Send Links from Google Chrome to iPhone with this Free Extension

Google provided a very useful functionality in Android through the Chrome to Phone extension for Android phones which lets you send links, text, phone numbers or map locations to your phone directly from your browser. An alternative extension is now available called Google Chrome to iPhone which lets you send web pages without even having to buy or install an app on your iPhone.

The extension is very simple to install and use. Just head over to this link to install the extension in Google Chrome. Then go to the options of Google Chrome to iPhone and add your iOS device by typing in the URL shown ( it will be unique for everyone ) on Mobile Safari [1.
