Chrome for iOS now Apple App Store’s baby

Google Chrome for iOS became an instant sensation, barely a day after Google released the app to Apple fanatics.

Chrome became the app store’s most downloaded free app on the iPad and the iPhone, and it doesn’t look like that trend might change for days.

Google Chrome is considered as one of the popular Internet browsers out there, as of the moment even trumping Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox in some states and countries.

Google Chrome’s biggest draw is the ability to sync tabs, passwords from your PC or notebook Chrome browser to other devices and bookmarks. This makes Internet browsing easier for you if you use multiple devices to access it.

But Apple isn’t ready to jump on the bandwagon yet, as the company doesn’t intend to change their default browser to the Chrome. That distinction is still being held by Apple’s very own Safari.

Although developer Jon Abrams created an iOS Safari bookmarklet to open pages in your Chrome browser.

Create a bookmark in Safari for the following address: javascript.location.href=”googlechrome”+location.href.subsstring(4);

You can name the bookmark “Open in Chrome.” When you select it, it will open your current Safari page in Google’s browser.

Google Drive and Chrome now available for iOS

Users of iOS devices such as iPad, iPhone and iPod can now use Google’s cloud storage service, Google Drive, and Google’s browser, the Google Chrome.

During the annual developer conference of Google, the company announced that both the Google Drive and Chrome are going to invade Apple devices.

Vice president of Chrome, Briand Rakowski, demoed the Chrome browser on iOS devices. This includes synching settings from a multiple devices.

Google also announced that the Google Drive, which enables individuals to store files and share documents via cloud, is now up and running for iOS devices.

Director of product for Google Apps Clay Bavor said, “We brought many of the best features of Drive to mobile.”

According to CNET, Bavor presented during his keynote address was the ability of images to be scanned and stored as PDF files in Google drive and the best thing is that they are searchable.

Google’s browser, the Chrome, is considered by many as the best browser out there in the market. Being a light on your system, it doesn’t slow your PC or laptop.

If Google can bring this to the Chrome for iOS devices, then this would be surely a hit to Apple fanatics!
