Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro Does a lot more than just notifications
Pushbullet also allows its users to push messages, links, files, locations, and more to any of their devices or to other Pushbullet users.
Pro Superbly easy to use
After installing the Pushbullet application the set up process is as easy as it gets. Pushbullet will first ask you to sign in to your Google account. Then all you have to do is enable notification access and install the Chrome extension.
Pro Almost no delay
Pushbullet is just as fast as its name suggests at mirroring notifications or pushing links or files.
Pro Runs without Chrome open
As long as you enable "Keep Pushbullet running after I close Chrome" in the Pushbullet extension options, Chrome does not need to be open to receive notifications.
Pro Cross device notification mirroring
Pushbullet can even sync notifcations with other Android devices (beta). This helps prevent you from having to dismiss notifications more than once and allows you to always see your notifications no matter what device you're on.
Pro More information shown in the notification than other services
Pushbullet includes the sender's name, email address, unread count, subject, and a preview of the message all in the notification.
Pushbullet is free with no advertisements.
Pro Chrome notifications act as a notification drawer
Pushbullet uses Chrome notifications to act as a running list of past notification that have not yet been dismissed. This is especially useful if you receive a lot of notifications or you are not at your computer when they are received.
Pro Uses a Chrome extension for PC/Mac or a Windows application
Pushbullet is designed to use its Chrome extension although a Windows application can be used as well. The Chrome extension provides the best experience because any computer with a signed in Chrome browser will provide your Android notifications.
Pro Universal Copy/Paste
Copy text on PC,paste it on your Android device and vice versa. You need the windows app for this. iOS and OSX support coming soon.
Con Mac users must use their browser
There is currently no desktop application for Mac users available. The Pushbullet website claims a native OSX client is "coming soon".
