Share a website [webOS phones] 4

Web dropdown menuIf you are reading a website that you want to share with your friends, you have a few methods to accomplish this. The most obvious, though somewhat manual, way is to highlight the URL of the website and then simply copy that website to the clipboard and then paste it in whatever application you want to use to share that site. On webOS phones, you will need to scroll all the way to the top of the website so the title bar on the top of the page appears for you to click on before you can copy the URL.

However, you can also quickly send an email with a link to the website along with a snapshot of the page (but not the entire page). You just need to swipe-down from the top-left of the screen to bring down the Application drop-down menu, choose "Page" and then choose "Share". A new email message will open up and all you need to do is enter an email address and send off the email.

So the best way is not to get in your car and/or plane and drive and/or fly over to your friend's place so that you can Touch To Share? :-)

oooh~Touch to share ~

and there is a nice Browser patch in preware that is extending this function to many other apps to share the link: Sharing Super Mix

e.g. 2.2.4 version:
http://patches.webos-internals.org/?do=browse&webosver=2.2.4&category=Br...

Very pleased with Sharing Super Mix, using Relog as a Read It Later client. I can share URLs between phone, tablet and PCs with ease. I share a common Read It Later account with my wife and trivially pass articles between us using that service. As an added benefit, the Read It Touch app on my TouchPad stores the articles in easily readable text-only mode for reading when away from broadband.... which, by the way, is far less frequent since installing the excellent Free Tether app via Preware. ...I could (probably should) go on for quite some time itemizing the superiority of various Preware apps and patches that literally gave life to my 2 Pre2s and two TouchPads.

Also praise for SplashTop that allows me to watch my Media Center PC from anywhere on my TouchPad .... who says you can't watch Netflix and Hulu on a TouchPad! ....seriously, I cannot understand how live video can be watched a remote virtual terminal. Never before have I seen that type of performance via Remote Desktop, even when the client and server were much more powerful.
