Chrome extension work?
Have you tested in a new Firefox profile?

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Perfect. This is possibly one of the most innovative features in Froyo! And thanks to you I can use it with my fav browser.

One Request: Right now, if I login using credentials 'A' for Send-To-Phone (STP)... and then later, I go to Gmail and login with credentials 'B', STP stops sending the links, since the credentials have changed. Can you please add a feature that the login I use for STP is independent of the login that I use in the browser. The reason is I use one account for my browser as standard and another account for Android phone. Basically, can STP store the credentials independent of whats there in the Browser cookie? Thanks.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.9). 

Suggestion Appreciated

Thanks for the suggestion, this functionality is in the chrometophone roadmap however will not be implemented for the foreseeable future.
We currently use the browser for authentication as it is the most secure method, however going forward chrometophone will move to oAuth authentication and hopefully at that stage multiple logons will be allowed.
Google are also looking at allowing multiple logins to the same service in the one browser. ( http://www.theregister.co.uk/2010/07/14/google_multiple_account_signin/ )

Login failure Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Same 0.8 "Data isn't correct" issue as others.
0.9 opens new tab, i attempt login, i get a system notification that i've logged in, but the window refreshes (with my google account pre-set) asking for my password again. No dice.

FF 3.6.6 on linux.

Tested on linux

The extension was build on FF for Linux so it should be ok.
Could you confirm if you are using a Google Apps account or a *@gmail.com address?

FF4 ! Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Hi,
can you update the addon to allow ff 4.0b ?

@Cody Turner : For 3G connection : the phone receive the notification at next http poll. Wake up your phone, start a browser, you'll get the notification ;)

4.0b

Done, the maximum allowed here is 4.0b2pre.
Please, let us know if you notice any problem with that version.

Works with Wi-Fi, not 3G? Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Great program and identical to Chrome's version, except for one thing - only works when the phone's using WiFi, it's not being pushed when 3G is on. This wasn't a problem when I used Chrome's version briefly (hated Chrome, came back to FF when I learned of this extension), what's the difference here?

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.8). 

no differences

If you used the Chrome extension only briefly then that's the reason why you didn't notice the problem, but there's no differences in that regards between both extensions. Once the data is sent to the server everything is the same and in the issue tracker of the project you can find some reports about people with this kind of problems using the Chrome extension.

my phone is registered but when i click send to phone button ther is a log in box. when i enter my data and press login nothing happens except the login button gettin grey

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.8). 

login problems

It might be a problem with the login process. You can try to use the context menu on the toolbar button and select "logout" and then try to send the message again.
If that still fails, you can try to clear all the cookies from google and then login again. I had some problems with the Google groups because it was in a redirection loop and clearing the cookies fixed it for me.
In the next version the login window will be removed to show again the Google login as requested by the ChromeToPhone developers.

register phone Rated 4 out of 5 stars

How do I register my phone? I get a message that says my phone is not registered when trying to send to my phone.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.8). 

It's already explained

You can read both in the explanation about how it works and also in other comments that you must install this app in your phone: http://chrometophone.googlecode.com/files/chrometophone-android.apk

Version 0.8 will open the download page if such error happens.

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This is great!

I am running into trouble with Firefox 3.5.9 on Fedora 12 where firefox will hang then crash after the alert notification disappears. This appears to be a bug with firefox itself (at least on Fedora 12), as I can reproduce the same hang/crash by executing showAlertNotification() in the error console. This can be worked around by passing a callback to showAlertNotification (I'm using an empty callback).

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.6). 

callback

Hi harkins

Thanks for the info.
I got one question, as most of the parameters of that function are optional and we aren't using it, can you check if you get a crash using just
showAlertNotification(image, title, text)

If that still fails, I guess that you are saying that this does work:
var listener = {
observe: function(subject, topic, data) { }
}
.showAlertNotification(image, title, text, false, '', listener);

Right?

Great addon!
However I do see the following error:
ERROR To remove this error message, please install latest extension from code.google.com/p/chrometophone

Its nothing actually, the addon still works 100%

Are you using the latest version?
That message shouldn't be shown since 0.4, except for the initial login

The added support for guessing the correct maps link seems to work nicely. Tried a few examples and it was correct in all of them. Nice work!

Works brilliantly Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Works brilliantly on N1. Couple with the phone .apk (see other posts). It works on maps great too, the main problem is that when you navigate from WITHIN maps it does not update the url string, which is what I gather is being sent to the phone. Haven't had any issues. Great job!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.4). 

Maps directions

As I replied yesterday to blunden, it's possible to use the context menu to send the correct data to the phone, but in the 0.5 I've added a patch to try to do it automatically. Let me know if now it works the way that you expect.

Will not put phone in 'bricked' state Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Not sure what the previous poster is talking about. This works brilliantly on the N1. All you need also is the Chrome to phone apk (http://chrometophone.googlecode.com/files/chrometophone-android.apk) also. And you're off.

Works great for links but not maps Rated 4 out of 5 stars

This extension works very well for sending links to your phone. However, sending a google maps link where you've done something like added two point and the directions between them won't get sent to the maps application as the official extension supposedly does (and they showed at Google IO). It will only start maps (I assume it only sends the link now). Can this feature be added or is it something lacking in Firefox?

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.4). 

Sending maps data

The Chrome extension only allows to send the current URL of the page, but the Firefox extension, besides the toolbar button, also allows to right click on only link or image and send it. So you just need to select the "Print - Send - Link" options at the top of the map and use the "Link" url with your phone.

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This does nothing by itself. In addition to having Android 2.2, you need to install the following apk on your phone:

http://chrometophone.googlecode.com/files/chrometophone-android.apk

Otherwise, it works GREAT. Click the phone icon, and about 5-10 seconds later, it's loading on my phone.
