I was using Google Keep for sharing links between my devices instead of typing the entire page link in the browser. Sometimes you just want to share a photo with your contacts from your computer, but you don’t want to email it, Whatsapp or BBM are easier on mobile phones for sharing text and files.
Few weeks later, I found Pushbullet app. You only have to sign up, add your device and thats it, start sending links, photos and text.
Pushbullet is Available on
Android, iOS, Chrome, Windows, Firefox
coming soon to Mac OSX
Pushbullet automatically shows you all of your phone’s notifications right on your computer.
How to use it?
2. Sign up and add your device
First way of sharing (easiest):
1. Click the share icon
2. Select A new Pushbullet
3. Select the target device and send
The second way:
1. Open PushBullet App
2. Click the plus button to add a new push
3. Select push type
4. Enter the link and title and send
Download Pushbullet software for your computer, or just install Chrome extension / Firefox
There are some alternative apps that were popular years ago, such as Google Chrome to Phone, but Pushbullet is a cross-platform and users are able to send different types of content unlike the other alternative apps.
What about the developers?
Web, Android and iPhone developers are able to implement Pushbullet extension in their apps for better user experience and integration with the official Pushbullet services. The following link includes the documentation for developers with the recent changes in API. Pushbullet Docs link
