Android Notifier for Ubuntu

Frankly, when I’m using my laptop, I just use it for online purposes and very rarely use my handphone, and if there’s any incoming sms or notifier in my Android phone, I rarely respond to it. After that, you can imagine how angry my girlfriend when I didn’t respond to her sms =.=” . Well, I have a better solution for this problem.
Since a couple of weeks ago, I’ve been using one application that quite helped me when I’m 100% focus on my computer. Which is Android Notifier. This simple application could notify us when there are any sms or call, or even when your battery is worn out.
The good thing about this app is, we can be notified if there’s any sms or other notification.. But still, we can’t reply to that sms, or answer the call :) .. Still, you have to maximize the use of your Android phone ;)
