Now more than ever, we are expected to be connected all the time and we send and receive information using all kinds of platforms and devices. This fast-paced exchange of information can be difficult to keep track of especially if you’re working with multiple devices. But, hey, guess what, there’s an app that can help you with that. It’s called Pushbullet and it is arguably one of the best productivity apps of the year.
This free productivity app created by a small team of San Francisco-based coders allows you to easily share information from your mobile device to your computer and vice versa. Through push notifications, it enables you to have unprecedented, seamless access to the information you need.
Say you’re working on something on your computer and your phone’s in another room. Or you tend to get really immersed in your work and always end up missing calls and messages. With this app, you don’t have to tear yourself away from your screen to get your phone and check your messages or to monitor your calls. The app will automatically show notifications from your phone on your computer screen. As of now, this feature only works on Android devices, but if you’re using an Apple device, don’t fret! The team is currently working on it.
Pushbullet also lets you conveniently transfer information between your devices. Share pictures, links or files from your computer to your phone just by clicking on the notification. It removes the hassle of having to e-mail the information to yourself. You don’t have to go into your inbox or go digging in Dropbox. Need to transfer files and photos from your phone to your computer? You can push it straight from the Share menu.
