Text This To Me For Chrome Sends Links And Notes To Your Phone

Chrome: Text This To Me is a Chrome add-on that allows you to quickly send yourself SMS messages from your browser with links, notes and other snippets of text with a single click. Whether you just want to send yourself a URL to open on your phone's browser, or you want to remind yourself to pick up the milk on the way home, Text This To Me gives you a quick way to do it without installing anything on your device.

If you don't have a smartphone, or don't want to install an app on your phone for the few times you may need to send something to your phone from your browser, Text This To Me can be helpful. Once installed, just click the icon in your toolbar to send your message. You only have to enter your phone number once, and the add-on automatically adds the URL of the site you're on to your message. Add whatever text you'd like and click send.

Text This To Me is no replacement for something more robust like previously mentioned Chrome to Phone, or a platform that syncs notes to the cloud, like Evernote or SpringPad, but it does make the process quick and easy without the need for an app on your phone, or even a smartphone at all.

    Whats the point of putting this on Lifehacker Australia, is US & Canada only!

      Looks like a great add-on; John is right - anything like this that can be used in Australia?

        Did some digging myself and found a couple of alternatives. "Site to Phone" does a similar job & works in Australia, as does "Pastefire". I'm finding Pastefire the most flexible and easiest to use (your mileage may vary).
