Pushbullet shows all of your phone's notifications right on your PC
When an item gets pushed to a smartphone or tablet, you will be greeted with a notification. Notes and lists open within the app, links are handled by your browser of choice, and files are opened by associated apps. Once pushed to the targeted device, the items can be shared with other devices that aren't your own (read: your contacts). If their owners don't have Pushbullet installed, they will be invited to get it via e-mail.
Pushing items from a mobile device to your computer works in a similar fashion. You'll need to have the Pushbullet Chrome or Firefox extensions installed, and check the Notification Mirroring function inside the Android app. Now, the app will push all notifications, including those from calls, messages, and e-mails, in the upper corner of your desktop. Nifty!
Users of cloud storage apps, such as Dropbox, can open files from them within Pushbullet, and push them around. Programmers can also benefit from the Pushbullet API which enables the service within their applications.

You can open things you send to your pc and links to websites (there is a chrome extension as well) but you cannot reply to text messages.

Actually there is one app that will alow you to do that. I forgot something to do with you being connected with WiFi tethering

Can you see when someone is calling with this app?

Yes, all notifications are mirrored to your PC. You can uncheck any apps you want to disable the notifications for. But you do see who is calling as well as the picture (if you have any)

It's good that this is available for Androiders and WP.
It's great to receive all my notifications on my Macbook.
iOS8 is gonna make it even better with the ability to answer actual phone calls and SMS texts (non-iMessage) on my Macbook.
Looking forward for this when I get a OnePlus

Small question for you. When you answer the phone on your mac, does the call go through your iPhone or Mac? (not trolling, just a genuine question)

Handoff (the feature) allows Mac devices near an iPhone to place and receive calls. The iPhone is a relay to the Mac. We then can answer a call or text from non-iPhone users (landlines, Android phones etc) from our Mac which is useful if our phone is charging or is across the room etc etc etc.
This also works with a bunch of apps like.." Mail, Safari, Pages, Numbers, Keynote, Maps, Messages, Reminders, Calendar, and Contacts. There's also a Handoff API for developers, which will likely see Handoff capabilities added to a range of different (third party) apps"
