    like transfer my work flow? What I mean by that is does it transfer cards? Only one or multiple? I have seen the browser when it is open but what happens if I tap when it is in minimized card view. I think that would be most useful, more than just one browser

    Unfortunately it sounds like all tap to share does at the moment is send a URL for the open web browser page.

    It'd be nice if they make it do more though (ie, typing an email on my Pre, want to finish on the Touchpad, tap to share and finish it there.)

    If I have a file open on my tablet and a co-worker or someone wants a copy, it would be great to tap and share the file to them.

    It makes sense that they will open this feature up to do different things... print files (webos printers), share pictures, share music (if you own both devices), and hopefully they will give an API to developers.

    I think the problem here is it's been said the two devices have to be BT paired before tap to share works.

    i believe in the future it will be more robust, to include file sharing. right now url sharing was the only thing they were prepared to show... they probably wanted to keep many things close to the chest there are is still another 4-6 months before release...

    Tap to share looks awesome!

    I'm sure they've got plans for that.. Just will take a bit of time.

    anyone actually know how this technology works?

    I think they said the two devices need to be on the same palm profile. While the feature is currently really basic, I see it quickly growing. I also hope they'll let us sync two phones together in the future. So I can quickly give a link, or image to a friend.

    it probably does more than push a URL because it was passing phone calls around.

    I think tap to share and the phone call transferring thing are two entirely different features. I've definitely seen a video where someone from HP says that all it sends is the URL when you tap to share.

    But maybe I'm wrong on that and there's more to it. I mean you were at the event, you'd probably know better than I would.

    you are probably right. Tap to share is essentially wakiing up a radio when the touchstone back on the phone taps the button on the touchpad.

    the video you saw is all I saw because the calls were only demonstrated on the stage. I proobably assumed more was really happening when they did that.

    I don't know where I saw it, but I believe that it is not bluetooth - but inductive. Someones Tweet I think.

    I'm disappointed, I expected more from you! I don't care that you can't afford to buy one, you should still know this

    (yes, I realize how bad that was)

    There is a company TAT from sweden already bought by RIM who are still working on the FUture of the Screen Technology.

    Almost at the end of this video you can watch two guys sharing images using a mirror wi-fi screen technology. Before that you also can watch when two journalist colleagues sharing a image too, with just tap and swiveling it, in order the colleague next in front of her can see it and he turned it back to her just doing the same, like she did.

    Here the video:

    This technology is yet in R&D but will come sometime. I sent this video link via twitter to @philmckinney who is in charge of the screen display development ,I think in HP.

    I hope HP will come first than RIM but this last already is the owner of TAT who IMHO are very advanced in this R&D.

    Time will tell.

    I am trying to figure it out, how every app developer have to arrange some kind of code order to share from a bigger screen to a smaller one and viceversa, when the app is on card mode.

    We need a developer help here to have some suggestions possibilities for your request.

    Why do I need tap to share when Neato! works just as well for transferring links and interpreting them to open in their various apps?

    Also, on links: I thought there were separate webOS links that can actually open up apps with just a URL? (I'm not a developer, but I am pretty sure I've seen this done before?) So when they say just URL are they really just saying that, or are they saying "while it's just a URL webOS, can interpret it as more than a URL transferred over."?

    But two thumbs up for the neato! developer. Rest assured I will still be using neato! even though Tap to share may be cooler looking. neato! just rocks my socks off.

    First of all, having the functionality built into the OS is obviously better than having to keep a dashboard app running all the time.

    Second, Tap to Share is obviously going to encompass a lot more in the future. The spec leak we got indicated that sharing app status is on the road map and from my understanding, HTML5 allows this. Since all enyo apps run completely in a browser, it's not hard to see how it will be implemented. It may not even require developers to do anything at all.

    This is obviously where Tap to Share is going, otherwise there'd be no need for both devices to be on the same profile. Obviously link sharing is not a profile/security issue, but you'd need that if you were sharing app data to ensure someone doesn't "Tap to Share" an app onto the device of someone who hasn't bought that app.
