Awesome new app displays iPhone notifications on your Mac

Updated Dec 19th, 2018 8:48PM EST
iPhone Notifications On Mac

Wouldn’t it be great if the notifications on your iPhone also popped up on your Mac while you were working or doing anything else on your computer? Wouldn’t it be great if you could pick and choose which iOS apps displayed notifications so you don’t lose your mind as 50 notifications pop up in the span of three minutes while your mom proceeds to like every photo in your Instagram timeline? Wouldn’t it be great if all this there were possible without jailbreaking your phone?

Say hello to Notifyr.

Available immediately in the App Store, Notifyr is a very nifty new app that connects to your Mac using Bluetooth Low Energy and offers everything mentioned above. Each time a notification hits your iPhone from one of the apps you designate, that notification will also be displayed on your Mac using the standard OS X notification mechanism.

Here’s some more info from the app’s description:

Notifyr shows all your incoming notifications from your iPhone on your Mac.

With Notifyr, you’ll never miss a notification again: you can keep your phone in your pocket and still know what’s going on. You can read your incoming WhatsApp messages, see who’s following you on Instagram or read any of the other kind of notifications from any app on your iPhone. It’s also possible to mute notifications from any app you like.

Once paired, you’ll never need to open the app on your phone again. When the connection gets lost, Notifyr will automatically reconnect to your phone once it becomes available again.

Because Notifyr uses Bluetooth Low Energy, you can keep using Notifyr all day without it draining your battery.

The app is compatible with the iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, iPhone 5c and iPhone 5s, and you’ll need one of the Mac computers listed below.

Notifyr is available immediately in the App Store for $3.99. A download link can be found below in our source section.
