Prowler is a simple OS X widget that lets you send messages to any iPhone or iPod Touch running Prowl, delivered immediately using push notifications. A fast and easy solution for posting URLs to your handheld, or any other info or notices you might want to push.

Enter your API key, readily available at prowl.weks.net after logging in, and you’re ready to go! Sending a push notification requires title and/or message, along with a selectable urgency level. Any included links will automatically show up as clickable on your device.

By clicking the download link, you signify your acceptance of the following agreement. This application is freeware, to be used and abused however you like. However, the author(s) assume absolutely no liability, and the software is offered with no warranty or quality assurance. And God forbid you use it in the operation of nuclear facilities (a warning I see in the EULA of so many applications, I really do wonder how exactly someone could use a graphics utility in the operation of a power plant). In short, use at your own risk.
