  • 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:

    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

      Was the repository yanked? Cydia can't validate the url.

      The repo http://cydia.ipitg.net has GriP in it. I'm not sure why everyone is complaining about it crashing all the time, GriP has never crashed for me.

      I'm not sure what is going wrong for you. I just removed the repo from my iTouch and added it again without any problems. Make sure you type the repo exactly: http://cydia.ipitg.net

      Are you sure it's not Cydia? Cydia is quite buggy if you have sources which are offline or having problems. You usually get the connection timed out error message or Cydia quitting if that's the case, if it does, don't go into Cydia for a few minutes-hours until it fixes itself.

      got it added. you won't believe it. the underline on the url made the "g" look like a "q". I decided to hover the link and then I clearly saw it was a "g".

      Haha, that's funny. I'm glad you figured out what was going wrong for you. For anyone else having problems adding my repo, its http:// cydia.ipitg.net (remove the space after "http://").

      Crashes into safe mode for me when I get notifications. Booo!

      Growl Client + Prowl works great at the moment.

      This has been fixed with a patch that's not part of the deb, see comment 14 (ignore the home button part, that was fixed in .11o):

      Issue 129 - networkpx - GriP Fake Push Notification causes Home button to be unresponsive - Google Code

      or if you trust me, here's the file:

      GriP & GriPGRIP 0.1-11q Released (still BETA)

      My request to lightmaster: please update the version on the repo 0.1-11p to this new version 0.1-11q, so the install process can be from cydia and no SSH.

      if this info is useful to you, please click the THANKS button.

      UPDATE info from the Developer:

      Starting from this version, Memory Watcher will not be included in GriP. Instead, it will be moved to a new package, "GriP Really Impressive Pack" (GriPGRIP). The distinction is that, GriP will only contains the most popular extensions, i.e.

      * Mail
      * Push notification
      * SMS (by xshad0w),

      the 2 themes, Default and Double Height Status Bar (also by xshad0w), and 3 modal table themes, Default, HUD and Translucent Black (I may remove the last one too). On the other hand, GriPGRIP is a collection of all other stuff that will utilize GriP, like calendar events, remote Growl notifications, themes, etc. (The distinction is because GriP is growing to 1 MiB pretty soon. I want to keep the size down.)
