    Is it possible to get notifications on your iPhone to show up on a mac? Like responding to a text message or something?

    Yeah, this would be great. I'd want something to work with the ipad also. Like if you had you iPhone and ipad, or iPhone and Mac close to each other they would connect by Bluetooth and you could use your Mac/ipad to get your calls, alerts, and texts. This would be very convenient, plus when I am home and ge an email I don't get all three devices alerting me.

    Possible? Yes. Is there an app out there that can do it? No.


    It's possible, in that it shouldn't be too hard for Apple to integrate that feature. Push notifications are just XMPP messages anyway, nothing too special. Mac apps like Adium and other IM chat programs use the same protocol all the time.

    But for it happen, Apple need to develop the app or make the incorporation into OS X to make it happen, and so far it hasn't happened.

    Personally, I'd like to see them start by using a framework like Growl. That would make it simple and uncluttered.

    Or iCloud. I would love to reply to my texts on my iPad or Mac.

    You can, via AIM or Ichat. But not "natively".

    I do like using iMessage on either iPhone or ipad, but I like the idea of Bluetooth or some other way so that your devices know if they are close enough to each other that alerts don't have to sound on all of them. You could set it up so that each device has a priority so the ones with a lower priority alerts are off if the higher priority device is in the same proximity.

    Something like that anyway:cool:.

    if you jailbreak, theres an app that lets you VNC into your iPhone, and from there you can see notifications, text, etc...not a nicely designed computer interface, but it works

    it doesn't even have to be that complicated. There could just be a "prioritize iPad" option on iPhones and iPod Touches, and then, if it detects that the iPad is actively in use, it sends the alert only there
