The title pretty much sums it up. I often feel like having notifications on my iPhone are a lot easier to notice, especially if you step away from the computer for a few moments to do something and come back.

Ideally I would like an AppleScript or something similar that forwards my Notification Center items to my iPhone using Pushover or Prowl (ideally Pushover).

Anyone have any experience with this?

An extensive search has determined the following:

There are a number of ways to SEND notifications TO Notification Center in Mountain Lion.

There are currently no hook in AppleScript to read notifications FROM Notification Center. This would be a key starting point in piping such notifications to Pushover or Prowl.

Conclusion: As of OS X 10.8.2 - no. Sorry. :(

Good luck and happy notifying!


I'm using EventScripts to do similar (Hazel triggers Applescript). See example here: http://www.mousedown.net/mouseware/Event_Scripting.html EventScripts is a cheap app that's available on the Mac App Store.

It doesn't need one of EventScripts 'events' just something to run the AppleScript and Tell EventScript to notify via PushOver.
