Getting notifications from all of your favorite apps via Growl for Windows is great when you are at your desk. And with plugins for Prowl, Howl, Boxcar, and Notifo, getting those same notifications on your iPhone is a breeze as well.
Well, today I am happy to announce that that same great ability is now available for the new Windows Phone 7 as well. Toasty lets you receive push notifications on your Windows Phone 7 device while you are on the go. Some of the key features are:
- receive push notifications even when the app is not running
- live tile updates show you how many notifications you have missed
- icons for all notifications for quick recognition at a glance
- notifications are stored locally so you can search and view them even when offline
Here is a short (silent) demo of Toasty in action:
Growl for Windows v2.0.5 is being released today as well and has built-in support for forwarding to Toasty. Toasty also has an API so you can send notifications directly to your device if that is your thing.
If you have the Zune software (v4.7) installed, click the button below to read more about Toasty, or just search for 'toasty' on in the WP7 Marketplace.
Toasty is available in the Windows Phone 7 Marketplace now. Lucky European readers can buy devices starting on Thursday and those of use in the US can get in on the action starting Nov. 8th.
As always, I would love your feedback to help improve the app. I am working on getting a more appropriate support forum set up, but if you try it out, you can post up your thoughts here for now.
Thanks for supporting Growl for Windows and helping make it the best it can be.
