SendTab offers a way to send links between your iPhone and personal devices, instantly.

After gaining popularity as a Chrome and Safari browser extension, SendTab has recently become available in the iPhone app store. SendTab allows users to instantly send links from their computer to their iPhone and vice versa. It’s the only two-way app of its kind.

In 2011 people find themselves juggling multiple personal devices - iPhones, laptops, tablets, and work computers. Sharing information between those devices is a complex multi-step process that involves copying, pasting, and emailing links to oneself. Now, a new service called SendTab allows the wireless transmission of a link instantly between devices.

Send Links
In recent years 20-somethings have replaced the traditional television and cable set-up in favor of a living room computer. In addition to the mouse and keyboard, people can now use their phones or personal computers with SendTab to control their living room computer, like a remote control, sending interesting links or videos to the big screen for the whole family to view.

Receive Links
SendTab is also helpful when moving away from the personal computer to a mobile iPhone. Users in need of directions can send a map they’ve loaded on their laptop directly to the Google Maps app with the press of a button. Users can send a news article to their iPhone from their work computer to finish reading on the bus on the way home from the office.

SendTab iOS has a few unique features not present in other clients. Users can set up favorites to send sites they use frequently. Google Maps open up in the Maps app and YouTube videos in the YouTube app when sent to the iPhone. Users can even send links to apps or music in the iTunes store. Additionally, users are able to view which of their devices are currently online and ready to receive tabs.

The service is free and registration requires only the users email and password. Setting up a SendTab network between devices takes only a minute. Now available in the iPhone App Store.
