    Currently when GTV users click the link on Craigslist to reply to an ad - they get a popup from GTV stating that there is no app for this.

    This is the workaround that I posted on the Logitech Revue forum:

    "I suggest as a workaround that you copy that email address on Craigslist (next to where is says "reply to") into your GTV Chrome browser - then go to Gmail and paste that address into your Gmail "send to" box. Write your message from Gmail and send the email."


    For a detailed explanation this workaround is discussed in the Craigslist help section here:

    OR... you can side load K-9mail from either another android device or directly from the Amazon android market... it will allow you to add , I know at least because i have one each set up, a google account and a yahoo account... then when you want to reply/send and email from a web link it defaults directly to that app... plus the app does push notifications that show in the notification area of G-TV 2.0

    Thanks, will give it a try, but seems somewhat clunky -- google chrome or android os should enable some other, more eloquent solution - like the way it has been done with all other browsers and operating systems since the late 70's. I suppose there are similar workarounds for viewing PDF files too ...
