How to make your Android phone's notifications appear on your computer desktop

0. phoneArena 19 Dec 2013, 02:41 posted on

The apps we're about to introduce you to are of a rare kind – apps that you realize you've been needing all along soon after you start using them. Their job seems quite simple and rather insignificant at a glance, but trust us, they can make your life easier. At least a bit. So, what do they do? Well, think of them as automatic notification forwarding apps. Each time a notification appears on your Android smartphone or tablet, a pop-up window with that notification will be displayed on your computer's desktop as well. In other words, you will know who that text message is from, who just sent you email, who is calling, what app just got updated, what's next on your calendar, and more without moving your eyes away from your computer...

I'm right there with you. I don't really think I'll use these apps because while they might be interesting and some people might like them I would prefer to avoid seeing notifications popping up in my computer when I'm working. And ever since I got a tablet I barely use my phone except for calls and messages.

AirDroid is really missing on this list

Agreed! AirDroid definately ought to be on this list.

It does NOT require Chrome. CAN function on wireless or cellular. CAN respond to text messages.

It really helps when a SMS response will be rather lengthy or you do not want to be seen tapping on your phone all day.

Try it out. It's free!
