Review Desktop Notifications

Jay Feldman
7.3Good
Interesting functionality, simple design, minimalist design
Notifications can be slow, old fashioned design
Desktop Notifications for Android is an interesting little app that places your Android’s notifications menu directly into a web browser and displays them on your computer.
Desktop Notifications is a handy little app. There truly isn’t much to it, or the setup. The onscreen insctructions are very clear and easy to follow. Basically, you need to decide if you want to use this with either the Firefox or Chrome web browser. Follow the links inside the app (be prepared to write it down) to install the appropriate browser extension. Once installed, you need to add a custom code generated for you within the app. This code ensures you’ll get notices for your own device and that they are secure.
The app interface itself really has nothing to it. The design is very rudimentary. They didn’t even bother to insert live links into the app, leading to their own browser extension install pages. I’ve programmed a few small apps before, and adding links is about the easiest thing you can possibly do, so there’s no excuse for the oversight; particularly when you interface does little else.
The app functions well enough. My tablet’s notifications indeed appear on my computer screen, but only when my browser of choice is open, of course. The time it takes for a notification to come in to my computer seems to vary drastically. Some notifications took several minutes to appear; others appeared within 15-30 seconds.
Desktop Notifications is a decent enough app with limited functionality. I think MightyText offers more and does it better. However, this shows potential and it will be interesting to see how it evolves. Right now, it’s just a’ight.
