Pushbullet Receives an Official Client for Windows

Pushbullet is one of my favorite applications, and it became a must-have on my device ever since I first tried it. It’s a great tool that allows users to perform a variety of tasks such as share a photo and sending relatively large files between a computer, phone, or tablet with ease. The tool was featured some time ago, but it has been updated a couple of times since then. XDA Forum Member guzba and his crew haven’t been sitting idle, and now Pushbullet has its own version for Windows.

Previously, this app worked as an extension for Chrome or Firefox. But this wasn’t perfect, as those two browsers aren’t used by everybody. Now, the Pushbullet team announced on their blog that a dedicated application for Windows is out and they are looking for beta testers.

Having a standalone app is beneficial because a PC is now treated as a separate device. It can now be used to send or receive notifications, without needing to have a browser running in background. Another great thing is the ability to sending files directly by right clicking on the file and selecting a pushing option.

You can read more about the announcement on the Pushbullet blog. And don’t forget to get their mobile client and provide any input in their XDA thread.

Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge Drop Test

The Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge are already proving to be amongst the head turners of 2015. From favoring their inhouse Exynos 7 SoC over the Snapdragon 810 SoC (which ended up causing issues to its main rival); to ditching the removable battery and micro sd card slot in favor of a more "premium" device, the flagship duo have a lot going on for them at this stage. Regarding the premium redesign which replaced plastic with metal and glass,...
