PushBullet eases getting links, files, pics and notes on and off your phone

This is one of the most useful apps you can find on the market. Period.

What does it do? It pushes links, files, pics, notes and lists between devices. It may sound as something that you can already do with other tools. However, it makes it way easier.

Imagine you are surfing the web on your desktop PC and you find an interesting pic you'd love to share from your phone using your favorite messaging app. What would you do?

You'd have to e-mail the picture to yourself or upload it to Dropbox (or similar) or save the link to Pocket and download it to your mobile device.

PushBullet beats that. If you need to share simple text notes, To-Do lists, pics, links or files between desktop and mobile devices (or between your tablet and your smartphone) push them with Pushbullet. A notification will show up immediately and you'll be able to access the resources from any device.

Obviously, you need to sign up with a Gmail account and then sign in with that account in all your devices. You can send resources from desktop computers from Pushbullet website and using its Chrome extension. Highly recommended app.

Developer's original description available here
Never miss another phone call or text message again while using your computer!

Pushbullet automatically shows you all of your phone's notifications right on your computer. This means you can see who's calling or read and reply to text messages even if your phone is on silent or in another room.

Pushbullet also makes it easy to send pictures, files, links, and more to your devices and even to friends.

Sending things with Pushbullet is the easiest way to share things between your devices:

• Push a link to your phone by just right-clicking on it on your computer. You can then go right to the link by tapping on the notification.

• Send pictures and other files to your phone wirelessly from your computer and open them right from the notification. No more digging things out of your email inbox or Dropbox.

• Send any address over to your phone so you can get right into Google Maps instead of having to look it up again on your phone.

• Put a todo list right in your notification tray and check of items as you go.

Pushbullet looks and works great on tablets too.

This app works best when paired with our Chrome or Firefox extension:

    I have been thinking about the time when pc and mobile devices converge, and this app does exactly that. Installed this app today, I was wondering if there are any plans for android-android push using bluetooth? I get around a lot and not always have an internet connection. Having my devices communicate using bluetooth would be very handy! Otherwise great idea and great app. Hope it gets even bet
