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.

Open War for Open Android: Antitrust for Cyanogen?

Android and openness is something we talk about all the time, but the recent developments in the industry point towards inherent flaws with this very premise. Be it from bloggers, political institutions or corporations, Android is seemingly not open enough. The “War on Openness” is ironically becoming an open war, where many players are increasing their stakes and scope to try and land a bigger hold - or at the very least, restrict Google’s - on what is the world’s...

What Do You Do with All of Your Old Photos?

Smartphone cameras have advanced so tremendously over the past few years that they have almost completely replaced point and shoot digital cameras for the most of us.

Diving into the April 2015 Material Design Update

Before the release of Android 5.0 Lollipop, the Holo Design guidelines served as the official reference for Android design, right from IceCream Sandwich to KitKat. However, updates to the guidelines were few and far between, leading to a lack of synchronization between Android design and current UI/UX trends. Google seems to have learned from their mistake the last time around, and earlier this week, a significant update was released for the Material Design guidelines, marking the second revision in less...
