      Pushbullet vs KDE Connect opinions
      This alternative is disputed. Pushbullet is still a legitimate alternative to KDE Connect, but it might have issues that some users think are important.
      Pushbullet cannot mount device's storage using FUSE

      syntaxxxerr0r1 contrary to other comments that Airdroid is not available for Linux.. it is actually. HOWEVER, it exists only as an App from the Google Chome/Chromium webext app stores. (Personally i usee Chromium over Chrome, what you pick is no bettere or worse really.)not only is it available to US Linux fan boys (and Girls!!! ) it is also available to those of us who are dirty traitors who happen to also have iOS on hand... So yes you can also include your iPhone/Pad etc... CHEERIO MATES!
