    I'm looking for simply showing incoming txt notifications on my Windows PC. Responding directly from my PC would be great, but not a "requirement" for me. I generally use Chrome on my desktop...

    I think moto had/has their own app to do this (I am coming from a MotoX, and now love my GS6 Edge), so I'm wondering if Samsung has their own.

    I saw this Pushbullet app, and it looks like it would work.

    Anyone using Pushbullet or a similar app?

    BTW: Extra credit for an app that will only send the notifications to my desktop if I'm home (or even better, within BT range of my desk). Don't need txt notification popping-up if I'm traveling!

    Thanks in advance,
    AJ

    Don't take this the wrong way...just reading some posts on SideSync...but is it stable and effective over WiFi? Plugging-in via USB is a non-starter in my case.

    Looks like a cool program if it works well.

    Pushbullet rocks. You can reply from the PC if you like.

    Yup, notifications for incoming calls, text messages and hangouts. It's a pretty neat little app.

    Trying pushbullet. Looks pretty cool. Does anyone else see "Phone" listed identically, 3x in the list of apps to select for push-notifications? (I am on a VZW GS6 Edge.)

    SideSync works great and it asks you to connect via USB or WIFI, I've never used USB before, and the times I've used Wifi it works great, it's a complete mimic of your S6/edge.
