There are many ways to move files between your computers and your Android devices, but most of them feel like a hassle. PushBullet makes things far more simple. This combination web browser plugin/mobile app can send files and links from your computer directly to your notification tray, where you can access them without having to dig around, and its Android app just received a substantial update to version 11.1 that makes it both more attractive and accessible than before.

The new version is a more lively affair than the prior release. The action bar is more colorful and the overall app has made adjustments to keep up with the ever changing holo UI. New icons look similar to those to be found in the Android Gmail app, and you can now browse pushes from any of your devices. Plus with the addition of new home screen and lock screen widgets, your pushes are even easier to access, assuming you consider pulling down the notification tray to be too much of a chore.

What's new:

  • Completely redesigned and improved UI!
  • You can now push files with the app
  • Check out the new home screen and lock screen widgets
  • Browse all of your pushes from any of your devices
  • Improved push reliability
  • Added options to send us feedback in the app
  • And more!

We have an interview with PushBullet in the works, so stay tuned to Android Police for more information. In the meantime, give the app a go. You can access the service via its website and a chrome extension, and it's all available for free.
