gCount is a menu bar and/or Dock item that displays the unread status of the inbox of a recently popular email service. It is provided free of charge. It requires Mac OS X 10.3 or later

What's New

Version 0.5:

Features

  • Preference to specify an alternate Web browser for gCount to use for external links (eg. Open Inbox, Compose Mail).
  • gCount now uses a much faster, and less memory intensive method for communicating with the email service (Atom feed), thanks to Jim Thomason.
  • Growl notifications now include the authors' names of unread threads.
  • gCount now uses your proxy settings, if you use one.

Bug Fixes

  • Audio files are now scanned for proper extensions. .DS_Store is not a sound. :)
  • gCount is now again compatible with Growl. See http://growl.info/ for more info.
  • Many memory leaks squashed, and a few under the hood performance improvements.
  • Login information is no longer passed as arguments to a script. Yay.

Requirements

Mac OS X 10.3 or later
