Chrync, syncing Chrome bookmarks to your Windows Phone

Chrync is a nifty Windows Phone app that lets you sync your Chrome Browser bookmarks to your Windows Phone. The app doesn't require any special extensions for your PC browser and speaks to Chrome through Google servers over a secure link.

Key features include:

  • Support for syncing encrypted bookmarks
  • Support for syncing passwords
  • Automatic syncing when logging in
  • Pinning of Bookmarks and Folders
  • Sharing of bookmarks

Chrync is fairly easy to use. When you first launch Chrync you will need to sign into your Google or Chrome account and choose your sync options. From there, the app syncs your bookmarks, history and open tabs and spreads them out by category in panoramic fashion. Tapping and holding a bookmark or folder brings up a pop-up menu with options to pin or share the item. Tapping a bookmark will launch IE to that URL.

If you use Chrome and need an easy, straight forward way to sync your bookmarks to your Windows Phone...Chrync is definitely worth a try. There is a fully functional trial version available (comes with prompts to buy the full version) to let you try before you buy. The full version of Chrync is running $.99. You can find it all here at (opens in new tab) the Windows Phone Marketplace.

  • Nice app! Very Useful
  • What about for us IE users?
  • Awesome!
  • For us Opera users, there's Opera Link for WP7:
    Just updated too! :-)
  • What about IE users?
  • Great. Now we can sync bookmarks on our phones with every major desktop browser out there.....except for MS's own IE! WTH?!?
  • +1
  • Simply awesome!
  • I'm guessing we'll see this feature in WP8, because it apparently relies on dual cores and what not to do some sort of bookmark sync according to Microsoft *Sarcasm*. This feature is already found in Windows 8, so that's why I think we can safely assume it will make it to WP8, and hopefully 7.8 as well. I don't see how we can't just use Skydrive to do something like this.

  • I'd like one for Firefox. I have "send to wp7" and I use that almost daily. Great to get a site from your computer to you phone without using email.
  • Hey how to get one of those cool WPCentral tape measures !!?
  • Naw, I'll stick w/ IE9...
  • ..Synced about 1/10 of my bookmarks only. Hope an update fixes this.
  • I've not had this reported before.  Could you sign out and try again?  If it still happens please report it via and I'll work with you to get it resolved.

  • I'd rather have alternative browsers such as Opera, Mozilla and Chrome available. Why is WP so closed up? The generic browser is good, but full of limitations. I really want something awesome
  • Great app, works perfectly, really useful...Thanks!!
  • Chrome sucks IE FTW!
  • I have recently shifted to Windows from Android. I have Lumia 1320. Windows 8.1 do not has Google Chrome. This made me try syncing the bookmarks from Chrome to IE 11. I tried a lot of times but it keeps asking for a chrome password and do not accept it when I know the password is correct. PLease help as this is really frustrating. I tried uninstalling the app and did the same procedure to sync the bookmarks after reinstalling it but it didn't work again. Please help.
