Widget claims no Growl installed with Growl 1.3.3 -- Growl support is broken currently...

Since upgrading to Growl 1.3 via the Mac App Store, this widget no longer recognizes Growl as being installed (presumably since the Growl Helper App no longer exists). Are there any plans to get this widget updated to work with the new Growl?

This is awesome!

I just donated to the developer to show how much I appreciate the hard work put into this.

I have to ask if it was also possible to accept calls using this widget?
Just wondering.

thanks.

The widget is NOT a VoIP app. Get Telephone or X-Lite if you want VoIP.

perfect! you nailed it. only thing i'd like is the same thing that person above mentioned - empty the comment field upon submit - OR - a little "clear info" button that just empties phone and text if desired (i often text myself, so leaving phone in place is perfect for me)

fast, simple, uncluttered, works like a charm...

Double-click the message field to empty it or use the hidden preference described on the website to automatically clear after sending

Works GREAT! Easiest way to set Google Voice... Google should BUY this from you and offer it!

Only "wish" is to somehow have an additional GV Connect Widget for my 2nd GV number... Any suggestions?

Thanks for this great widget... It should be on MacWorld's GEM list!

You should be able to ad a second instance of the widget to the Dashboard (click the "+" button on the bottom left, then drag the widget from the bar into the open area) and use your second account credentials for this second instance.

Thanks! Your "How To" duplicate a widget worked! I should have read the Mac OS X instructions...

1.9.2 is working fine for me on 10.6.3. You might try deleting and reinstalling the widget?

I was pleasantly surprised by the full contacts (Address Book or Google) integration for SMS and voice. This is the best frontend for Google Voice (or even Grandcentral) that I've ever seen.

I love this widget. It's so much easier than the website and allows you to pull from your computer's addressbook. only had a couple issues that signing out & back in didn't solve, but I use it multiple times a day.

I find this extremely useful for sending SMS messages through Google Voice. I don't use text on my cell phone, but my kids do. This allows me to send quick messages for free. I think the author did a great job with the look and feel of the widget too! It's attractive, well designed and the author seems very responsive. Earlier versions seemed to freeze from time to time, but this has much improved. I'm giving him five stars!
