Remote Notifier for Android

If you’re anything like me, you have a tendency to leave your phone on silent while working, or maybe you leave your phone on vibrate while you’re working on the computer in the other room. In these situations, you might receive a message. Maybe it’s an SMS, an Email, a phone call or even knowing that the battery is running low.

Well, no longer will you have to worry about missing those all too critical messages. With Remote Notifier for Android, you always be notified of those incoming messages as long as you’re near your computer. It will use your computer’s built in notification system (NotifyOSD in Ubuntu) to display a toaster pop telling you that your phone has just received a message or call. You can install this on one or more of your computer’s as well so that no matter which computer you’re using you will receive the message. The great thing about this program is that it’s platform agnostic. Meaning it will run on Linux, Mac, & Windows.

It works utilizing two different methods of communication: Bluetooth sync to the computer or Wi-Fi. In my case, I used Wi-Fi since my home computer’s do not have Bluetooth.

How to get Remote Notifier for Android running:

  • Download and install the Remote Notifier for Android from the Android Market.
  • Go here to get the desktop half of the notification system.
    • To make things slightly easier for my Ubuntu friends: 32bit | 64bit
  • Install from the appropriate installer for your computer.
  • Run the desktop version.
  • Open the Android App and configure it according to your needs.

At this point, as long as both halves of the Notifier are running you should then begin receiving notifications immediately.
