Many folks expected Growl would fade after the release of OS X Notification Center — nevertheless this long-time Mac notification app is alive and kicking

Many people predicted that Growl would fade following Apple’s introduction of OS X Mountain Lion Notification Center — quite the contrary. A case in point is the release of Growl 2.0.1 (blog), a point release that underscores that this long-time Mac notification app is alive and kicking.

“This [release] resolves a few crash reports that we received, but more importantly it resolves the custom positioning problems that were there in 2.0,” writes Chris Forsythe. “We highly recommend updating to 2.0.1 as soon as possible.”

• Addresses the positioning problem that showed up in 2.0
• Addressed multiple crash reports

Growl is available via the Mac App Store ($3.99), which integrates very well with OS X Mountain Lion’s Notification Center.

Are you still using Growl? What use use cases and apps — iTunes, Pandora, BitTorrent, HandBrake?
