The PushBullet team has been cranking out new features for their file-synching app as of late, making it that much easier to get files from an Android device onto a PC (and back again) without having to deal with any bothersome cables or heavy cloud services. Now the team has crossed yet another milestone - they've made PushBullet more of a social experience. In the past, users could pair directly with their friends' individual devices. Now, friends are organized as contacts, and all you need is an email address to push files to anyone you wish.


Sharing with others is easier than before. Just add new ones by entering their email address into either the app or on the PushBullet website. They will then appear in your list of available targets whenever you want to push a file. The behavior works both within the Android app and the PushBullet browser extensions.


Recipients who have PushBullet installed will get a notification on their device, just as if they had pushed the file themselves. Those who don't will still receive the file, but it will come in the form of an email.


The update is already live in the Play Store, so have at it. You, and your friends, will be glad you did.
