Communicate with Your Android Device without Cables with PushBullet
Smartphones have essentially become substitutes for full PCs in many situations. We use them to watch movies, listen to music, and even play games. Nevertheless, traditional computers are still very important, as browsing the Internet on the big screen with full Flash and Java support is still more convenient.
What to do when you find a funny image or application that is not available in the Play Store? Grabbing a USB cable and installing it via ADB is time consuming. You can’t also share links, lists, or addresses with just one click that way either. But now you can, thanks to XDA Forum Member guzba, who developed an application and browser extension to easily communicate with your Android devices.
PushBullet gives you the ability to do the aforementioned tasks really easy and without wires, so you can forget about the cables. You can also share things with friends and family, so nobody forgets to buy the milk. The PushBullet browser extensi0n works with Chrome and Firefox. All you need to do is to install the extension and connect it to your profile. The communication works two ways, so you can easily exchange some messages with your friends.
You can find more information aboout the project in the original thread.
