    I've tried multiple ways of using Growl/Prowl to send SMS messages to my iPhone. Has anyone found a working way to do this? I've found what looks like a very good setup (linked below) but it's for windows not mac.

    I also tried using the Fluid app method, but it didn't self update or work well

    Any ideas on how to adapt the first method or make this work somehow?

    i'm trying to get them working as well... i tried messing around with the fluid app last night but couldn't get it to recognize either http://google.com/voice or http://www.google.com/voice, it just kept going to the google homepage as some others had described in the comments on the fluid link you provided

    it sounds like the other way might work if you can find a version of growl for OSX that has GNTP... at least that is what the developer who provided the solution for windows wrote

    the problem is i have yet to find anything that talks about GNTP on an OSX version, though i haven't looked very hard yet

    either way, i'm interested to know if anyone has gotten further

    UPDATE: lifehacker has a post detailing how to get them working using fluid... i haven't tried it yet, but it has some more info and looks promising http://lifehacker.com/5338591/turn-google-voice-into-a-growl+friendly-mac-app

    so i was able to get this half working... i get the badge on the icon in the dock and the growl notification, albeit a lame one i.e. "1 new inbox item," but it doesn't appear to auto-update which makes it pretty useless

    anyone have any ideas?
