Just too expensive. Free is more realistic, but maybe I'd consider $5 if it worked flawlessly.

The only criticism I have is that the windows in the news go by too fast to launch them.

The Notification for News is driving me Nuts, before I get a chance to launch it ,it disappears.This is not true in SnowLeopard because Growl is used. But i use Yosemite most of the time.

Nifty little app. Would like to see even more notification support for other apps (i.e. Outlook), but not sure if possible.

I notice that there is no icon with this version. A blank spot on the dock — that's OmniGrowl. The invisible spot works, however. Even on the MU listing, it's missing.

Nice Program. Would like to see support for iChat as CHATx is no longer being updated. (That I can find) Thanks for your hard word!

The initial release of OmniGrowl version 4.3.4 was inadvertently Intel-only. Thanks to a user e-mail, this was corrected within a few hours. If you have a PPC, please re-download the universal version. Thanks.

Looks good on the surface. I'll give it a try, and if it suits my needs I'll be more than happy to contribute. If not, I'll delete. Thanks to the developers for allowing me the option of trying before buying.

Thanks for the comment about the pricing. It may not be obvious but more of our time is spent on OmniGrowl than any other application we develop. To get the tidy notifications it gives from so many sources, it requires constant updating and creative text formatting tricks, as well as keeping up with tech changes (for instance the radical change in MobileMe calendars). Honestly this should be a $25 application in terms of the time involved in development. Thank you for considering our perspective on this.

I honestly don't care how much time and effort it took to make OmniGrowl, or to keep it current, and supply and demand has never worked that way anyway. People only care about what a product is worth to them, and as I've said, this isn't worth much. Sorry, but that's the way the capitalist model has worked for at least 1200 years.

Let's not forget "profit motive" in a discussion of capitalism. Without incentive and the ability to stay in business, supply and demand mean little. So, to bring this post back around to the application here, I happen to think $12 is a fine price, take it or leave it. A computer is only as good as its suitability to task and that, is almost fully dependent on software to make it perform useful functions. If you can afford a $1000 or more computer, of any make, you can afford some software to make it work, or do you buy a razor and then never any razor blades because they are too expensive? Sorry for the tirade here at the end, but come on...do you work for free, GeoProf?

It seems that people want to talk more about the definition of "Capitalism" than the actual program here. It's unfortunate that we have to slog through these irrelevant comments to find an actual reviews or a constructive critique.

Customers will buy OmniGrowl if it is worth the price. The ones that won't pay for it are not worthwhile keeping. Apple customers are more than willing to pay a high price for their Macs, iPhones, iPads, and iPods. And they are more than willing to pay lots of money for their apps. I support OmniGrowl's developer. They should price it in terms of how much they believe it is worth, just like Apple prices its computers. The cheap customers are the ones who file the most complaints and are the ones who can never be happy. They aren't worth the headaches. LIke Apple, it is best to cater to the high end.

Excellent app, nicely updated, however, I admit that for all its features, it just lacks the thing or two I'm looking for and for which I'd fork - ichat and mail support; mail growling at least works temporarily with property list hacks, but the newer version of chax is, well, still alpha, and still very unstable, and with Chax 2 not working in SL, it makes a rather important thing to me (growl provides better deaf access than the built-in deaf access feature in the OS) unavailable.

Thanks for the support. We never considered supporting iChat because Chax works well, and there was only a short period where it didn't work on Snow Leopard. Recent versions seem to work very nicely. Similar reasoning for Mail -- this function is supposed to be provided by Growl as an extra. If you think otherwise, please feel free to send product suggestions to support. Can't guarantee they'd be implemented, but all good suggestions considered.
