    Has anyone heard of Pushbullet - Your devices working better together
    I was recently introduced to it, and it's amazing. I can send and receive SMS via my Windows PC, while still able to view them on my Android device. Why hadn't I seen anything about this before now? Preferably back in 2014, when it was introduced?

    Either way, this is what integration is all about.

    Yep. It has now replaced every other desktop texting application I had. Easy to use and no fuss. I may replace it when Hangouts decided to utilize this, but this works perfect for now

    I've heard of it, but I don't have much need for it. I've got my Watch Urbane these days and, until I got this job just over a year ago, I didn't spend too much time at a PC during the day. I still don't spend a whole lot of time on a PC at home either.

    The best part is when you need a url on your phone you just click the icon on the PC and it there.
