Pushbullet and IFTTT - New Technology for Communication between PC Desktops, Browsers and Smartphones viz. Mobile Devices - Channels, Recipes, Targets and Action

Lifehacker wrote about Pushbullet, an IFTTT "Channel":
"Pushbullet is essentially a way to easily send information between your computer and phone."
IFTTT ("IF This Then That") is a newer technology allowing apps and digital services to communicate with each other via so-called "Recipes", a combination of a so-called "Trigger" (IF This) and a so-called "Action" (Then That). "Sample recipes" would be:
  • "If markets have closed, then send me the closing price of a stock"
  • "If there's an in-game update for my team, then send it to me"
  • "If I'm tagged on Facebook, then send me a link"
Pushbullet is a good example of some of the things that IFTTT can do.

See the Pushbullet Channel.

Quoted to start here already, Lifehacker has a report on Pushbullet writing:
"The IFTTT integration means you can automate ... process[es] and set up custom notifications for anything that works with IFTTT."
There are three installs for Pushbullet:
  • Mobile installation
  • Desktop installation, and
  • Browser installation.
To install Pushbullet on an Android smartphone or iPhone smartphone,
go to

Get Pushbullet 

a page that has all the necessary links,
also for desktop and browser installation.

Pushbullet is installed as an extension under Firefox and Chrome and as a stand-alone PC app (program).

This technology is still in early stages
and will surely be improved as time goes along.

There is no saying that Pushbullet will be the winner.
There are "other" Channels too.

Take a look at the IFTTT world.
