Send Growl Notifications to Notification Center in OS X 10.8 with Hiss

Feb 20, 2012 - 6 Comments

Growl to Notifications Center

Make OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion‘s new Notification Center feature instantly more useful by grabbing Hiss, a free application that sends apps Growl notifications directly to Mountain Lion’s desktop notification panel.

There’s not much more to the app than that, but nonetheless it’s a great utility and worth downloading for those who are using the OS X 10.8 Developer Preview. Right now there simply aren’t that many apps that have Notification Center support tied in, although this will certainly change as we approach the Summer release date. Also, it’s worth keeping in mind that chances are reasonably high that Growl itself will end up tying similar functionality into future releases of their apps, but Hiss should bridge the gap for now.


Nice little find and screen capture by TheVerge.

    I should hope that Growl will support this feature, or else it will become irrelevant when Mountain Lion arrives.

    Thanks for the direct link – there were several other articles that reported on Hiss and all had the same link to the company with no link to the App.
    Thanks for your efforts!
