@zettt of Mac OS X Screencasts posted a great Keyboard Maestro macro for sending messages to mobile devices using the awesome Pushover service. I had never heard of Pushover before but was impressed with the additional features it provides over Prowl.
Besides sending simple messages, you can also send links. And since I’m using iOS, I can also send application URL schemes. This is where the power of Pushover comes into play.
Although using the service is free, you must purchase an app for iOS or Android. Well worth the asking price.
You can grab Pushover directly from iTunes here for $3.99…
Send to Pushover Alfred Extension
Since Pushover uses a simple
REST API, it is very easy to use in various ways.
To create a simple Alfred extension to send a message to your mobile device, simply create a new
Shell Script extension and place the following in the
1 2 3 4 5
USER_KEY with your keys, save and rock.
EDIT: You can download the extension here
