Tool of the Day: WordPress Notifier for Mac OS X

An amazing tool came to my attention today, the WordPress Notifier. Similar to the Google Notifier it sits in your OS X status bar and alerts you when you get new comments to your blog. This is great because it allows you to react and respond quicker without having to keep your wp-admin page up all day or constantly get emails when you have other work to do. It even uses growl for the notifications.

It works with WordPress 2.7+ or but does not yet support WordPress MU. I encourage everyone who has a wordpress blog and uses a mac to take this for a spin.

An OS worth writing about, OS X 10.5 is by far the most elegant and polished OS i have used to date.
