Although today's smartphones are well equipped to alert the users about most events but sometimes we miss that just one call that can ruin our rest of the day as you were busy with your work and miss the all important call despite the phone kept blinking right next to you. Sometimes, we also fail to respond the emergency SMSes in time.

But how nice it would be if your phone gives you an alert on your PC or laptop notifying you about what's happening on your smartphone.
