PushBullet for Android

Editors' Review

by   / March 03, 2013

Android phones feature a drop-down notification window, typically used for system notifications. PushBullet is an application that makes it possible to send information to the notification bar from any Web browser. This is a welcome addition to the Android operating system.

Downloading and installing PushBullet is a simple two-part task. First the application must be downloaded on the smartphone and registered using a Google account. Then the user must go to PushBullet's Web site and register using a PC. Once the app has been set up, it provides an easy way to send notes, Internet links, addresses (opening in Google Maps), and shopping lists (with boxes that you can check off) directly to your phone. While browsing the Web, you can keep the app's site open in a tab or window. When you see something you want to push to your device, you simply copy and paste it in to the PushBullet page, then hit Send, and it arrives in the phone's notification window. There's also a Chrome extension so you don't need to keep a window open.

The program itself runs entirely in the background, but can be opened to delete pushed content. The user interface is clean and modern with sharp contrasting text. The app itself is very stable and functions perfectly in modern versions of browsers. Although there are other ways to accomplish these tasks using Android and Chrome, PushBullet brings it all together and is an amazingly useful tool. We recommend it for all users and even think it should be included in the Android operating system.
