Stackpop notification

Stack Exchange meets OS X Notification Center. Keep up to date with all the most recent activity regarding your questions, answers, and more with Stackpop, an OS X application that lives in the menu bar.

I'm releasing this version of Stackpop as a public beta. It will no longer function after December 1, 2014.

What happens after the beta expires? And how does your app compare to Newt (which is admittedly getting a little long in the tooth)? –  Martijn Pieters Feb 11 at 19:07
    
@MartijnPieters I'll release a new version. Stackpop embraces 10.9-era technologies (app sandbox, Notification Center, Retina). –  Jacob Budin Feb 12 at 13:52
    
I'll have to upgrade to 10.9 finally then if only to test. How does it handle reputation from per-site metas? Outside of meta.stackoverflow.com accounts on meta don't have independent reputation, but Newt does echo rep changes on those as the reputation is synched once an hour. –  Martijn Pieters Feb 12 at 13:59
    
thanx this is awesome app, but i have trouble after install and launch, too many requests from your ip if i open browser and go to stackexchange. –  Monk_Code Mar 26 at 11:49
    
@Monk_Code You must have other apps, scripts, or sites using the Stack Exchange API under your username. Try clicking the "Apps" link in your Stack Exchange user panel and removing those you aren't using anymore. –  Jacob Budin Apr 1 at 2:56
