A year ago today Bronson Beta released an updated fourth beta of its Mail.appetizer notification plugin.
When I first wrote this post a few days ago, I misread the 2005 for 2006 (Whoops!). But my laziness is your gain, as it gives this excellent plugin a much deserved run, even if nothing has changed. That’s my line, and I’m sticking to it :)
This version hides itself better when Mail.app is the active app.
Since I first blogged about Mail.appetizer , it’s got better in other ways. It is now a universal binary and 10.4.x compatible.
Its notifications are still as beautiful as ever:
I read in my earlier post that in September last year, I was mad for this app. Since then, I have learnt to wean myself off “instant email notification gratification”.
But if you like to know about your new mail right away, you can’t go past this. GrowlMail doesn’t have half the flexibility and smoothness of Mail.Appetizer.
Mail.Appetizer is donation-ware and is available from the developer’s web site .
UPDATE: Italics mark a revision on 11 July 2006.
