Notificant makes sure you always remember what you want to. It alerts you with scheduled reminders and has the ability to shuttle notifications across different Macs. Utilizing a free Caramel Cloud account, Notificant can create notifications that can be fired at a scheduled time on your current Mac or on any of the others you own. It lives in the menu bar and stays out of your way until you need it. The simple UI makes it a cinch to create a notification within seconds.

Removed from Apple App Store. Website moved but support pages say "The account is temporarily suspended". Not looking good. Too bad looked like a nice idea.

I wanted to create notifications on a single Mac. Unfortunately, I bought it, then saw that you can't do such a simple thing without creating an account on the Caramel Cloud website which the developer runs.

They do not emphasize enough that the account is required for *all* functionality.

Concerningly, you also can't find a privacy policy on their website, even though I presume every notification you create is stored on a server controlled by them.

If they instate a full privacy policy and make the Cloud aspect optional (which is surprising that it is not), I would review again.

Hi.

Thanks for your review. The link to the privacy policy was accidentally omitted from the footer when we launched but has since been added. You can read it here: http://caramelcloud.com/privacy-policy/.

I believe Aayush (founder/CEO of the company selling Notificant) may not telling the truth.

Before posting the review above, I emailed the company noting the absence of a privacy policy; Aayush replied to me to the effect of "we take privacy seriously."

If the claim that "The link to the privacy policy was accidentally omitted from the footer when we launched" was, in fact, truthful, he most likely would have either emailed me a copy of the privacy policy or sent me the link to it. (And he probably would have noticed that the link was missing and let me know.)

Because he did neither, I doubt that the privacy policy was on their website, or that it existed at all.

Launching without a privacy policy is an oversight, but everyone makes mistakes. Worse, and what to me unfortunately appears to be the case here, would be a founder lying about it after the fact, because doing that would call into question the founder's ethics, and by extension the company's ethics as well.

Yet another developer who is losing possible customers by going exclusively through the App Store. For those of us who haven't or won't use the App Store, our choices are becoming more and more limited.
