These animal sound app names might be getting a bit out of hand, but the new Hiss app will bridge your Growl notifications to the new Notification Center in OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion. Growl was the original-gangsta solution for notifications on OS X before Apple went ahead and ported its Notification Center to Mountain Lion. Some worried that Growl would grow quiet as a result, but Hiss from Collect3 is helping it re-find its voice. 9to5Mac has a review of the application, which is still in beta. The software preempts Growl’s notifications and reroutes them to the official Notification Center. It does have a few limitations, though, as it doesn’t show the icons for the specific apps, instead bundling them all together under Growl. Read the full story at The Next Web.
