Sharing saved sites from chrome add on to android app

I just recently started using the Master Password app for android and the add-on for google chrome.
If I create the passwords on google I can export the saved sites and import the file into my app on the phone.
However if I create the passwords through the phone app, I don't seem to be able to upload them to the web browser add-on.
Is there a way to synchronize both platforms in a more "seamless" way?

    Hey Marco,

    Note that neither the Android app you're using or the Google Chrome app you're using is made by me. For any questions regarding them, I would encourage you to contact the developer for either of those.

    Hi Maarten,

    Thanks for the quick reply.
    would you recommend just using the / site and desktop app that's on your website then? I'm just trying to understand what is the best and safest way use this amazing resource.
    thanks again!

    That would be my recommendation, but that's mainly because I can't recommend applications that I don't control. There's nothing inherently wrong with using third party solutions (in fact, that's the whole reason why I made mpw open-source).

    Official support is available for the applications referenced from the home page (currently, iOS, macOS, Java Desktop, Terminal, Web & Android (Beta)).

    Note that the official Android client is still very minimal. All platforms are under active development.
