# Mountain Growl
+## What's this?
+
+So you've installed Mountain Lion with the all new [Notification Center](http://www.apple.com/osx/whats-new/#notification-center). Good for you!
+But what's this? All those old [Growl](http://growl.info) notifications mixed with the shiny and new. Doesn't seem right, eh?
+
+Enter _Mountain Growl_:

+
+Other solutions like [Hiss](http://collect3.com.au/hissapp/) are okay, but a actually a weird hack with a lot of down sides. So while waiting for Growl 2 (which hopefully will support the Notification Center) why not use the current Growl with a plugin that does the necessary. All as a 1st class citizen in the Growl.

## Installation
-- I'm assuming you've already have Growl installed via the [App Store](http://itunes.apple.com/de/app/growl/id467939042?mt=12)
-- Go & download the latest version from the [GitHub download page](https://github.com/stigi/MountainGrowl/downloads)
-- Double click it & Growl should take the install process from there
+- I'm assuming you've already have Growl installed. If not you can get it from the [App Store](http://itunes.apple.com/de/app/growl/id467939042?mt=12)
+- Go & download the latest version Mountain Growl from the [GitHub download page](https://github.com/stigi/MountainGrowl/downloads)
+- Double click it & Growl should take the install process from there.
+
+
+## Downsides
+
+All the notifications are still sent by Growl, so they all show the Growl icon. I'm curious how Growl 2 will target that issue. Mountain Growl is showing the original application name in the subtitle though.
+
+
+## Upsides
+
+The standard Growl click actions also work.
## TODOs
-- Website
-- Collecting High Fives
+- Add an option to switch title with subtitle
+- Create a proper website (is this actually needed?)
+- Collecting high fives
