One thing you should definitely fix - once you install Android app and run it for first time, it tells you that you need to sign in using your G account. I thought the reference is for the web-app since the android app already listed my G account email address at the bottom of the screen. In the web-app I checked I am signed in and yet I could not do any push. So I was frustrated why the wep-app does not recognize my android device. I touching the android app randomly and finally a random click on my email address made the connection.
Its definitely not obvious how to pair the device with the web app. You should make some button in the app
Otherwise I like it :)
Pushing an address:
1. Search address on Google Maps
2. Open up Maps on Android
3. Click on "My Places" from dropdown menu
4. Swipe to Recent
1. Create notes in Google Drive
2. Open on Android
1. Create list in Google Drive
1. Open website on laptop in Chrome
2. Open Chrome browser on Android
3. Select the "Other Devices" tab
4. Open website
I suppose you could push files via Drive as well.
Pretty cool though; I may give it a try.
Glad to hear you'll give it a try :)
Not everyone knows how to push using those apps
and I hope this makes life simple. :)
One small thing... when I started the app, it fired up my Twitter client O.o What's up with that?
[Update: I apologize greatly. Both my test pushes just arrived perfectly in my notifications bar. Nice!!! ]
Personally, I don't think I'll use it - I use dropbox when I want to sync a file with my phone, Evernote for notes and lists, and just Chrome to Phone for addresses (via google maps) or urls.
I want to be able to put my own notes, lists, etc on my phone, not just webpages and links. And files too, of course.
Simply, PushBullet will be a superset of Chrome to Phone.
A big annoyance of mine with CtP is it's one-way, I can't send links to a browser. Would it be possible to PushBullet a file/link back to a browser? Maybe the last browser that pushed to the phone?
As a designer, I'm constantly making things I want to be able to show to others at any given time, so I constantly email mockups to my phone. The process currently sucks, and this would be really helpful.
I guess the business model is to sell the e-mail addresses after all.
