Pushover for Desktop Now Available

Today we’re excited to announce that Pushover for Desktop is now available!

Pushover for Desktop is an in-browser desktop client for Pushover allowing you to receive instant push notifications on your desktop just like you already do on your iPhone, iPad, and Android devices.

While the Pushover for Desktop site is open in any tab of your Chrome or Firefox browser on Mac, Windows, and Linux/Unix, you’ll receive instant popup notifications for new messages with the same icons and sounds you’re used to from our mobile apps (which you can of course silence):

On Chrome, you’ll see notifications in its Notification Center which gives a quick history of your recent alerts:

On Mac OS X (Mountain Lion and newer), registering with Safari will take advantage of the new Notification Center and push notifications built into OS X, allowing you to receive push notifications without any browser open at all, even on your lock screen:

A handy feature of Pushover for Desktop is the ability to quickly send notifications to your other Pushover devices. While you’re on your desktop, you can quickly send a note or a webpage link to your phone for viewing later:
