For those of you who want to get your Android smartphone notifications on your desktop computer so you don’t miss calls while blasting your internet radio at work, there’s an open source Android app called “Android Notifier” you can install that works via bluetooth or wifi.
This project sends notifications to a desktop computer when certain events happen on an Android device, such as the phone ringing, an SMS being received, or the battery running low. The notifications can be sent over Wifi, Bluetooth, or (in the future) USB.
It runs as a service on android, consuming little resources while no events are happening, and the desktop application notifies the user about the event in some way (Growl on Mac, Gnome dbus notifications on Linux, System tray alert on Windows), including information such as the number that’s calling. The desktop application is initially available for Mac – Linux will be out soon, and Windows will follow whenever someone volunteers to do it.
Of course, you will want to also learn how to set it up, ReadWriteWeb has step-by-step instructions on that, hit up the source link below.
