I was bored and felt like design something.
This Mac app is what I created - I called it iNotified or whatever you like. I personally would rather be notified by one simple app that is loaded on launch of my machine than 5-6 applications I have to run manually to get updates (Twitter, Dribbble, Dropbox, etc...)

Oh and you can grab the psd file too. I'm a nice girl, you know :) Enjoy!

This is really nice. Would you be open to discussing on Skype? I've been working on something similar.
This is amazing! So clean and beautiful and easy to navigate. Keep up the great work!
@Shaun Moynihan, sure I'll catch you on Skype!
@David Kovalev, thanks :)
It looks good. My only comment is the anti-aliasing on the text. You have have set to "Sharp". I think it looks better when it's set to "Crisp". Here's an example. http://cl.ly/H1yb
@Uri Kelman, I don't see where it is better at all
@Julia Khusainova Look at the difference in the "d" in "data" on the top. The left one is much more crisp and light. The right one has a very heavy terminal on the "d". It looks like the weight is not disrupted properly.
@Uri Kelman, well no - the right one looks way better to me - it is clear, prominent and clean (which is sharp as I made it). On my mac, at least. Your version looks a bit fuzzy and the timeline text getting lost - too thin to my taste.
Trust me, I played around with different versions of text rendering and that once appeared to be the best.
@Julia Khusainova It only really makes a difference when the letters are displayed so small. Around 12/11 px.
Here's another example.
The left one is using "Sharp" anti-aliasing. Notice how the semi-transparent pixels are darker. It also distributes the transparent pixels in an odd manner which makes different parts of the letter seem thicker.
The right one is using "Crisp" anti-aliasing. The semi-transparent are lighter which gives it a nicer appearance when using small fonts.
Sorry about going on about this, it's a just a pet peeve of mine.
@Julia Khusainova Okay. I guess we'll have to agree to disagree on this one. Regardless, it's a really nice shot. I love all of your work that I've seen.
@Uri Kelman, thanks for your comments and discussion. It's always interesting to know how other guys doing their work.
I use Crisp all over the place but here the Sharp one looked better to me.
@Julia Khusainova Fair enough. Keep up the amazing work. Very inspirational. Feel free to comment/critique any shots I post.
@Uri Kelman, sure thing. This is why I post my work.
That's a beauty!
