PushBullet is considered one of the best tools you can use to easily and conveniently transfer files between Android devices and PC systems, set reminders, send SMS messages, and more.
The free variant of Pushbullet is somehow crippled when compared to the Pro version, and that might annoy you. You either pay $39.99/year for PushBullet Pro or look for an alternative. Luckily, there are plenty of options. Here is what you might want to try.
AirDroid is probably the best PushBullet alternative so far. With this app, you can share files, install apps, answer and make calls, reply to WhatsApp messages, check notifications, and more. It also allows you to mirror your Android device’s interface to PC. AirDroid has a Premium version priced at $1.99/month or $19.99/year but is more cost-effective than PusBullet’s paid plans.
The app is available on Android, iOS, Windows, AirDroid Web, and macOS. Here are some of the best alternatives to AirDrop!
Snapdrop is the easiest and fastest way to transfer files across multiple platforms without downloading any app. You have to create an account or scan a QR code. The app is an open-source web-based platform that runs across all platforms.
Snapdrop is also extremely safe. All your file transfers are encrypted using TLS protocol. The app is available on Android, iOS, Chrome OS, Firefox, Safari, macOS, and Linux.
EasyJoin is another excellent alternative to PushBullet. The app is mostly free, and you can do a lot of important stuff that is generally available under a paid plan. You can choose to connect your phone with your PC system and receive all types of notifications, receive and initiate calls, access the universal clipboard, send files from one device to another, perform actionable operations, such as “mark as read,” or “snooze,” and reply to messages.
EasyJoin is available on Android, macOS, Windows, and Linux. The app has a Pro version priced $15 (one-time charge).
Crono offers everything that PushBullet does but in a friendlier interface. You can reply to WhatsApp messages, similar to PushBullet, and like Instagram notifications. The app also offers support for call notification. Unfortunately, you can’t receive a call.
Crono has a Premium plan priced $1/month and is available on Android, Windows, Web, and macOS.
