Use Push­bul­let to man­age your iOS no­ti­fi­ca­tions from your Mac

No­ti­fi­ca­tion Cen­tre lets apps tell you when things hap­pen. iOS 8 and OS X Yosemite are smart enough that when you dis­miss a no­ti­fi­ca­tion that ap­pears on more than one of your de­vices, it dis­ap­pears from the oth­ers. How­ever, it falls short in that you might need to keep check­ing each of your de­vices to stay in­formed.

Push­bul­let gath­ers no­ti­fi­ca­tions from all of your Ap­ple de­vices to No­ti­fi­ca­tion Cen­tre on your Mac. When you dis­miss a no­ti­fi­ca­tion on your Mac that orig­i­nated on iOS, it will van­ish from the mo­bile de­vice too. Push­bul­let is es­pe­cially good news if you use iOS-only soft­ware, such as What­sApp.

You can also send cus­tomised alerts be­tween de­vices, con­tain­ing text, links and files. Push­bul­let also pro­vides Uni­ver­sal Copy and Paste, en­abling you to copy some­thing from one de­vice and paste it on an­other.

Push­bul­let uses Blue­tooth LE to re­lay no­ti­fi­ca­tions, so you need a re­cent Mac that’s ca­pa­ble of us­ing Air­Drop be­tween Mac and iOS (see sup­port.ap­ple.com/kb/ PH18947). Blue­tooth needs to be en­abled on your Mac and iOS de­vice. We also found the ac­count needed to be an Ad­min ac­count, not Stan­dard. Lucy Hat­ter­s­ley
