Pushbullet enables you to better integrate your Mac and iOS device. When you're working from your computer, the app will instantly push notifications from your phone to your desktop, allowing you to focus all of your attention on a single device at a time.

Pros

Practical app: By moving your phone notifications over to your computer, Pushbullet allows you to focus all of your attention on a single device.

File sharing: Anyone that has tried sharing files between an iOS device and a desktop knows that it can be a cumbersome process, often involving Dropbox or a similar syncing service. Pushbullet allows you to just copy and paste from one device to another using the app.

Modern interface: The Pushbullet design and interface are great. It has a very flat, modern look to it that reminds you of both the modern OS X design and the new styling present in recent iOS iterations. In addition to looking modern and attractive, it is also easy to navigate.

Cons

Social network integration: Pushbullet requires that you sign in to the service using either your Google ID or Facebook account. This would have been better executed as a standalone service that you create a unique account for. Sometimes it is tiring to have so many apps trying to integrate with your larger social profiles.

Bottom Line

If you like an integrated technological experience, Pushbullet is worth trying. The fact that it lets you stop checking your phone every few minutes while working on your computer makes it worth a download for almost anyone.
