  2. Great stuff guys. Will sync between mobile safari bookmarks and xmarks be possible?

  3. Neato!

    Small bug: on the open tabs page, if you can't reach the host for a given tab, you end up on a "Can't reach host" screen from which there is no UI escape.

  4. Happy user of Xmarks here. Some minor quibbles, but this is a real boon for a multi-device life. Have the app on my iPod Touch, am wondering how to get it to update/sync with the Xmarks 'home' server. Thanks for help U can provide.

  5. Figured out how to get Xmarks for iPod Touch to sync. (Question of 7 Aug.) You have to log in from the 'account settings' page each time you use it or want your Touch-based version to sync changes from Xmarks.

    In future versions, perhaps a 'sync' button similar to browser-based Xmarks?

  7. Also awaiting an Xmarks client for Android - the existing bookmark managers are not very good

  8. Thanks all for the feedback and bug reports. We're listening.

    A new version has already been submitted to Apple that fixes many of the bugs you found and adds automatic background sync to retrieve changes to your bookmarks. Sync between Xmarks and Mobile Safari bookmarks is not allowed by Apple (that's why we built a browser into our Xmarks iPhone app) - you'll have to petition Apple to open Safari up.

    An Android version is working on our lab table... getting closer to release. Hang in there!

  9. You need to be able to import Xmarks bookmarks into Safari. It should replace the Safari bookmarks. I don't want two browsers open.
