Android Notifications to Your Desktop
Recently, a neat little app slipped under the radar and XDA Member kristopherson posted a link to it. The app is called Android-Notifier. This allows your phone to send notifications to your desktop (Windows,Mac,Linux) over the network (Currently WiFi and Bluetooth, USB in the future). It can send such notifications as SMS/MMS Received, Low Battery, Missed Call, Phone Ringing, and much more. The app is perfect for people who leave their phone in a bag or listen to music using headphones and cant hear when their phone rings or vibrates. The app is currently on Google Code and the Android Market (Search or use the QR Code below). It does have a few prerequisites to run depending on what OS you are using on your desktop.
To download it go here and here. Also, to see the original post by XDA member kristopherson, click here.

The Lolliflash is a Lollipop-shaped external flash and the ZenPower is a thin 10,000mAh external battery. In today's video, Jordan shows off the Lolliflash and the ZenPower Accessories. Additionally, ASUS and XDA have teamed up to give away 5...
