This app is annoying...but you can use Chrome extensions
THE GOOD: you can use Chrome extensions on iPad
THE BAD: after paying $4.99, the app constantly shows full screen ads on updating to the premium version for $1.99/mo! To use the extension, I believe you do not need to update to premium. However, each time you open the app you have to download the extension again...annoying!!
I use VirtualBrowser for Chrome to use the extension, Streak. The desktop version of Streak allows users to track when and where someone opens their email (as well as other useful email features). The app version of Streak does not have this tracking feature.
You must download an app called "Virtual Browser for Chrome" for $4.99. When in the app, go to the Chrome Store, search and download "Streak," go to your Gmail account, accept to use Streak and then you are able to use the the feature to track when and where someone opens your email just like on the desktop version.
WARNING: The app, Virtual Browser for Chrome is very annoying! Each time you open the app, you must go through the process of downloading the Streak extension again!!! It will also ALWAYS ask you to update to the premium version ($1.99/mo). I believe the Streak extension will always work without updating to premium.
Here's what you get for the $4.99 purchase price: a demo that runs for a very short time then quits. No worries though, you can relaunch it again, and again. Each launch opens an annoying help screen that should only open once.
An extra $1.99 a month gets you a premium mode that doesn't time out (for a month). This mode lets you run chrome apps, sort of. I couldn't get draw apps to draw. Familiar iOS features like touching the screen to get an insertion point don't work.
Both modes feature a virtual keyboard that. In some Chrome apps the virtual keyboard does not stay hidden. I couldn't get my Bluetooth keyboards to work.
Since the app requires access to its cloud server to work, a high speed Internet connection is a must.
So two stars is all I can give it. It works but you give up a lot of chrome functionality.
It is great to use this chrome browser app on my iPad, I can use flash player and useful Extensions as I use the chrome browser on my PC . I can sync my bookmarks, extensions to this browser with my google account. I can visit all websites. It is useful.
