Pushbullet: Taking the hassle out of juggling devices

Have you ever been looking at something on your phone and really wished that you could send it on to your computer at home? Or maybe you’ve downloaded a document on your phone while in transit, but would really like to see it on a bigger screen. Sure, there are ways to move files around – e-mailing to yourself, uploading to a service like Dropbox, etc. – but they can often be a little clunky.

Enter Pushbullet. This app, which can be downloaded on iOS and Android devices as well as to Firefox and Chrome, takes the hassle out of juggling devices. With one click or tap it lets you send links, files, notes and even to-do lists between devices . Sending an address over the service will even automatically open the location in Apple or Google Maps, for easy navigation. Free, for iOS and Android devices.
