Do you update it?

@mikol, did you just miss to update SendToPhone in the Jolla Store (v2.1-2 is the latest available version there as of 2018-07-08) or is v2.1-4 solely available at OpenRepos for a reason?

Very handy application!

Would it be easy/possible to have file upload/download ?

very nice start, thanks for this :) it's like a "micro blackberry blend".

if you look fo somebody to polish the web-ui... just send my a mail.

wanted feature list:

- automatic loading of content (bookmarks, contacts,...) by clicking on the menu entry

- email, message, calendar access

This app is great, but if there is no internet connection, it doesn't work! :(   I'm in my home network (wifi +adsl), when adsl go down, I can ssh on my jolla from my pc (they are in the same network), but this app doesn't work!  That's a pity.

Thanks for your comment. It is a bug. I'm working on update right now, so definitely it will be fixed in upcoming release.

Is it possible to have the server run on sharing mobile data connection through WLAN? I would love to have access to it on the go on my laptop without any intermittend AP necessary. Other than that this is the single most useful interface I have to my phone :-) Great work!

mkiol's picture

The latest version (2.1-2) supports connection when phone is sharing Internet to your laptop (WiFi tethering).

MoritzJT's picture

Would it be feasible to provide a simple import / export feature that lets us edit the browser bookmarks in a text file or similar?

mkiol's picture

Just to keep you informed. Latest version (2.1-2) has the option to download/upload bookmarks with a single file.

mkiol's picture

It's definitly doable. If you just want to have a file interface, so the easiest way would be to manual edit /home/nemo/.local/share/org.sailfishos/sailfish-browser/bookmarks.json. That file stores all sailfish-browser bookmarks.

Works no more with 2.0-1 and chromium on windows. The app is getting lots of unknown requests from my IP

be sure to checkout pbcopy for background clipboard access

mkiol's picture

Thanks for the report. New verson 2.0-3 is just uploaded. Hopefully bug is fixed.

MoritzJT's picture

Appears fixed. Thanks for the rapid response!

This really has potential now ;-)

MoritzJT's picture

Wow, the new webbased approach including notes - especially the edit notes part is pure gold! Thank you so much :-)

MoritzJT's picture

Hey there, is there any chance for a chromium addon too?

Thank you so far :-)

Nice app, works fine. But the Add-on should be signed, otherwise it will stop working after Firefox 41.

mkiol's picture

Good news! Yesterday my preliminary review request has been approved. Now, add-on is signed and will appear in search results on AMO.

Please, install signed version form


mkiol's picture

Unfortunately it's not so simple. Since February, add-on is waaaaiting to be preliminary reviewed. I'm guessing it is too niche and none of the AMO reviewers wants to touch it :-(

timmyneun's picture


Sorry to hear that. Mozilla have a service for a automated review without upload on AMO. Isn't it possible to do that and host it here on openrepos until the regular review is done?

great app, "get data from phone´s clipboard" works not every time, mostly i have to put the app on the phone in foreground and then it works not all the time. the rest options are working continuos.


mkiol's picture

Unfortunatly "get data from phone´s clipboard" works only when app is foreground. This is something that I didn't figure how to solve yet :-(

If you "Qt-aware", I'm using QClipboard and It seams that new clipboard data is available for the app only when it gets to foreground.

I can't download the firefox addon, it always states that "it appears to be corrupt" :/

mkiol's picture

I have installed it on few machines and diffrent OSes and didn't experience any problem. I have no idea what could be wrong. Maybe try xpi file from my github:

This is something I've been waiting for.

I don't use Mozilla, so I wrote a little Python script to send url's and text. It works at least on Linux with Python 3.3.

Edit the file with your address that Send to Jolla shows, put it in your $PATH and open <url>

or text "<text to send>"
mkiol's picture

Great idea! It is very useful tool and works perfectly well.

Nice app. 

I was just thinking why not creating something that is more widely supported by different plattforms. Just like pushbullet. 

If you find time creating a client for this I would really appreciate it.

Absolutely perfect!
