ChromeMarks allows you to sync your desktop Chrome bookmarks to your Android
If you're a dedicated Chrome browser user and you cannot live without your bookmarks, why don't bring them everywhere? ChromeMarks is an app that sync your desktop Chrome bookmarks to your Android device. No need to repeat the process manually. Just check out that you're signed in your Android device with the same gmail account of your desktop browser. Then launch the app: it will automatically sync bookmarks. That easy.
From settings you can choose the account to sync, set back button behaviour, change theme and many other. Some advanced settings are only available in the paid version. Actually the Lite version is read only. If you want to copy your bookmars into your stock browser you'll have to upgrade.
We would say that layout could be improved, however, it doesn't really matter in this kind of apps. What matters is if it does what it says, and that's the case. Recommendable.
Google have started disabling sync access from any apps that are not explicitly created by Google.
If you are getting "error 500" messages, you could try and put the app back to using the Android Account for authentication and you might get some more syncs out of it. But if Google have *explicitly* disabled api access from any app that doesn't have "Google" in the name, then I don't think it will take long before all other methods used by CMarks are similarly detected and rejected.
Please don't ask me if there are other ways to keep syncing - if there were, you'd be using it now.
If you have the Full app, use CMarks to manually backup your bookmarks to an html file or a pdf on Google Drive and then use either the html or your Drive account as your browser's homepage - at least then you should still see your current set of bookmarks. If your browser doesn't have that ability, I can't help there!
If you purchased the app any-time after GMT Midnight 1st April 2013 then I am willing to offer a refund - email me your original order number from your purchase or the email address you used to purchase from. I can't offer refunds for any longer - I've already allowed more than the mandatory 15 minutes refund window by two weeks out of the kindness of my own pocket and Google would agree that 15 minutes is more than enough for all refunds.
Thanks for all the support over the last two and a half years - it's been fun!
16th April 2013: This app is no longer being maintained.
Good app when I had no other option on my n1
Even when Google requires the developer to jump through hoops, he can still keep up. Great job doing what Google should have offered long ago. Lastly, if you're only using the "Lite" version of this app, you're missing out. Lots. Plunk down the 2 bucks and be happier. The developer did a great job at explaining the process of getting an API key and many thanks go out for the excellent documentati
Dev very helpful...Thanks
I have an HTC Evo 4G...this Client ID and API stuff is too confusing. Is there another way to sync w/out going through all of this mess?
Thanx for making the API K keys registration and guide as easy as possible! All done now and hopefully Google leave things alone......
