PushBullet – one of our favorite apps of all time – received an update today that makes notifications on your desktop even richer. The update also adds support for Tasker’s newly added Event plugins category.
In notifications from your phone to computer, PushBullet has introduced improvements that make the connection both faster and use less memory. They also tossed in images with notifications, so you can see things like who just sent you an email or text and album art from music playing. Images should start appearing automatically once you update the Android app.
In terms of Tasker features, PushBullet can be used as a trigger, so that you can do something like, “if I receive a push that my website is down, take my phone out of silent and play a siren at max volume!” That’s the example the PushBullet team gave us, anyway, but you can see the power here.
The update is live now, grab it from Google Play.
