Pushbullet

Notifications that appear on your handset will also appear on your computer screen

Its Free

If you spend a lot of time at a computer and don’t want to dig your phone out every time it vibrates then Pushbullet could be the app for you. Download it to your phone and get the extension for your browser and any notifications that appear on your handset will also appear on your computer screen.

So not only will your calendar reminders pop up but you’ll also be able to see who’s texting or calling and decide whether it’s worth replying before you ever look at your phone. You can even reply to texts from your computer and you can easily mute notifications from apps which you’re not interested in seeing.

But Pushbullet is a two way street, because you can also use it to easily send files and links from your computer to your phone. Just tap the icon in your browser, attach the relevant file or information and push it.
