App: AirDroid

AirDroid brings a users’ mobile notifications to their computer and, in addition, lets you send text messages, receive calls, respond to notifications, and even control the mobile device using your mouse and keyboard.

The good:
Notification forwarding: Once AirDroid is set up on your PC and your Android device, you can start forwarding your mobile notifications to your computer. The great thing is that these are actionable notifications, so you can perform some basic operations there and then.
Wireless interactions: If you plan on having a long chat with a friend, you can use your PC and its keyboard to type; you may also pick up calls from your computer as well as send files back and forth.
Device mirroring: If you happen to have a rooted device, you will be able to view its screen as a window on your PC. From there you can control everything on the phone or tablet using your mouse and keyboard.

The bad:
Root recommended: Some features, such as device mirroring, are only available on a few certified devices as well as all rooted ones. The software does function on stock handsets as well, but is infinitely more useful on rooted ones.
Data caps: The free tier of the service limits the size of the files you can send to and from the Android device to 30MB.

Bottom Line
If you own several Android devices and are tired of having to check them for missed notifications, you should definitely give AirDroid a go. This service will not only establish a centralised place for all of your Android notifications, it will also allow you to interact with your phone or tablet without switching devices.
