News / Mobile phones Pushbullet launches for Mac, iPad and Safari, iOS app also gets a major update

Pushbullet — one of the best apps for Android — has received a major update today for iOS that brings it on par in terms of functionality with its Android sibling. 

The app keeps your notifications in sync across devices and also allows you to send links, photos and other files between them at the click of a button.

Firstly, the Pushbullet team has optimised the app for the iPhone 6 and the iPhone 6 Plus. Secondly, the app now makes use of Share extensions — introduced in iOS 8 — allowing you to push links, photos and more from inside an app. You will also be able to share multiple files, including photos, at once.

Since the app features universal copy and paste, you don’t need to worry about apps that don’t have support for Share extensions. The team has also released a dedicated app for the iPad that makes better use of the bigger real screen estate offered by the tablet.

Pushbullet has also released a dedicated app for OS X Yosemite on the Mac App Store. The app allows you to view your pushes, drag-and-drop files to your iOS device and can even display your iOS notifications, which makes use of Bluetooth 4.0 LE. You will be able to view, act as well as dismiss notifications right from the Mac app.

Pushbullet's Mac app also supports mirroring

The notifications are only displayed if you are in front of your computer. Once you walk away, the notifications are not mirrored to your desktop or laptop. You will also be able to control the notifications that will be displayed by the app that can vary between your work and home PC.

The Pushbullet Mac app comes with a handy menulet that allows you to view notifications and push something to you iOS device even with the primary app closed.

Last but not the last, the Pushbullet team has also released an extension for Safari allowing Safari users to push any link to their iOS device via a simple right click.
