    Some of you may not know you can do this so I figured I'd make a post to explain how to get push notifications on your phone from RC.

    Install this on your phone:

    Android:
    https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.pushbullet.android&hl=en

    iOS:
    https://itunes.apple.com/ca/app/pushbullet/id810352052?mt=8

    Once installed, associate RC with your account here:
    https://www.reality-check.ca/account/external-accounts

    When you get a notification on RC, it'll give you a notification on your phone. If you are on RC at the time, you won't get the notification if you read it first on here.

    I did, I refrained from mentioning it until now... :P

    One other nice feature about Push Bullet in Chrome is that I get notified on my PC as well - don't even need to look at my phone.

    Even if you don't use the RC notifications, PushBullet is awesomely useful!

    Truth - I've been using it for quite a while now and love it; coupled with Web based WhatsApp and I hardly look at my phone when sitting in front of a PC now

    I've had PushBullet installed on my tablet forever, but never actually used it for anything.
