Integration Spotlight: PushBullet

Today we’d like to shine the spotlight on another of our great integrations for receiving StatusCake alerts to your mobile device or browser. It’s a great integration to use if you’d like to get your alerts from StatusCake completely free of charge, and has a rich selection of features on both the free and pro plan (which comes at a subscription cost for more advanced users).

On the free plan you’ll get 2GB of storage for your notifications – meaning that it will be a long time before you’ll need to worry about clearing any out. If you do expect to get a lot of notifications into your channels then there’s an optional upgrade to 100GB of storage, which everyone should struggle to fill. If however your channel is used for file uploads and other activities separate to the StatusCake alerts then this can be a good option.

PushBullet comes with end to end encryption built in – this can be enabled or disabled depending on the user’s preferences. There’s also a full API which can be used to extend the functionalities of the software, in terms of the StatusCake alerts this enabled you to define rules for how they are received, parsed, handled – and where they go to next. It’s also got the ability to convert your notifications from us into a different format

A great feature of PushBullet

StatusCake alerts and re-purpose them into notifications for other apps and systems, including SMS and a variety of mobile messaging apps including the hugely popular WhatsApp and Kik, you can set up rules for certain alerts and they will be auto-converted to the desired platform upon their arrival.

PushBullet mirrors notifications across all platforms, so you’ll get the same alert in your browser that you do on your phone or tablet. Whatever device is in use – you can rely on a unified notification experience with all alerts appearing at the same time.

Another handy function you’ll find is called “Unified Copy/Paste” which means if you copy an important piece of text in one PushBullet window, it will be in your clipboard on all other devices with that window open!
