How to Use Notification Center in OS X Mountain Lion
If you’re familiar with the Notification Center layout in iOS 5, and with Growl, a third-party cross-platform notification app, you’ll be right at home in Mountain Lion’s Notification Center. When you receive email, a reminder of an upcoming event, or alerts from most Apple apps – and from third parties who’ve updated their apps – you’ll see an alert in the upper right of your Mac’s display.
Here’s how to use and configure Notification Center.
1. Go to the Notifications preference pane under System Preferences. Here you can easily configure alerts for every supported app.
Bonus Tip: Here’s a tip for Growl users: A new freeware utility, Hiss (www.collect3.com.au/hiss), will automatically transfer Growl notifications to Notification Center. You’ll be advised to quit Growl first if it’s running. Hiss is still a beta, so watch for bugs.
