Just instaleld and got it working great on my Iphone with XBMC on Windows 7.. am a bit confused.. i installed Growl but didn't change anything atall.. then noticed the XBMC settings in the Notify Pro...
Is it actually using Growl to do anything or can i uninstall it?
All i'm having it do is send call, sms, push and mail notifications to the screen and display for 10 seconds..

If you are sending notifications to xbmc, then you don't need growl.
if you want to send notifications to your PC ( i.e) when xbmc is swithed off then you need growl ( it will even let you reply to the sms ).
also it depends on how you configured notify pro on the iphone, i.e) did you configure growl or xbmc.

I don't mean answering calls from iPad (how ridiculous would that look) but replying to SMS thru a native-esque UI, something like biteSMS's quick reply dialog, straight from the ipad would be incredible. I'd pay like €20 for a tweak like that. Anyway, just throwing ideas out there!!
Btw, how did the wedding go?

Count me in too
Also, @johoja I noticed a bug while adding notifo.com host. When you press add a host it gives you the username and api fields as normal. But instead of Call, SMS, Mail, push notify options - it has SMS, Push, Mail, ToggleCell. When you go back into it after adding the host it gives you back the call option instead of ToggleCell.

iPad is receiving notifications fine but can't reply. I'll hold out to see what you have in store for us
Also, the problem that mason was having with the iPad rebooting is likely due to the way jailbreakme 3 works rather than a problem with NP. The same thing was happening with BiteSMS on iPhones jailbroken with jailbreakme 3. Something to do with the jailbreak using unionfs instead of stashing I think.

mason Wrote:a warning for all ipad2 users. i gave it a shot on my jailbreaked ipad2 (bought it from cydia) seems to work fine with xbmc until i restarted the pad. then it fucked up the springboard, and rebooted if i tried to start anything. needed to rebuild the device via DFU mode and lost everything.after several restores i found out its clearly notify pro, even with a maiden install without anything. be sure to have ssh installed on your pad, then you can ssh into the device and remove the package via dpkg. to sad if found this out when i allready lost everything.
hey mason, looked into it a bit haven't tried it yet since not home, but i heard if you do the jailbreak using jailbreakme.com, you need to install all the upgrades from cydia afterwards "essential upgrades" and then try to install notify pro...i've heard that might fix it.
Not sure though will try later and confirm.

johoja of course push notifications, love the feature to get twitter pushes and mails send to the tv without looking on the pad if its something important since the android app only supports calls and sms, so with this working on the pad I'm always on top of things
edit: I think i had that installed, but as far as i see it this only fixes the pdf exploit. After rebooting the device the icons on the springpad where out of order with hughe gapes between, the devices was locked in portrait mode, also the keyboard (swipping to the whole left) where stuck in the 'iphone' variant and starting anything resulted in a crash.
