PushBullet: The Android app you never knew you needed

Wireless PC and smartphone sync is convenient, to a point, but it only goes so far. Sometimes, you just want to throw a brief note, a document, or something else to somebody, or put a few documents on your phone instead of updating everything.



This is where PushBullet comes in.

PushBullet is simple. Sign up for it with your Google account on its website, download the app to your device, and you’re good to go.

Then, if you want to put a link, a file, a photo, anything on your phone, you just go to PushBullet’s website (or use the handy Chrome extension they also offer), and fire it off. Even better, there’s no limit on the devices you can connect, and it pings the notification bar automatically.

PushBullet has a few downsides. It’s strictly computer-to-Android device (no iOS version, for now), no pushing between phones, and there’s a strict file limit of 10MB. But it’s fast, effective, and best of all, intuitive. If you spend a lot of time putting links, documents and photos on your phone from your computer, get PushBullet: It’ll make life a lot easier.
