    I love Growl, can't live without it on my Mac, and I asked for Growl for iPhone a long time ago. However, now I can't think of practical use of Growl on iPhone. Don't we get notifications anyway for a lot of things? Also, I installed something (can't remember the name, a long time ago) that makes the iPhone vibrate when I haven't read an SMS or missed a call. Can you guys give me some practical examples of notifications that Growl gives you on the iPhone and you would not get otherwise?
    Thanks

    Ite, so now that every body has said how amazing this is and how they wanna make love to it. Lets talk about this app for real. First off, amazing idea, soooo much potential. Now, as it comes it only does e-mail alert and memory. How can Grip take over all alerts, missed calls, sms, and when 3.0 comes out, all the push notification we will have? Also, how can quickreply be integrated with Grip?

    AMAZING idea, sooo much potential. I am sure we will see much more to come of this.

    there´s a video on youtube

    [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uB1MPXkGrOc]YouTube - [iPhone-App] GriP - Jailbreak-Notification[/ame]

    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


    by the way, i have it running perfectly on 3.0 beta 4

    Basically, you can get a little popup in one of the corners of the screen when you have and email. I'm also assuming that it will allow developers to add a way for their programs to send information to it so you can get a popup saying something like "Facebook: you have 2 new notifications."

    Also, everyone who uses any kind of networking, from cell phones to Wi-Fi, uses MACs. Not everyone uses Macs though. The capitalization there is very important and its really annoying when people use the word MAC when they mean Mac.

    feel free to read the documentation




    Programming for GriP
    AppStore (SDK) developers

    While GriP requires Jailbreaking for maximal function, it can also be made SDK-compatible. Of course, it is up to Apple Inc. to decide whether GriP-supporting source codes are acceptable, but GriP uses only documented API so technically it should be allowed.

    it would be hot and real nice when we get the chance to change the theme.
    when will it work for other apps like AIM or the beejiveim application.
    Does anyone know how to add it to beejiveim or Aim either one is good,, if you don't want to try it and want someone else to do it i will try it.

    Changing theme is one of the nice features of growl on macs. After I tried it on the iphone, I agree that these growls are less obtrusive than the typical iphone notifications, but they are still more obtrusive than status bar notifications. So far, it hasn't really added too much to my iphone use. But still, it's nice to be able to run it.

    EDIT: After a little use, I think a nice feature is the low memory growl. It's helpful. Before things get really sluggish, you get a little growl that tells you that you are low on memory, so that you can clean up or kill some processes

    I just can't get into the whole Growl thing. I've tried it a few times but it always just kind of annoyed me. Perhaps this will be different. I'll probably give it a shot though...

    Isn't this something like the Push feature thats going to be available for apps on 3.0? We already have the audio, and i think in the conference videos they were showing how meebo will give you a Pop-Up saying that you have a new IM etc. Maybe Growl itself will be in the app store since Dev's are allowed to script Pop-up notifications.

    WHat about Memmory Usage? IS this a Heavy App ? Cause its always ruuning in the background...With Winterboard already sometimes the phone is slow..also with some other Lockscreens als with changing backgrounds and with SB settings and iRealssms (also running in background) all that togher I`m running and have free of 30mb Memmory.


    Sometimes the phone is slow and needs a restart.... Also I think that 2.2.1 is very bad firmware compare with previuos fimwares.

    I haven't seen any noticeable increase in memory usage. BTW, a cool Growl feature is missing in Grip, that is, GrowlTunes. When I am listening to music and browsing the Web with MobileSafari or reading tweets on a tweeter app for iPhone (or whatever else I am doing) and the iPod app changes song, it's nice to get a little notification with the info on the new song played. But this feature is not currently available in Grip. It should not be too difficult to implement it.
