Neato! even more so--now supports sending links from Pre/Pixi to desktop

webOS developer Geoff Gauchet, aka Zhephree, has been very busy of late. Not only has he recently updated his Foursquare application with new functions and bug fixes, but he just released the latest version of his link/page sharing app Neato! with a brand-new feature: it now allows users to send a link from their Pre or Pixi to the desktop, in addition to the desktop-to-smartphone option it previously allowed.

Sending a file is fairly simple. According to the in-app instructions:

To send to your computer, make sure you open neato! URL on your computer's web browser (it looks like this: http://zhephree.com/neato/id/a1b2c3 and you can get it by tapping "View Link and Info".) Once the web page is open on your computer, tap the "Send to Computer" button in the app on your phone and enter some text or a URL!

As a reminder, to grab the URL of a Web page you are browsing on your Pre, scroll to the top of the page, and tap the page name above to turn it into a highlighted URL. Copy the URL (Edit-->Copy in the application menu, or by tapping and holding the gesture area while typing C on the thumbboard), and it is placed on the device's clipboard, ready to be pasted into neato! (or any other document or screen).

Download Neato!
