    This app brings the bookmarks of you Opera desktop browser right to you webos device. It uses the Opera link functionality to synchronize all your bookmarks between desktop and phone. It currently allows viewing and launching bookmarks, but has no editing features.

    I am searching for some Opera browser users to test this app before submitting it to the app catalog. Please send me a PM if you are interested in testing out this app and sending me feedback.

    How to use the App.

    1. Start Opera Browser on your PC and click on the cloud icon in the lower left corner.
    2. Click on "Enable Synchronization"
    3. If you do not have an Opera Link Account, create one. Otherwise enter your login data.
    4. Activate Synchronization of Bookmarks and wait a minute.
    5. Start the App on your phone and enter the same login data.
    6. Download the bookmarks
    7. Give the App a five star rating in the App catalog if you like it or contact me if you have any problems.

    I would like to help beta test. I just started using Opera at home on my PC and really like it.
    Due to the cancellation of the penny, I no longer give 2 about anything. I may however, give a nickel

    I am going to LOVE this app.

    It would be double awesome if you have the bookmark viewer in the catalog, but then also make a patch that will copy your Opera bookmarks to the native browser.

    Is this gonna be able to run with third party browsers like universe or just the stock browser?

    @rsanchez1 I thought about this but did't check out the possibilities yet. The biggest Problem is that the native browser does not support folders. Maybe I can work something out to synchronize speed dial with the native browser's favorites.

    @laingman Currently it uses the default browser. I'm currently checking out the possibilities to use universe as the target browser but it depends mostly on the universe browser.

    Universe supports folders, but for the native browser you can just copy all the bookmarks.

    What do you think about integrating my app in just type search, would that fit your needs better?

    That would be an ingenious addon i haven't even thought about yet.

    another nice feature could be a notification icon which allows you to quickly launch opera bookmarks from any (nonfullscreen) app.

    I want to thank all the beta testers for their work and ideas. The app finally got approved today and i have plans for updating some feature soon. Please let me know if you have any problems with the app or want to help me translate the description.

    Thanks for this app. Opera is hands down the best browser, and now I can sync my bookmarks between my PC, laptop and my phone. Awesome.
    Touchscreens are a fad.

    Version 1.2.0 almost ready for release, prepare for Just Type search, sort options and Touchpad compatibility.

    I live in a country with no access to the app catalog, is there a way for me to buy the app from you and load it myself using webos quick install? thanks

    What else does opera link support? What about history and notes.
  16.    #16  
    @jbadilla, sorry i can't do that. Can't you activate your device in an supported country? The App is globally available.

    @laingman, Opera Link offers some other options like notes and history. But in my opinion they are far less used and it is not feasible implementing them at the moment.

    The 1.2.0 is no available through the catalog.

    Remember that you have to activate the Just Type functions manually in the Just Type preferences if you want to use it.
