Much better than Republic Anywhere. I use Republic Wireless and was looking for a tool I could use to send SMS messages from my tablet. I was having all sorts of issues with their "Republic Anywhere" app (which is supposed to let you do this), so I went hunting for something else. After trying all the other competing apps, I settled on Pushbullet. Very happy so far with the look and feel, performance and features of the app.
Finally uninstalling after disabling in Chrome months ago after I hit the SMS limit. It was so annoying to type a text (on PC) only to realize I couldn't send it. It's a great app and creative idea. But I personally don't value the convenience enough to shell out a monthly subscription fee. (And MyPhoneExplorer is both free and superior for power users.)
>UPDATE as of Friday December 1, 2017, 11:18 pm Pushbullet is now installed on all my devices. I will provide my final update after I have worked with Pushbullet for a while. >Installed 2 weeks ago. Once I can get app working on my Laptop, tablet and GS7 Edge, I'll rate OR uninstall
Great app, terrible tech support. I contacted the team with a bug that prevents me from seeing incoming texts. I was told they would work on the problem, but couldn't tell me how soon it would be addressed. That was over a year ago. For an app that charges by the month you would expect better service. Another year later and the problem isn't fixed. About time to search for an alternative.
When I'm home I use pushbullet to let me use my laptop to read/send SMS, share browser pages from my phone to my pc, and move files back and forth between phone and laptop. I don't think I Can live without it anymore. It's that useful!
I installed this across my devices and immediately loved it. Then I found out there was a 100-SMS-per-month limit before you have to pay monthly. This was not made very clear and was a major bummer. If only it was free...
