Often notifications are for content that is viewable in the web (e.g. a link to the facebook post). It would be nice to allow app developers to provide such URL for the notification (e.g. the notification action can provide any extras they like) and then show it up on the desktop computer so that clicking on it will open the address in your browser. This way you do not have to pick up your mobile phone. It will also make app developers suggest your app because this way it offers an interesting feature for its users.
