Comment What is KDE Connect? (Score 2) 30

Been using KDE for years, had not heard of KDE Connect. So thank you!
Per their site
KDE Connect is a project that aims to communicate all your devices. For example, with KDE Connect you can receive your phone notifications on your computer, or just use your phone as a remote control for your desktop. To achieve this, KDE Connect implements a secure communication protocol over the network, and allows any developer to create plugins on top of it. Currently there are KDE Connect clients on KDE, Android and Blackberry, and soon we will support iPhone as well.

It's also cheeper than my obamacare deductables by far.
