Est. Budget: $150.00
Interested in building a menu bar application.
The application will periodically check a URL for updates. When updates are available, the icon will change to include the count of notifications and a Growl notification will be shown. Clicking the icon will show a menu of recent, un-clicked alerts. Clicking on an alert will open a webpage and hide the alert from the menu.
The application is very similar to SENotifier (http://stackapps.com/questions/3081/senotifier-a-stack-exchange-inbox-notifier-for-mac-os-x).
