PUSHBULLET

Check out Qbits June app review for Pushbullet!, a handy app to get all your mobile device notifications on your pc and reply to messages without having to waste time on unlocking

Pushbullet is "the app you never knew you needed", according to CNET. Here's why:
 
Make sure you don’t miss a Call, TXT, Email or Facebook message, with the app Pushbullet, even if you leave your phone or tablet at home.  Pushbullet sends notifications to your smartphone or computer from the web, giving you the freedom to reply instantly, no matter the device you’re on.

Setup is easy.

Start by downloading the app to your phone and select the Google account of your preference. Then, go to Pushbullet.com and on your desktop and use your Google account to login. Once you have completed the very simple app setup and connected your devices, you’re ready to rock and roll.

Pushbullet will decrease your response time to messages, keeping notifications centralised to one place. Replying to text messages is easy to use on the chrome extension, as well as the option to send notes, links, checklists, addresses, photos, and file attachments. Pushbullet can also subscribe you to popular notification feeds like Steam, Humble Bundle, Apple and Android.

Verdict

 Pushbullet is a must-have app for your work pc. It’s convenient and simple to setup and use for your day to day communications. The reply function is very limited, and won’t let you use Facebook gifs or send a Facebook message from your pc, but you are able to send a text straight from your computer.
