android notifications on your desktop

How’d you like to get notifications from your Android phone onto your desktop? This cool little utility will notify you of incoming SMS’s, phone calls, and battery notifications, right on your desktop. The app installs on your Android and also on your desktop PC and communicates through Bluetooth, it’s fully multi-platform compatible so it will work in Mac OS X, Windows, and Linux.

You can grab the Android Desktop Notifier tool at Google code.

I came across this cool utility on LifeHacker a bit ago and figured it was worth reposting here. We generally cover the iPhone but I realize that many people have Androids too, if I couldn’t have an iPhone I probably would as well. If you’ve never messed around with it, you can run Android in a virtual machine and check it out, it doesn’t have the Apple polish but it’s not a bad mobile OS at all.

Now I just wish they had a similar notifier tool for iOS…
