Configuring NMA Growl Plugin for MacOS

Now you can forward your Growl notifications from your Mac to your Android device in three easy steps!

Before we start, you will need:

  • Notify My Android Account (So you can get an API Key). You can register here .
  • Notify My Android installed on your Android device. You can get it on the Marketplace .
  • Growl installed on your Mac, of course.
  • A Notify My Android API Key, that you can find on your "My Account" page. To get one, login with your account then go to "My Account". If you don't see an API key on the right side of the page, like on the picture below, click on the "Generate New Key" Button and one should appear on your list.

Now you can proceed and install the Notify My Android plugin!

Step 1

First you need to download the DMG with our Growl Plugin from here : NotifyMyAndroid-1.0.0.dmg

Step 2

Second, open the DMG you just downloaded and double click on the Growl icon. The plugin will be automatically added to your Growl installation, like on the picture below:

Step 3

Growl will ask you if you want to open the Preferences panel to configure the pluging you just installed. Click "Yes" and when the Preferences opens, look for "NotifyMyAndroid" on the list of plugins and click on it. A panel like this one should open:

Add your 48-digit API key. You can find it on your "My Account" page and a prefix that will be added to the Application title, or leave the prefix blank if you want to.

Click on the "Preview" button to test if you entered the correct API Key. You should receive a notification on your Android if everything was ok. If you don't receive one within seconds, please double check your API key, make sure you can login on NMA Android application from your device and try again.

Remember to set "NotifyMyAndroid" as your "Default style" on the top of the Preferences panel, or click on the "Applications" tab and specify which applications you want to forward to NotifyMyAndroid one by one.

Enjoy! And if you have questions or problems, try our forums or on twitter. Or send us an email.
