    There must be a few Redditors on MacRumors?

    I'm the developer behind Reddit Notifier. It's a little envelope that sits up in your menubar, just like on the Reddit website.

    Normally, the envelope is black. But when you get a PM on Reddit, or when someone replies to one of your comments, the envelope turns orangered. Click on the envelope, and it will take you directly to your new mail.

    Supports:
    - Orangered replies + PMs
    - Modmail
    - Modqueue
    - Cakeday!

    Forgive what may be an idiot question. Am I understanding that Reddit with notify me if someone quotes me on MacRumors - as the "Quote Notification" does on the site?

    If yes, another whiz-bang question: I'm a relative newbie to computers, purchasing, etc. - how do I use the promo codes that you provided in the Mac App Store - or how do I use them if I go directly to your site. I have never used a promo code.

    Thanks for your help...:D

    I'm not entirely sure what you're asking with the first question but I'll do my best! This doesn't have anything to do with notifications for Mac Rumors, it's for messages you receive on http://www.reddit.com/ . The app won't do you much good if you don't have an account there :)

    As for using a promo code, there should be a "Redeem" link on the right-hand side of the Mac App Store front page. Let me know if you can't find it.

    Sorry I'm such a simpleton. You understood my foolish question perfectly and answered it. I'm embarrassed to say I don't know what Reddit is and, consequently, don't have an account with Reddit.

    Very sorry to have wasted your time.:eek:

    Thanks for your response.:)

    Au contraire, it is I who have wasted your time by introducing you to http://www.reddit.com/

    Get ready for lots of time wasting. This is a good place to start: http://www.reddit.com/r/apple

    Anyone have a user report after a few weeks of Reddit Notifier in your menubar? Working well? Getting lots of orangereds?

    I think there are still some promo codes left, FYI.

    What have you done? He was probably a productive member of society and now you've ruined his life.

    I got this review today ಠ_ಠ

    -------------

    Mis-information by Miladg69
    It is horrible when you don't provide enough information on the app description, or on their (garbage) website; and let people believe that this may be able to check other (e.g. gmail) accounts. I think they should have clearly written: CHECK YOUR REDDIT ACCOUNT).

    I will give 4-5 stars if that was the case, this is a request to the program developer to work around and make a useful little application.
    I am very frustrated.


    -------------

    Yikes.
