Lovely app, that's needless to say, but I am sure the developers like to be congratulated

I have just an issue, and it seems not comon (I hadn't found references), sometimes, when sending from ChromeDesktop to Phone a image, the notification arrive, but the picture never finish to download, nevermind I cancel and start again.

I check the preferences, and I see nothing like "download pics only on wifi"

is that a bug?, or my mobile/3G is buggy?

also, for this kind of cases, and to extend the funcionality, it should be possible to copy the link of a image in pushbullet, that wise, it could be forward the link, or open in browser (which in my case actually works)

otherwise, beautifull app !!

Awesome new feature to sync notifications across devices :)

1. Pushbullet syncs notification from just one account :(
I have two different google accounts on my primary mobile device and these are configured on pushbullet.
One of these google accounts is also in use on my nexus 7 and it has pushbullet with sync notification enabled. I receive the nexus 7 notifications on my primary mobile device. Happy :)
Second google account is in use on my second mobile device and and it too has pushbullet with sync notification enabled. But i am not receiving notifications from this device on my primary mobile device. Sad :(
Is it by design or am i doing it the wrong way?

2. Is it possible to not have duplicate notification from same app from different device if one of the device has that app running in foreground?

Do you use Download2SD (Xposed)? That breaks file downloading and even disabling it doesn't fix things. It does some weird change that I haven't figured out yet.

The app is awesome. Is there any way to send the same notification to multiple friends at the same time? That would be really useful.

An awesome app.

One question. EvolveSMS + Pushbullet works brilliantly, however when I receive a call I only get a notification on the PC with the phone number, no contact name nor contact picture.
Any ideas on this?

I haven't seen this mentioned, are there any plans for adding labels (or folders) for your already pushed items and items you're going to send? I have pushbullet for work and personal and right now everything is configured in a long running list so being able to have labels or folders like Rom, Kernel, Work, etc would help keep things organized and manageable.

Same problem here

I have installed the app and also the Chrome extension. I think it's a great app but something happened after installing it on Samsung Galaxy S2 and I cannot figure out how to solve it.
Now every time I move through apps menu I hear voice saying "Page 2 of 6" etc. etc.
The drive mode is disabled, though. So I do not understand why enabling the mirror notifications made this voice appear while I move through apps in smartphone ... how can I solve this issue?

P.S.: If I disable the mirror notification service, the voice disappears, so the problem is related to this.


Hi

I have exactly the same problem on the same phone. It is driving me crazy. I've tried a million options but nothing shuts that voice up. I have to turn on and off the mirror notification service everytime a want to use pushbullet or not.

Have you discovered a way to solve the problem?

Thanks in advance.

To the person who asked about Whatsapp+, I have received messages on my laptop from whatsapp+ using Pushbullet yes.

But, I have noticed that if I reply to an Evolve message from my laptop, it doesn't show up in Evolve, and they aren't being delivered to the recipient. Am I missing something? Love the app, very useful, but if I can sort that issue then it would be even more amazing.

Search for Samsung Talkback issue. It's a known problem with Samsung phone. Whenever you add an accessibility service, even if Talkback is disabled it will read crap to you like it was enabled. There's a few workarounds, see which one you prefer.

    PushBullet makes it easy to send things (files, notes, lists, links, ++) from your computer to your Android phones and tablets, and now from one Android device to another. It's all about making what you've sent easy to access by using all of the new notification features available in JellyBean, though it still works great for Gingerbread+.

    Sending something to your phone or tablet with PushBullet is easy. You can go to pushbullet.com or install the Chrome extension. Just sign in with your Google account in the app and on the web and you're good to go.

    You can also share your devices with other people, so they can push to your Android devices, too. This makes it easy to push a grocery list to your spouse or receive beta APKs from a dev friend.

    I haven't posted enough to include links :/ sorry.

    PushBullet has been very well received on the Android subreddit but until now I hadn't reached out to xda for feedback. I'm confident a lot of you would find PushBullet useful so I'd really like to hear how I can make it better for you.

    An update on Pushbullet

    It's been 6 months since I posted the above and we've done a lot in that time to make Pushbullet even better so I figured I should bump with an update:

    Pushbullet can now show all of your phones' notifications on your computer at the same time. This is amazingly cool and changed the way I think about my phone. All you need to do is have either our Chrome or Firefox extension installed and turn on "Notification Mirroring" in our app. Here's a video demoing the feature: https://youtube.com/watch?v=Fn6na1hVhFo

    Pushbullet now has a full-featured Firefox extension (we used to just have a Chrome extension). This is great since we're no longer quite so presumptive about forcing you to use a certain browser to take advantage of Pushbullet.

    You can now send anything Pushbullet can push right to friends/family. They'll get notified on all of their devices so they see it wherever they are, then we automatically dismiss it on their other devices after they interact with it on one. It's how quick-sharing should work and we're going to make it a lot better this next year.

    Oh and of course Pushbullet can push from your phone to your computer now (we used to just do computer to phone). This makes Pushbullet the easiest way to get pictures/files/etc from your phone and onto your computer.

    ---

    I've attached some screenshots of the updated app. If you're still scratching your head wondering how this adds up, here's a video that does a better job than words do: https://youtube.com/watch?v=jFLEM46Vltk

    It'd be amazing to get some feedback from you all--we've got big plans for 2014 and it'd be great to know what you really want to see next :)

    Ah yes, one last thing, Pushbullet is 4.0+ now.

    Here's some links: (Well sort of, I can't post links yet)

    Website: https://www.pushbullet.com

    Android app: (link in footer of our website)

    40$ per YEAR?

    COME ON!
    I'd pay 10, 15, EVEN 20$ for your full app. BUT ONCE.
    NOT 40 DAMN DOLLARS EVERY DAMN YEAR. Are you guys crazy?
    I'm uninstalling right now. Bye!


    Hi everyone,

    I am wondering why there is no alternative to push bullet when it comes to answering whatsapp messages on PC.

    There is Whatsapp Web.

    Ah certainly, I've added the APK to the post.

    I'm glad you like the app and are even using our API! We're going to be adding more functionality to the API soon. My goal is to make it possible for anyone to do just about anything we can do ourselves all via the same API. I think of it kind of like how the Google apps are built on the same Android APIs I get.
    3
    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?

    It's very simple. Put this in ~/bin and chmod +x and edit the values of "api_key" and "device_id" (line 2 and 3) to reflect your own key/ID:
    Code:
    # Your API key must end with a ':'
    api_key="your_api_key"
    device_id="your_device_id"
    curl https://api.pushbullet.com/api/pushes \
        -u "$api_key" \
        -d device_id="$device_id" \
        -d type=note \
        -d title="$1" \
        -d body="$2" \
        -X POST \
        -s -S > /dev/null
    Let's pretend we named the script 'pushbullet.' You can now simply call it like this:
    Code:
    pushbullet "My notification's title" "My notification's description"

    Of course, you can also send something that's not a note, or make a script that allows you to choose what type of push to use:
    Code:
    api_key="your_api_key"
    device_id="your_device_id"
    
    case "$1" in
        note)
            arg1="title"
            arg2="body"
            ;;
        link)
            arg1="title"
            arg2="url"
            ;;
        address)
            arg1="name"
            arg2="address"
            ;;
        list)
            arg1="title"
            arg2="items"
            ;;
        file)
            curl -i https://api.pushbullet.com/api/pushes \
                -u "$api_key" \
                -F device_id="$device_id" \
                -F type=file \
                -F [email protected]"$2" \
                -s -S > /dev/null
            exit
            ;;
        *)
            echo "Unknown option."
            exit
            ;;
    esac
    
    curl https://api.pushbullet.com/api/pushes \
        -u "$api_key" \
        -d device_id="$device_id" \
        -d type="$1" \
        -d "$arg1"="$2" \
        -d "$arg2"="$3" \
        -X POST \
        -s -S > /dev/null
    And to use it (not sure what the exact syntax for a list push's items data fields are, maybe @guzba can give us an actual example for that:)
    Code:
    # syntax: pushbullet <type> <title> <content>
    pushbullet note "Note's title" "Note's description"
    pushbullet link "XDA Portal" 'http://xda-developers.com'
    pushbullet address "Googleplex" "1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA"
    # for files, the syntax is: pushbullet file <file>
    pushbullet file myfile.txt

    EDIT: Forgot to answer your question - you can just call the script after the build command, for example (if you're using the first script:)
    Code:
    make bacon && pushbullet "Build Completed" "Yay" || pushbullet "Build Failed" "Oops"

    Note that the scripts I've pasted above won't output anything unless an error occurs. They're silent otherwise. See https://www.pushbullet.com/api for the full API/more info on how to get your device's ID/API key.
