  • Grip - Growl for iPhone


    Already released in beta stages through their Google Code page, the guys at networkpx (creators of iKeyEx) are nearly ready to release Grip, a Growl look-alike for iPhone. If you don't know about Growl, you're probably not using a Mac. Growl provides system notifications (and tons of application notifications as well) in a sleek HUD themeable style.

    From a translated blog post we see there's currently two notification methods:

    • Using a text pop-up box that appears in the screen must be to relate to, and decide what you want to do.
    • Use of voice messages by using Tziltzol (sic - looks like translator isn't perfect ) or vibration.


    No definite word on release date - just "Soon we expect a very big surprise וטובה! "

    Once they're ready to release you should see it on Cydia.

    thanks to ares07 for the tip

      the advantage of grip comes from the fact that current iphone type of notifications, like what we get for calendar/sms, SUCK...stupid popup in the middle of the screen!! imagine when we have all the new push notification apps??? nightmare

      GriP can make thinks much less intrusive, and actually usefull

      Okay so I installed it all properly and it worked for about 2 minutes and I was able to preview the notification and what not. Then I switched the location and now am unable to preview it and when i click on "GriP Preferences," it says "Cannot parse a NULL or zero-length data"

      Can anyone help me with this??? Thanks.

      PS I'm good with the iPhone and understand how to do a lot, but I can't figure out what's wrong and how to get it to work. I have TLert installed as well, so I don't know if that's causing conflict or what.

      I really like this, but just to let y'all know: Dock App is conflicting with GriP!
      Crashes my phone into safe mode everytime.

      I really hope this will be solved in the future. Dock App's my main app launcher, so this kinda sucks...

      Hi - All.
      I have followed the instructions to the letter.
      Have even rebooted after installing as root.

      It shows up in settings - and everything is enabled (looks like the default).

      I get no notification of email - nothing at all.

      For those whom it did not work for - have you figured it out?

      Thanks

      The things I've seen other people say and that I want are:
      • SMS notifications
      • GrowlTunes (Shows what song is now playing)
      • Facebook Notifications
      • Beejive Alerts
      And maybe AppStore updates

      Very nice update. Now you can customize the width of the notification. Also, you only get one notification window for multiple mails.

      What is "stealth" mode for notifications when they are disabled? Sorry if this is a basic question.

      ^^^^^^^^^^^ come on -- anybody?

      Somehow GriP mail notification doesn't work in my iPhone, but the memory watcher does. Does any other app conflict with GriP? Help..

      doesn't interfere with intelliscreen.
      Does anyone else get a Chinese low memory warning now?
