- Bluetooth auto connect
- Display SMS/Text Alert
- Send SMS/Text from your computer
- Answer call from your computer

- Disconnect call from your computer
- Blurts will auto start on device reset
- Options to control alerts
Blurts costs $4.99 until November 15th (regularly $5.99).
Another application worth trying, that does the same thing, is Elertify. Elertify also costs $4.99 until November 15th but it has a speech component which Blurt does not seem to have. This might make Elertify a better deal, but we’ll have to give you a head-to-head review soon.
