Suppose you’re away from your phone, playing a game or working in front of your PC and you get an important call or a text from your close ones, you wouldn’t want to miss it right? During circumstances like this, wouldn’t it be useful if you received the notifications on your desktop, let it be a call or a text. If you’re an Android user, we’ve got a free app for you that will do all the exchanging of notifications between your phone and the desktop PC for you. It’s called Android Notifier or Remote Notifier, both are the same.
Use Android Notifier for Getting Notification on Windows Desktop:
Android Notifier is a free app that helps you receive your SMS, Call and Battery notifications on your desktop PC over WiFi or Bluetooth. You install the app on your mobile device, then you download a corresponding app for your Mac, Windows or Linux PC. There is a little bit of setting up to do, but that does not involve any head explosions. All you have to do is set up an active link between your Android phone and the PC over a WiFi connection or Bluetooth.
Once the desktop application is installed, you’ll need run it and give in certain details on what notifications to get and how. It’s pretty easy, like I said before. Remember, you should already have the Android notifier app installed on your mobile and it should be on the same WiFi network as your PC. Reboot your PC and the mobile device and check the option to Start the service at boot.
Now, you should be able to get all your SMS, Call and Battery notifications right on your Desktop in a popup window. If you have Growl installed on your Mac or Windows, then you can select Growl to display these notifications. The best thing about this app is that it’s available on Mac, Windows and Linux, is easy to setup and works like a charm. Only problem, it doesn’t tell you the contact name, just displays the number, so if you’re bad at remembering phone numbers, then this isn’t a very good idea for you.
You can download the Android app and Desktop app for Android Notifier from here. Try this out and see how it works for you.
