Bzzzt. Your phone vibrates. The problem? It’s across the room. Maybe it’s someone texting you. Or maybe someone just liked one of your Facebook photos. Or maybe some dumb game wants to remind you to buy fake food for your fake cat. You better go check it, or curiosity is going to drive you up the wall. With Pushbullet, that notification — whatever it may have been — would have gone straight to your monitor.
We have all wished for it at some point, that smartphones have the ability to automatically send notifications to our computers while we’re either too busy to too lazy to pick them up. There are a few apps out there that can make this happen, but Pushbullet takes it to a whole new level. Not only does it mirror notifications from an Android phone to the computer, as soon as they pop up on the smartphone, but it also lets users send files, links, lists, text and maps from the computer to the phone, this works the other way around as well.
