Google Chrome now available for the iPhone and iPad

By , Jun 28, 2012

Well, that’s a headline that’s been a long time in the making. Google Chrome is now officially available on some App Stores — including the US App Store.

You can download Google Chrome here.

Google Chrome for iOS is a universal app for the iPhone and the iPad, and both versions cater to each device’s form factor. As a Chrome desktop user, the biggest highlight for me is the ability to sync bookmarks and tabs between all devices…

Chrome on iOS makes this a snap, and that’s really just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the amount of features it offers on both devices.

Have you downloaded Chrome for iOS yet? If so, please share your experience below. We’ll be back later with a full hands-on with the highly anticipated browser as well.

      “If you have a Danish iTunes account, you can download Google Chrome here. Otherwise, you’ll have a to wait a bit longer for stores in your region to get their respective version.”

      Do you have a Danish iTunes account?
      If yes, then I’m not sure.
      If no, then I have to ask… did you even read the two sentences in the post?

      • MrShutEmDown

        you do realize those were just changed into the post though, you do know that right?
        Dont be so rude next time.

        This is the original text that went up with the post:

        “Well, that’s a headline that’s been a long time in the making. Google Chrome is now officially available on some App Stores — the link below is to the Danish App Store, thanks to MacStories for the link — and it’s a free download for iOS users.

        If you have a Danish iTunes account, you can download Google Chrome here. Otherwise, you’ll have a to wait a bit longer for stores in your region to get their respective version.

        If that’s the case, I apologize, but still try to be a little nicer.

      • tturner23

        I didn’t think it was that rude but I’ll try to dial it down.

    It’s available in US, but searching for “Google Chrome” nor “Chrome” nor “Google” found it. I wen to the page for Google Search and then clicked on the link for the developer page and there it [Chrome] was.

    • KewlDewd

      It’s a bit buried, but I found it with a search.

  • Metroview

    Now we just need an update for Browser Changer on Cydia to support Google Chrome. Can’t wait to see what other tweaks come out for this.

    • http://www.facebook.com/lucas.kunert Lucas Kunert

      I went and re-downloaded it earlier to get ready for that update.

    I got it on US only clicking the button here on the post.

    Google chrome is 150% better and faster than Safari. Sooo Amazing!:) I’m gonna move Safari to another location and possibly make Chrome my default browser.

    • billypuntove

      I love Chrome but there’s not way you can say that about its speed. I’ll use it if I see that it gets close now that I’m testing it but I really doubt they can do that when they can’t use iOS nitro javascript engine.

  • tward09

    Is anyone else having trouble signing in to this? It keeps telling me my account sign-in details are out of date. I literally just changed my password.

      Same problem.

    • http://www.facebook.com/WhistlePigger Anthony Giesbrecht

      I had the same problem, but I managed to make it work now. All I had to do was sign into my desktop Chrome browser. Not through gmail or anything, but through the browser itself. Click on the settings button in the top-right corner of the browser window, and click on sign in. Everything worked on my IOS Chrome as soon as I did that.

    • http://www.facebook.com/dae.soto Dae Soto

      how do i get it in the us app store ? i cant find it!

  • Daniel

    Tried it. It’s no better than Safari.

    • Joe Leonardo

      Try using it for more than 30 seconds.

  • http://twitter.com/CokerGerald Gerald Coker

    it looks like so many people are downloading this right now am one of them :)

  • Kok Hean

    Screw iOS 6 iCloud syncing, I’m downloading this on iOS 5.1.1. I’m not going to sacrifice my jailbreak.

    One benefit that no one seems to be talking about is the ability to play background audio. For example if you open up a tab in safari and play a YouTube video, then navigate to another tab in safari, the video stops playing. If you open up a YouTube video in chrome, then navigate to a new tab, the video keeps playing. I love this feature.

    • billypuntove

      Nice!
      I guess no one’s encounter that specific situation but that is nice!

    • http://twitter.com/HavidTweets Havid

      But you can’t switch tabs while playing a video!?

  • http://twitter.com/beluM Belu

    The only thing missing is to hide the address bar when you start scrolling, like safari. That way you get full screen.

    • http://www.facebook.com/lucas.kunert Lucas Kunert

      Safari isn’t fullscreen. You still have the bottom bar in Safari vs. Chrome just has the top bar w/o a bottom bar instead… same screen real estate really.

    Better!!!safari killer!!!!!

  • smtp25

    1st impressions – don’t like it, well the keyboard that is, standard is much better .. I don’t live in the US so .CO.NZ is used much more than just .COM

    ATOMIC BROWSER FTW! – seriously much better than Safari and on first impressons Chrome. FWIW I do use Chrome on my laptop

  • Donald Smith

    I love it for the iPad. The one for the iPhone isn’t worth switching from Safari, in my opinion. Also, its impossible to find it in the app store without the link on this page.

  • Marc Robbins

    If you have the ‘sign in’ issue – disable ‘Password Syncing’ – this should fix the issue for now.

    BrowserChooser by Ryan Petrich is up on Cydia for free and has support for choosing Chrome as a default!

    Love the Chrome. Is there a way to make it the default browser yet?

  • Appletiser

    finally managed to download from uk app store and sign in straight away, no problems :)

  • hkpuipui99

    Tried that. Didn’t work. Weird thing is the bookmarks from my desktop Chrome got ported over to my iPhone, but it still says the same error…

  • Jessica Behrman

    My Chrome icon turned grey and I cannot figure out how to fix. I can’t delete it or open it from the icon. I saw that another person posted the same problem on another forum but there were no responses. I *can* open the app from my App list though. Thoughts?
