Sync for Chrome

Chrome Sync makes it easy to access Chrome bookmarks, opened tabs and browsing history on your iOS or Android devices.

This is for Chrome Sync v2.0+. From v2.0, we have introduced an major update to the core logic of the sync process, and we are no longer maintaining the old ones, thus please make sure you are using the latest version of mobile apps and Chrome extensions. One simple rule: always use the latest possible app/extension you can find on this page, and make a clean install if something doesn’t work. If you still have trouble with setting up, please don’t hesitate to contact us on: apollo-sync-support AT ihanghai.com

    

We are serious about your privacy, the syncing process is encrypted and all your data are stored in your own Google Drive account to ensure safety, using an app only private folder.

Tutorial of setting up your Chrome browser on PC/Mac

  1. Dear Apollo Browser,

    Following up on my inquiry of September 27th below. Please respond, I do not want to go through the procedures you outline only to obliterate the Chrome history on my iPhone. I want my iPhone Chrome history transferred to my PC. Please respond.

    Dear Apollos Browser,

    I purchased your Chrome Sync Pro for my iPhone 5S from App Store and read through your set up and watched the video:

    http://apollobrowser.wordpress.com/chrome/

    And I have 2 questions.

    First, at Step 4 it says:

    “Kindle Fire(Android) app walking through”

    I do not see an analogous setup for iPhones am I just missing it?

    And secondly, it step 6 under the Android section, so I don’t know if this holds for the iPhone it says:

    “6. If you complete the above steps successfully, the sync process will start automatically, and your bookmarks from your PC Chrome browser will show up here.”

    That is exactly the opposite of what I am wanting to do, I was hoping to be able to Sync my iPhone search history to my Laptop, not the other way around. Is there a way to accomplish this, if so can you please tell me how step-by-step.

    Best,

  2. Any plans to add to Chrome Sync Pro the ability to sort the list of bookmarks 1) date added, 2) alphabetically and 3) link address ?

    Thanks!

  3. I loved as much ass you’ll receive carried out right here.
    The sketch is tasteful, your authored material stylish.
    nonetheless, you command get bought an nervousness over that
    you wish be delivering the following. unwell unquestionably cokme more formerly again as exactly tthe same nearly a lot often inside case you shield this increase.

  4. The other day, while I was at work, my cousin stole my iPad and tested to see if it can survive a
    40 foot drop, juat so she can be a youtube sensation. My iPad is now broken and she has 83 views.
    I know this is competely off topic but I had to share it with someone!

  5. I was having the same problem. I disabled other extensions and then it works as you describe. I don’t know which extension it is having problems with. Here’s the list: ADBLOCK, AVIRA BROWSER SAFETY, DISCONNECT, POCKET, GOOGLE CAST, GOOGLE DOCS. I am guessing it is one of the first three.

    • i wonder if there’s an ip or a url you could add to the adblock whitelist to prevent this? hopefully the developer will weigh in. /guy

    • I am back to having the same problem so I reset google using the reset button in advanced settings – All extensions removed. After enabling apollo sync, I get the problem even in this configuration. I guess the best I can do is disable apollo sync extension and enable it when I want to sync bookmarks. :(

    • I think I found the solution. You have to disable “phishing and malware protection” in Google Chrome (Advanced Settings – Privacy) to get rid of the recurring pop up message to allow offline sync. This makes me wonder…

      • not doing that unless someone has an excellent rationale for it. i’ve disabled the apollo extension until there’s a solution or a workaround.

      • Hi,

        Sorry for the late response.

        After weeks of tracking, we have just found the bug related to this issue, please update to latest version of the extension, which should be 2.1.1 now.

        Thanks.

  6. the extension is opening a new tab up to a dozen times per day and forces focus to itself asking to sync. is this expected behavior? thanks, /guy

  7. Hi guys,

    The google extension is apparently working well (latest successfully sync time is ok) but when I open my ios Chrome sync pro app, there is no bookmarks, no history, no tabs. Any solutions?

    Thx

  8. Works fine for me. Thanks! One issue – when loading the kindle app, it says to go to “chrome.apollobrowser.com” for more info. I wasn’t able to get to that page, but had to find these instructions after going to your home page.

  9. I am trying to sync this with my kindle fire. It keeps coming up with the following message:

    Data sync failed, no data found, pc extension is installed and working?

    What does this mean? Please help!

    • Hi, Sally,

      I have just registered a new Google account to test the sync suite, it is working as expected. Could you please check and make sure the following things are working:

      1. Both the extension and app are using the same Google account, and have been successfully authorized.
      2. You should see the latest successfully synced time on PC Chrome extension, as this one here(after entering extension management page, it is on the “option” page of the extension): http://apollobrowser.files.wordpress.com/2014/07/6.png If not, the PC extension is not working as expected.

      You can also send feedback email to us: apollo-sync-support AT ihanghai.com
