Unintuitive Setup Process But Does Work
When you go through the demo, be sure to do the example at the end when told to try sending a web page to your PC. After tapping the up icon, scroll over to where it says More. Tap More. Look for Continue on my PC and move the slider. On your PC, a message inviting you to continue will slide in on the bottom right of the screen. Click on it and the page you were on will appear on your PC. It’s a shame the visual examples during the walk through after install go through their animations so quickly that you can’t tell what to do.
Works As Advertised! Perfectly. Read the instructions
Step 1. Go to Start>Settings >Phone>Enter your phone number without dashes and send link to get app.
Step2: Follow app to App Store. Automatically you will be directed to Continue on PC. Download it.
Step3: open browser on PC
Step4: open website on iPhone
Step5: Press middle button on control row to bring up functions.
Step6: Select Continue on PC from top row on far left.
Step7: Continue on PC will search for available PC’s WILL find one and ask if you want to continue now or later. Your choice. You might as well select now since you went through all these steps. You might as finish the job.
Step8: Your iPhone’s current webpage will magically appear on the browser that you already opened on your PC. Just open it to a Home screen, any one will do, besides it’s going to change in less than a minute.
So there you have it. All of you one star reviewers can follow these steps and make this app work as it was designed to work. Graceful and simple and straightforward. The melding of OS’s. Steve Jobs would be spinning in his grave if he knew this was happening to his beloved OS. Cheers, it’s time for a beer.
Doesn’t work but other reviewers are stupid
This app doesn’t work. Period. However, the ‘Continue on PC’ feature has been integrated into Microsoft Edge
The user who is all bent out of shape about having to sign into their MS account because the same functionality could be achieved using a local device... Please explain how. This service (in Edge, not the app) works by assigning an ID number to a user and their session, which is handled in the cloud. When you send a session from one device to another, the system uses that ID# to restore the session on another device. You can’t do this with local accounts. Tell me how a local account on a phone and a local account on a PC are supposed to be connected?
To the user saying they were lead to believe you could answer calls and text using this app, well, you are just plain stupid. It doesn’t say anywhere that that functionality exists with this app.
