Doubt, moving from iPhone to Android (Notes, Tabs Sync)

Hello all,

So, i have an iphone, ipod (mostly for developer), ipad, mbp... and i love the Tab/Notes sync feature.

The problem is that i will change my phone and i'm looking at the new Sony.

I "googleit" already and i can't find any info. How can i sync my Tabs "opera" to android and also the Notes? There is any app for that? I saw that you can sync with google gmail, but it's an one way sync.

Appreciate any help from iOS & Android users!

I'm not sure about syncing tabs on Opera, but if you use Chrome on your desktop and on your phone it syncs what tabs you have open across your devices.

Are you referring to the Opera browser? If so, Opera syncs across different devices. You just have to log in with your Opera account.

If i write a note using my iPad, ipod, iphone, mbp then it automatically upload to my gmail account (Sync) So i can share it.

But it's one way only, they don't sync back if you edit the note/delete from any device.

You can use Evernote to sync notes between Mac, IOS and Android.

I use Chrome browser and it allows me to use the same tabs over different devices.

Tabs and bookmark syncing can be done with both Chrome and Opera on Android, they will happily sync with their Mac equivalents. You can use Xmarks on your Mac to sync your Safari bookmarks with any other browser if you so desire, this way your bookmarks stay in sync no matter what browser you use. There are many browsers available on Android, the best include Chrome, Opera and Dolphin as well as the stock browser. If you wish to use Dolphin on your phone for example, they have a Chrome plugin available so you can sync your tabs with your Mac and vice versa.

As for Notes, theres lots of solutions. You could use Evernote as others have suggested, theres also Wunderlist which is a to-do list and note taking app for Mac, Windows, iOS and Android. Also you could use SimpleNote which is a free online note syncing service with many Android and Mac clients available for it.
