After all the press surrounding my last post, I had to do something. Instead of confirm or deny anything, I decided to do something. Something big.

I'm presenting the final release of MobileNotifier that I'll have a part in before my absence. MobileNotifier beta5, Ecstatic Eggo. This release is big in more ways than one. It's the most revolutionary release since the project's inception.

Here's a video I made of the release. I'm the guy in the middle:

What's new?

  • MobileReply. Reply to text messages while within other applications! It works like magic!

    Here's a picture:

    MobileNotifier Beta5 MobileReply

  • Full message text! Read everything in the alert, not just the first few words.

  • Redesigned minimalist alert display!

  • A brand new AlertDashboard, inspired by our amazing lockscreen view!

    Here's a picture:

  • Dismiss alerts right from the popup! Hate going into the dashboard to remove alerts you've just archived? Simply hit the "X" in the popup to dismiss them for good!

  • Recall the most recent alert easily with an Activator action. Then use MobileReply to reply to it!

  • Thanks to work by Marc Easen, MobileNotifier now supports calendar invitation alerts!

  • Way way faster.

What's been fixed?

  • Lockscreen no longer displays if you have it set to "off"

  • Various small bugfixes.

  • Did I mention way way faster?

You'll need to reconfigure your Activator actions for MobileNotifier. MobileReply, for you developers, is something you can use in your software too! It's self-contained. Check out MNSMSSender in the MobileNotifier source.

Grab the release at the repo - - and enjoy yourself!

The MobileNotifier Team, Kyle Adams, Tim Novinger and myself, along with external help from Marc Easen, have been working on lots of great new features, and we're truly happy to show them to the world. Along with Kyle, I tested over 100 builds of this release before shipping it.

All of us are also on Twitter! @peterhajas, @kyleadamsdotorg, @timnovinger and @marceasen. Say hi if you'd like!

I really hope you all enjoy this release, I know I'm ecstatic about it!

Like I said in my last post, I'm taking a break, but I'll be back. I think we'll see some great things.
