MyxerMagic™ Web Extensions

MyxerMagic™ Web Extensions let you quickly send any image on the web directly to your mobile phone - right from the context menu of your favorite web browser!

  • Grab photos of friends and family from Facebook, Flickr, whatever. Better yet, grab photos of more attractive strangers from other places on the web.
  • Get the hottest celebrity shots from...wherever you surf! Don't hold your breath waiting for Bob Marley action shots to make it onto you carrier's deck.
  • Want album artwork from your favorite bands? It's waiting for you at their website or MySpace page.
  • Or, simply round out your stalker lifestyle by carrying around the MySpace profile picture of that hottie you almost asked out that one time but then, well, after that incident with the rabid poodle...

MyxerMagic is a feature of Myxer, so of course there's no charge for using it. (This is the internet after all - we make it up on volume.) Just take 30 seconds to install MyxerMagic and start taking your favorite images with you wherever you go.

The Basics

How does it work?

Magic.

No, really. How does it work?

When you install MyxerMagic, it adds a "Myxer - Send to my phone!" option to the context menu of your web browser. (The context menu is the list of options that shows up when you click your right mouse button on an image in your browser.)

send to phone

Like that puppy? Right mouse click and select "Myxer - send image to phone!"

Can I customize the image for my phone?

Yes, you can crop exactly the part of the source image you want to send to your phone. Because MyxerMagic uses the Myxer web site to work its, well, magic, you have full access to the powerful Myxer image editor. That means that even if the image isn't the right size or shape for your mobile phone, we'll fix it up automatically to make it real pretty-like.

Pop up window

Because it uses the Myxer website, MyxerMagic gives you powerful image manipulation tools - as well as automatic "best fit" for your phone's display.

Common Questions

Does this cost anything?

We don't charge anything for the use of MyxerMagic, but you must use text messaging and internet access from your mobile phone. Your carrier may charge you for these services.

We have a whole page that basically says, yup, it's free.

Is my phone number safe?

Yes. We're very serious about protecting your phone number, and will never send you any messages you don't explicitly ask us to send. See our privacy policy for the details.

Do I need a Myxer account to use MyxerMagic?

Yes, you need to register for a free Myxer account after you've used MyxerMagic a few times. Myxer accounts are "free as in beer," so you really shouldn't sweat it.

If you guys know so much about women, how come you're here at like the Gas 'n' Sip on a Saturday night completely alone drinking beers with no women anywhere?

By choice, man. By concious choice. (Thanks, Lloyd).

Troubleshooting

I installed MyxerMagic, but I still don't see the "Send image to phone!" option in my web browser

Make sure you've closed all instances of your web browser and restarted it. This is necessary to complete the installation.

The "Myxer - Send image to phone!" option should appear when you click your right mouse button on an image on any page. In some cases, a web page might have javascript, a Flash movie, or some other crazy thing that prevents MyxerMagic from realizing it's on an image.

I click on "Myxer - Send image to phone!" and nothing happens

The most likely cause is that you have a pop-up blocker installed on your browser that's preventing the new window from being visible. The default settings of IE7 will likely result in this behavior.

At the current time, the only option for you is to disable your popup blocker when you want to use MyxerMagic. We're looking at how we might address this issue better in the near future.

I click on the download button/link and nothing happens

In Firefox you may receive the following message, which appears in a narrow yellow band at the top of the web page: "Firefox prevented this site (www.myxer.com) from asking you to install software on your computer." At the far right corner there is an "Edit Options" button. Click this button, then click "Allow" and "Close." Now try downloading again.
