PSA: Use Pushbullet to be the first to read our news

1 min read

In early December, I started trialling a new Chrome plugin and iOS application called Pushbullet, which I stumbled across as a cool way to send links and images from my computer to the phone and vice versa.

However, I quickly found it’s actually way cooler than just that. What Pushbullet allows you to do is subscribe to channels, such as incredible gaming news websites. Then, as soon as they post a new article, you can be notified via a phone notification or a Chrome popup… or both.

It’s faster than our tweets get sent out and gives you the ability to read the breaking news as and when it is posted.

This is vitally important for those awesome competitions we post, as well as catching us out on publishing typos before resolving them.

To give it a go simply, sign up for an account with them and install the Chrome plugin and/or the phone application and then click this fancy little button.

It really couldn’t be easier and if you ever decide you don’t like knowing about our breaking news, you can simply unsubscribe. We don’t receive any information about you and cannot use it to do anything but notify you of new and awesome stories.

    Hmmm, it might cause people to view and comment on Lardus Approved ION images before Lardus can approve them…I approve of this!

    To be honest, can see this idea going mainstream.

    “It’s so simple why didn’t I think of that”

    or

    “Why wasn’t this done earlier” (In a goodway)

    Can see other review sites doing a personal up like this for the same Idea. Copyright that shit and sell the idea to other review sites.

      Clearly work avoidance Wednesdays isn’t effective enough.

    Make a seperate indipendant app just for this function instead of relying on a third party app. Then you can spruce it up however you like. With Lazygamer logo, colours, options such as select or mark boxes for show/recieve pictures & news feed or just title. so you can sort down a list of titles. But change the ticked boxes to customize how you view things for the day.

    When the big hand of your watch hits 6 and 12, between 7am and 7pm, there will be new news on http://www.lazygamer.net. Or are we too lazy to check the website for new news.

    Don’t support DRM. The Witcher 3 is coming.

    Chrome is just, if not worse, than DRM. Great idea though.
