Stackpop 1.0 Beta
An intuitive Mac OS X utility for Stack Exchange users that provides notifications whenever you receive messages, comments, chat messages and more
Working with Stackpop is a breeze because it just sits in your menu bar, waits for new notifications and displays them automatically. Moreover, Stackpop supports the Stack Overflow and Stack Apps sites and allows you to easily log in and authorize the app.
When a notification occurs (answers, comments, chat messages, badges, privileges, suggested edits and reputation), Stackpop displays it on your desktop in notification bubbles that can be configured via the Notification Center settings.
Furthermore, the app provides a menu bar item where you can access the preferences or quit the app. In the Preferences window, you can deauthorize the app, toggle an option to automatically launch the app at login, select the primary site and the type of notifications you want to receive.
Stackpop checks for new alerts every 5 minutes and no options are provided in this respect. Although you cannot change the refresh interval, you are able to change the notification categories you want to be checked.
Another advantage of using Stackpop is that you can click on the popup message to go directly to the post in the message. In addition to this, the app is sandboxed and supports retina-quality assets.
In a nutshell, the Stackpop app is a time-efficient and non-obtrusive app that delivers custom Stack Exchange notifications directly on your desktop. It comes with a simple configuration process and a free price tag.
