The Not So Great
It is hard to find much to not like about Pushbullet. I personally only use the free version, but have considered purchasing the pro version. I can understand the limits on the free version regarding texts and the cost to move to pro is not outrageous.
Pushbullet makes keeping up with my phone notifications and SMS messages easy to due while I continue to work. It is perhaps the best app I use everyday that I just forget how much I use it.

I have been using PushBullet for a year or two.
Once every couple months, their services via API stops working completely. I cannot even send a test push.
Also, their support is inexistent.
I have sent over 10 emails in a year with 0 responses.
The most unreliable service I have ever used.
I am currently looking for an alternative.

I have used Pushbullet (free edition) for several years and have come to count on it when I’m on my computer. I tried sending a SMS message and it said I had reached my monthly limit and I should upgrade to PRO version. Like I said I have been using it so I went ahead and upgraded for $39.99/year. Great! BUT, I cannot find out how to get the PRO version and even after I received confirmation of my purchase, I still wasn’t able to SMS any messages? I sent off and email to their support ([email protected]) and am waiting on a responce.
Firstly, I DO NOT LIKE HAVING TO READ OR ANSWER TEXTS ON MY PHONE WHILE WORKING AT MY PC. Secondly, unlike the other two posts I read here, I have used the FREE version of Pushbullet for the past couple of years and have had NO PROBLEMS at all with it. I primarily use it to get SMS 2FA confirmation codes for copying/pasting into websites where better forms of 2FA are unavailable. I do not send lots of texts from my PC, so I have yet to see anything about “monthly limit”s, etc. The app may not be perfect, but it certainly has fulfilled a huge need for me for some time now while working at my PC for 6+ hours a day!
