Pushbullet is a simple to use application which supports quick transfers between your computer and an Android phone or iPhone. The software facilitates instant file transfers between the paired devices, as well as sending messages or URLs. Moreover, the application supports mirroring phone notifications to your desktop.
Pushbullet allows you to send pictures, documents, archives, multimedia or any other file from your computer to your smartphone and vice versa. Android and iPhones can be paired with your computer over the Internet and a steady connection is required in order to send files or messages.
Pushbullet permits the file transfer as long as the application is installed both on your PC and the handheld device. The two devices can be paired once, then the application saves the device into its list. Generally, the application must be installed on both devices and the connection can be made via Wi-Fi, by USB cable or by network. The next time, you wish to send a file/link/note to a saved username, you only need to select it from the list.
If you are the type of person who spend much time in front of the computer, you could pair your phone with your PC and receive all the notifications on your desktop. SMS, alarms, reminders, notes, todo lists, updates, apps or anything that sends a notification to your phone can be displayed on your desktop as well.
Additionally, you can easily send SMS to any contact in your phone: simply select the desired number, type the message and hit send. Remember that Pushbullet must also be running on your phone and the device needs to be connected to the PC via Wi-Fi or USB.
File sharing and message sending from one PC to another is also supported, as long as Pushbullet is installed on both stations and they are connected by local network. The application can automatically detect a supported device/station and save it in the list, so that all you need to do is select it and share files.
