Intermittent server disconnections on the Chrome extension

Hey guys, I've been using this extension for years and absolutely love it. My use case for it is usually pulling up articles of interest from twitter/facebook/G+ and sending them to my PC to read later for when I have time to get to them. This app/extension is extremely underrated.

That being said, I seem to always have issues with the server disconnecting on the chrome extension, or connecting and dropping so fast its flickering from green to white. The workaround that always seems to work is right click -> manage -> uncheck to disable -> re-check, and it comes back green and connected. I do have two PC's set up for 2cloud with the same device name (so that articles get sent to whatever machine I happen to be closest to), maybe that has something to do with it? I don't really know how to debug this for you guys, just wanted to bring it to your attention and also ask another question...whats next for 2cloud? :) Keep up the great work!

    Hi there!

    Sorry for the delayed reply. The problem is, right now we don't support your intended use case. :-/ Connecting two instances of the Chrome extension will cause unpredictable behaviour--like disconnecting.

    The best suggestion I have for you, at the moment, is to give each extension a unique name and just send a link to both. Sorry. :( I'm working on a solution for this use case.

    What's next for 2cloud is... nothing and a lot of things. We're going to change the project a bit (we're considering moving away from the "2cloud" brand, as it is making some things tricky) and we're going to add a bunch of stuff. The same use cases will still be supported--you can still open a link in your browser from your phone--but you'll be able to do a lot more. Send links from a phone to a phone, or a phone to a tablet. Send links from your computer to another computer, or a phone or a tablet. Send files. All sorts of exciting stuff. :) I've been working on several implementations of these things for years now, and I'm finally in "sit down and ship" mode, so this will be my last rewrite. I still can't promise a timeline, but I hope you like it when it's released.

    Well, that explains it! I'll give my two PC's different names. I should have tried that at the start, to be honest.

    I love your idea about sending links between devices. I got my first tablet in the gingerbread era and I thought then as I do now that in the default "Share" menu I should see at the top a list of my devices to push data to. From my phone, share to Tablet, or to PC, etc. That was years ago. I doubt that feature gets added before Google finally fixes the whole android "device" issue. From what I can tell I have at least four places to manage my devices...Google Cloud Print, Google Play Music, Google Play Store, and Android Device Manager. There is no unified device dashboard to manage everything. Anyways, that's a whole separate deal that Google ought to work out.

    I just bought the donation app. Keep up the great work and I'm looking forward to what's to come!

    Dang...I set up each browser with a unique name but when I have "Silent Send" enabled, it will only send to the last PC I sent to with no option to select the other one. If I don't have silent send enabled, I have to manually type in the name of the other PC I want to send it to (my connected PC's aren't in a selectable box or anything). I think honestly it'd be easier to go back to how I had it set up with the intermittent disconnections.
