Pocket Favorites Syncs Your IE Bookmarks

Chapura has released Pocket Favorites, the first application that makes use of Palm Powered handhelds to synchronize the list of Web sites in Internet Explorer Favorites between multiple computers and lets customers launch these favorite Web sites automatically in their mobile Web browsers.

The reliable synchronization of Pocket Favorites makes it easy to maintain a single list of favorite Web sites in several places, and the seamless integration with built-in browsers on Web-enabled devices adds usability to this list on the handheld.

Chapura Pocket FavoritesKey Features of Pocket Favorites v1.0
Taking advantage of the Favorites productivity tool in Internet Explorer and the mobility of the handheld, Pocket Favorites offers immediate and easy access to important online information. At home, at work or on the go, customers can now do all of the following with the help of a single software application, Pocket Favorites:

  • Synchronize Internet Explorer Favorites list between 2 or more PCs, using a Palm Powered device as the go-between, for convenient one-click access to Web sites.
  • Employ the Internet Explorer Favorites list in Pocket Favorites on the handheld as a Web site launcher using the built-in browser.
  • Have the actual URLs of Favorites available for reference on the handheld, letting customers easily pull up the sites on PCs where they do not have links set up.

"Pocket Favorites meets the needs of Web-savvy individuals who want to maximize the mobile capabilities of their handhelds," says Keith Ellenberg, president and chief operating officer at Chapura. "With Pocket Favorites, we are re-setting customers' expectations of their handheld. PDAs are no longer just about storing information so it's available at all times. Customers are most relieved when they can use the information that is on the handheld in the same way it was intended to be used on the desktop."

Pocket Favorites is the second software utility from Chapura to integrate with Internet Explorer while synchronizing data with a Palm Powered handheld. Released in June 2004, TurboPasswords password manager includes an Internet Explorer plug-in that offers one-click access to Web sites listed in the encrypted TurboPasswords database and automatically fills in online login forms. The password-protected database synchronizes with Palm Powered handhelds to allow for convenient, easy and safe organization of passwords, PINs and other personal information.

Pocket Favorites is available for $14.95 [BUY]. There is no trial version, but Chapura offers a 30-day money-back guarantee.

One Step from Replacing AvantGo

twizza @ 4/12/2005 4:31:11 PM # Q
This is one step from replacing AvantGo and other offline readers in my opinion. I know that it is only favs, and I know that I have a ton that I carry with me. But in the interest of knowing what's going on, saving just the page that is listed in the favs would be a nice implementation of this kind of program.

Not Sure about 'first'

Benk's (RIP) "Netbook" did this as I recall (I had the software and it yeah--it did sync your favorates to an application on your palm).

URLSync + URLSync Desktop did this 6 years ago

I'm sure this app has a few new extra features, but URLSync has been a constant on all of my PDAs for years. Too bad it got pulled by the developer. It was the only good PDAToolbox app I've ever seen...

We did this in 2000 already

First one? I do not think so


We dissolved the company and donated all the code into open source.
www.sync2it.com is one of the people who picked it up.

Can you tap a link in that program on the Palm and have it launch on the Palm's browser (such as Blazer)?
