One feature I'd like to see implemented, if it's even possible, is a way to interact with notifications on the PC. For example, replying to whatsapp messages from the PC itself without having to pick up the phone. I don't know how feasible it is but I'd pay for PushBullet if it's possible to implement it.
Nice idea for an app. Are you able to respond to text messages from your computer?
Started using this a couple of weeks ago to replace chrome to phone and phone to chrome apps. Works very well. Not sure if this is something that could be done with this app, but would be cool if you could compose/respond to texts via the browser extension. I know there are other apps/extensions that can do this, but would prefer to limit the chrome extensions I have active.
Nice ...very helpful app but the transfer speed of pushing file is on the low side, i am using wifi connection inspite of that it took a whole lot of time to push a normal 10MB file... but still app is very polished, accurate and Speedy notification
I'd love to see some Tasker integration to make it more like AutoRemote. Either built-in to Pushbullet itself or a third-party plugin that uses the Pushbullet API.
This looks like an amazing app. But it's free and I didn't see any ads or paid version on store description, so I'm wondering if Pushbullet does anything with the data coming through? For example Google is free but in exchange you agree that they mine your data and sell ads. Since content travels through Pushbullet's servers you'd get anything pushed of course but with notification mirroring you essentially get all e-mails, text messages, numbers from missed calls, etc. I thought I'd ask about this.
We're working on making the PC notifications more interactive (dismissing on desktop, for example). Responding to Whatsapp messages might be tricky if they don't expose an API for us to use. Maybe they do? I haven't researched it yet but will keep it in mind.
Lack of difference between different computers - I hope it will be corrected soon
You can customize the name assigned to each browser/computer by clicking on the little gear icon that appears when you highlight a device on the PushBullet.com site. Isn't that sufficient to differentiate between your various computers and browsers?
I am wondering why there is no alternative to push bullet when it comes to answering whatsapp messages on PC.
Could you share how did you that with the compiling info? Did you use a simple bash script? Where can I learn to use the api for my own solutions?
