Growl is an excellent notification system for OS X that makes it easy to keep an eye on the status of a range of different application without the need to switch between apps. But there is one problem, particularly for anyone who is keen to jump on the latest version of OS X – there is currently no support for Mountain Lion and its new Notification Center. Mountain Growl can help here.
The Notification Center is in line with the same feature that is found in iOS and is the latest in a series of changes to OS X that blurs the lines between the mobile and desktop versions of Apple’s operating system. If you have been a Growl user, you’ll have noticed that when you upgraded to Mountain Lion that you have to endure Growl notifications alongside those from the Notification Center.
Once you have Mountain Growl installed, this is no longer the case. This free app can be used to push Growl notifications to the Notification Center so that they will appear with all of your other notifications. This unification plugs the gaps until a fully Mountain Lion compatible version of Growl is released.
All of this works well, but there is one slight drawback. All of the notifications are generated are sent by Growl itself, so this is the icon you will see next to individual entries in the Notification Center, this is a minor quibble, however, and Mountain Growl is well worth a look.
You can find out more and download a free copy of the app by paying a visit to the Mountain Growl review page.
