Pushbullet is the missing link between your mobile devices and other computers. With its various mobile apps and browser extensions, it finally allows you to move between mobile and desktop with ease.
The features that make Pushbullet one of the first things I install include:
- Notification sync: the mobile app sends notifications to the desktop, so I don’t need to pick up the phone while working on my laptop.
- Push links (and files, and notes): push something from the desktop to the phone, instantly. no more emailing-to-self nonsense!
- SMS from desktop: send and reply to SMS messages from the laptop, without picking up the phone!
App Highlights is a recurring series. From time to time, I highlight one Android app that I found useful. Feel free to suggest apps for me to highlight, but be advised that I focus on apps that I actually use.
