5 free alternatives to the not-so-free-now Pushbullet app for Android
Android users are probably familiar with Pushbullet, which is an excellent piece of software to synchronize your smartphone and personal computer. Pushbullet has the ability to transfer files between your computer and Android device, send SMS messages from the desktop and view all your notifications right on the computer screen.

The app was free for a while, but nowadays, that's no longer the case. Pushbullet's free version is limited, and unlocking the full functionality costs five dollars per month. Unfortunately, the developers took a rather bullish approach to monetization and made the free version almost useless in the process. App makers tend to offer the essential functionality for free, and add optional, but very convenient paid features to convince users to splurge. But Pushbullet straight-up cut desktop notifications, unlimited SMS, large file transfers, and universal copy and paste, among other nice things.

If you aren't amused by that, you can opt for free alternatives. Thankfully, these are aplenty! Here are five apps that cover most of Pushbullet's aspects, or just different parts of its functionality without asking for a paid subscription.
