    I used to use Prowl quite extensively, to get notifications to my iPhone. However, I loathe the idea of installing Growl, especially since 2.x is ancient. Is there any way to send native mac notifications to an iPhone? To be clear, I am not referring to Continuity capability, or messages. I am referring to being able to have any apps mac notifications sent to my iPhone. TIA!

    It's probably a non-starter. Most developers have moved to native notifications, that's pretty much why Growl has faded away. I have some macOS apps that also have an iOS equivalent which will sync notifications. I wonder if you could do anything with IFTTT? I don't know, you will have to look into it.

    It's still the only way to receive Mac notifications on your iOS devices.

    Ridiculous that Growl went paid "to support development" ( and then there weren't any updates after 2013.

    Doesn't sound like anything else can do that yet, and there are many people who still want that.

    I like the ability to see when a render, bounce, download, or file copy is finished without being in front of a given computer.
